I finally got pictures of these-- Sheesh!

I made these outfits a little over two years ago. I was so surprised when I found out these two little missies still fit in the dresses. They were originally done for a wedding reception, but it never happened. This chick is so posey. It was hard for me to get a good picture which is why I cut off part of her head. -- These were made from Simplicity 5704.

And here's her older sister in her red dress that still fits.

The next ones are Halloween costumes I did for these sweet little red heads.

Little Miss "B" as Raggedy Ann- I even dyed the tights. My sister has a life-size Raggedy Ann Doll. That was the only pattern I had (if you can call it a pattern, based on the fact the doll is over 20 years old and like 4 1/2 feet tall) other than the large circle for the hat, which was McCall's 2337

Little Miss "J" as a Black Bunny-- she loved it so much and I think it was the first time she got to wear this costume since it was originally done for her older sister. She wanted to sleep in it. The ears were the bane of my existence!! It took me 3 times to get them to work. Either the ears were uncooperative or the headband kept breaking. - The bunny was made using McCall's 8953

Little Miss "B" again as a monkey. This fit her a little bit better Halloween 2010. Little sprout just keeps growing. -The monkey was made using McCall's 8938.

Happy Birthday and a list of firsts

This little gal turned 7 on Tuesday. Not only is she one of my favorite neighbors, but she's my niece.
This was the look on her face when I showed her...


I used McCall's pattern 6020 for the bodice and sleeves. The brown satin I had on hand from a killer dealer at the fabric store.

It was my first time sewing a lace overlay. Not too shabby huh? I learned SOOO much doing this.

I love the side gathered sleeves and the flower was my own addition. You can't see it, but I also did a crinoline. First time actually sewing with tulle. I had only ever done the no-sew tutus before. It wasn't too bad, but the crinoline should have been more gathered. Oh well. next time maybe.

It's Finally Done!!

Hooray! Can I get a woot! woot! This beast is finally done. It is my first attempt at a crocheted blanket. The original idea was to have it done for my sister's wedding, but that didn't happen. She got married in August of 2010! But, alas, it is finally done. After over 100 hours and 18 months, I can finally mark this off my to-do list. This was as closed to her colors as I could get. They were electric blue and pewter. No too shabby huh?

It wasn't as big as what I had pictured in my mind, but is a nice twin size quilt measuring in at 55"x71".
