Well, maybe not all that lazy. The off and on rain has kept us home bound, but not bored! The creative juices seem to work on overdrive when the option of outdoor play is taken out of the scenario! We are settling into our summer rhythm. In other words, I'm getting ready to lose my sanity! The kids are out of school, and the noise level in the Wise household has achieved deafening levels! That being said, we really are having a relaxing weekend!
I have been meaning to make one of these since Erin posted her tutorial over here. And when I say one I really mean two because it would be tragic for only one girl to get ANYTHING! Needless to say, the twirly skirt was a BIG hit. Just in time to wear to church tomorrow. Of course Abby thinks she NEEDS a new pair of red ballerina flats to go with it. I may not disagree with that one too much! red flats and the cherries? Anyone else LOVING that pattern?
Thanks for all the tips about quilting. Here is the first try. Not too bad. It doesn't match up perfectly, but I kinda like it that way I think. And my walking foot...that thing is rockin cool! I think quilting is like anything else new. SCARY! I was really scared about trying it for fear that it would fall apart in my hands or come out of the washer in a million tiny pieces. Or worse yet, maybe I'm not as creative as previously thought. What if I ruin some of my precious fabric? Geez. Sounds pretty silly now. I have to say that I am glad that I have my first one under my belt, and now I'm on to try another! Maybe one with a more challenging pattern...or maybe the same pattern with straight seams!
Speaking of trying something new, here is one of Miss Morgan's creations! And she's not one bit scared! She has made about a half dozen of these little pouches. They are the perfect size for Polly Pocket storage!
