Back to my roots.

My sewing roots that is!! This is where it all started.....


sewing for my kids. I decided to sew something for the GD's (after my daughter showed me a dress she had bought and I was thinking how simple they are to make) so I went to Spotlight got a couple of patterns and found this fabric for $5m. This was the pink dress in the Burda pattern, the New Look pattern I will make for Isabella. Even if they just wear them around the house it's another dress. Now that I know the pattern I would like to get a nice Amy Butler or some Prints Charming fabric to do a couple.



I finally decided I was brave enough to attempt Mrs Perkins again. Last time was a bit traumatic with those darn horns...BUT...this time I had the bamboo skewer and they were both turned in 5 minutes!! So the rest of her should be a breeze. I just couldn't resist this orange Prints Charming fabric, as soon as I saw it I knew what it was destined to be.
