That Thing Called Life....It Happens
Husband got sick, cheer/football started, craft fair, county fair, I got sick, ect, ect. Like a lot of things we do, we start with such good intentions but then things happen and guess what? We're human.
So instead I am going to show you some of the things I've been working on and when I can, I'll show you tutorials. Any patterns that I purchase I won't be able to give you the how to, but I can tell you where you'll find it. I'm all about home/hand made everything. You don't have to be a pro, just a little creativity and if you don't have that don't worry. There's plenty of inspiration out there to get you started.
Now, I'll leave you with this (before I have to go referee the kiddo's). For homecoming week at my daughter's school they gave the kids a theme for each day. The first one was to wear a shirt or hat showing your favorite team. Of course we had nothing on hand for our daughter so off to buy fabric I went. Check out our little Tennessee Vol girl :)
This is made from a pattern I got on one of my all time fave sites http://www.youcanmakethis.com/ and the pattern is The Pink Dress by Lily Bird Studio. LOVE this dress pattern. It puts a new twist on the Pillow Case Dress. Now the first time I made it, I worked on it all Sunday afternoon. But it was a new pattern and my 3 and 6 yr olds were going at it non stop.
I can tell you one thing about it that I did different. When I unfolded my fabric, I realized that with the way the fabric was laid out, I didn't have enough for the length of the dress. So what I lacked for it, I just added to the bottom band. The same can be done with lots of patterns, even one that doesn't call for a bottom contrast band.
Ok, that's it for today but I promise to keep these more regular...lol!
