Creating before writing

As someone who loves to sew, I have spent more time creating before writing this week so I’m going to show you what I’ve been working on. I am super proud of getting my nieces’ Fourth of July dresses done and mailed out before the holiday this year! This is big because I still have the fabric to make their Christmas pajamas in tact…their Christmas pajamas for 2015.

I absolutely love how their firework dresses turned out. The Little Miss Sunshine Dress by Peek-a-boo was perfect for what I had in mind. This fabric is all from Peek-a-boo as well and it sews like a dream.

I also only ordered one yard of the firework fabric so I had to get creative. This pattern allowed me to get the most out of that one yard of fabric.

Their favorite part is probably going to be the twirlability these dresses have.

Of course I got that necklace that matches perfectly from Tickled Pink Designs since she is my necklace dealer. She always seems to have one to match whatever I am making the girls!

I also got another Little Rascal Romper done. This time I tried the dolman sleeve option for my 2.5 year old niece. I love this orange with pink polka dot fabric.

Now on to today’s project…a shore bag with these gorgeous Art Gallery fabrics! I can’t wait to show you the completed bag next week.

How about if we have a little contest…I am in the process of adding something new to the Etsy shop this afternoon. Something awesome. Something I think you guys will love. If you have read this far, leave me a comment with a guess as to what it might be and I’ll select a winner using random.org for someone to win a $15 shop credit. This amount also happens to be the price of this new item (minus shipping) so you could get one for yourself! I am just waiting for the mailman to deliver the surprise to a friend so I can finally show it off.
