If I had a girl...

I'd be sewin' up a storm of these!

Tonight I took a sewing class from one of my favorite teachers.  I learned how to make this super cute little girl's dress that can easily become a shirt as they grow.  And the best part was learning how to do a french seam...will be using this and many more easy tricks very soon!

I don't have my own kiddos so I will be outfitting my family and friends with these this summer!  And I think I'm just going to have to make one or two or three for myself...pull out my favorite fabrics and put them to good use!

Starting a new quilt tomorrow...more sewing with friends.  I pulled a bunch of my favorite colors/patterns off the hard to let it go and cut it all up...almost thought about putting it back on the shelf...maybe a bit of my fabric hoardiness (is that a word?!)...and knowing that some stuff I can't find ever again.  More posts tomorrow as I cut and cry!!

That's all folks...til another time!  Sweet dreams!

It's SO hard to cut into some fabrics! Strange because if we create with them we'll see them and use them more than if they're in a cupboard. That little dress is very cute, the pattern would make great summer tops!!
