This past weekend my hubby had drill which left me with the girls, minus my normal weekend "brake". Include the rain and wind and we had some cooped up peeps here. I decided to sit down the the machine I have been neglecting for awhile. I guess not really neglecting because I finished the 2 in 1 outfit for Michelle of Muffin Tin Mom. It is for her niece. She wanted a little dress and I took it a step further and added ruffled capri's so when she is bigger she can still wear the pillowcase dress as a top and add the pants for a while new outfit, it turned out so cute I think.
I finished the below summer dress for Ciera last Thursday. The pattern comes from Indietutes. I have been following her since I started blogging, she used to be called "Just Tuts". I remember when she came up with this lace up dress tut, I loved it and immediately made one for C. Well now she has a eBook for it with a pattern, so yay, much easier...I am not so good drafting my own patterns...lol
What sewing did I do this weekend?
Sookie got a new fabric collar. The parachute clip as a reflector on it which I think is key for animals. She looks so cute in it. I have a couple more in the works for her. How many collars does one dog need? I dunno but I think it's like shoes and woman...lol
I bought some fabric from So Fun Fabrics on Etsy. Since we live in the same city I got to meetup with her for my fabric delivery on Sunday. She is a total sweetheart and I fell even more in love with the fabrics I bought once I saw them in person. This is what I made with it and I LOVE IT!
This pattern is from Portabellopixie. I bought this pattern when I first started really sewing clothes for C. It's been awhile since I made one but when I saw the fabrics I knew, this was the dress I had to make. This is by far one of my most favorite patterns. It always draws attention. So I wanted to make something for C's St Patty's Day at school. They are supposed to wear something "green" instead of their usual uniforms however I didn't want to do the traditional St Patty's theme, so this turned out perfect! I am so in love with it.
I also had some secret sewing going on this weekend. It involves a giveaway for dog and owner coming soon so keep your eyes out for that one :)
