I know it's still Febuary.......

But, I'm so excited for Easter dresses! My favorite show is Project Runway, it's a show where they give aspiring fashion designers challenges and they have to make different clothes according to the challenge. They recently challenged the designers to make a little girl's dress and a coordinating out fit for a mom. So fun! It made me very excited for Easter. I've mentioned before that I learned to sew from my mom and she made us some really great Easter dresses, My sister and I were always coordinated. Now that I am a mom I love to make my girls matching dresses. Now I haven't always been very good at taking pictures of my stuff so sorry for the quality of the pictures. But here are a few I've done in the last few years.

These are last years dresses. They are linen with an embroidered hem. I made one for my niece too but I never got a pictures of them all together.

These are some of my favorites. They were very casual and fun. I paired them with some fun leggings.

These to are my all time favorite. I had a picture in my head of what I wanted these to look like but couldn't find a patten so I made my own pattern and they turned out better than the picture in my head. I've never used a pattern since.

These were not for Easter, but I love these dresses.
So, I'd love to make dresses for your little princess. Pricing on dresses varies, but start at $20 + supplies and go up depending on how complicated the dress is.

Baby Dolls

A few weeks ago a customer asked me if I could make some diapers for her daughter's baby doll.

I think they turned out pretty cute.
She also asked if I could do doll clothes. I told her no, that they were more trouble than they were worth. But I couldn't resist and gave it a try anyway. I figure if she didn't end up wanting them that I knew a few little girls that would like them.

And actually. They were pretty fun to do.

So If any one is interested in doll clothes. Let me know.

I plan of charging $2 each for the diapers or 3 for $5.

The dresses are $5.

Don't forget I also do doll blanket/pillow sets for $8.

I also did this quilt recently for another customer. But when she got to my house she saw the yellow and pink daisy quilt and changed her mind and took it instead.
I didn't like this quilt when I was making it. It just didn't look like I wanted it to. But, once I finished it and got it quilted I decided I love it. I did a combination of traditional tying and the international stitch.

It is cotton flannel. 42in X 42in. It has the cutest Fairy print mixed into the squares and for the backing. I'm asking $45.
Let me know if your interested in anything you see here.
