Shopping with Girls

JoAnn fabrics was having a great sale on remnants, and I had a gift card, so me and the girls (4 and 2) went shopping the other day. The one thing about fabric shopping with 2 young girls is that they both feel that they must pick out their...

New Black Dress for the Baby

So…shiny black dresses are apparently hard to photograph, but I think you can get the general idea. I found this huge skirt at a yardsale this past summer for $1 that I decided to make a dress for the toddler out of.  You can’t see it really well in...

Camouflage Dress

Here’s my latest creation. A pink camouflage dress for my little girl. I was nervous about working with a knit since I have trouble with them stretching on me but this fabric worked great and it’s so comfortable! I have a shirt cut out for myself out of this...
