Well I have been very busy all afternoon and actually managed to get a few more things ticked off my 'to do' list.
First of all, I got my SIL's birthday present finished. Her birthday was on Tuesday but I knew that I wouldn't see her until Christmas day so I put it off for a few days to get some other sewing done.
So this is what I made her.
A Make-up bag.
I used a Fat Quarter of Nancy Blues (28959) by Windham Fabrics for the main colour and a cream bold cotton for the lining and the bottom trim. I clipped and sewed the corners on the bottom to give it a bit of a box shape on the bottom.
I really like the way it turned out that I'm thinking of making myself one (maybe after Christmas though).
I have also finished another dress. This time it was for Chelsea. Her Christmas day dress.
I used the left over fabric from Sophie's dress to quickly whip this one up. It is a simple shirred dress but I made some armholes and only shirred the top part of the dress. I then sewed on some lilac bias tape around the armholes and up into some shoulder ties and also as a trim on the bottom of the dress.
This is Chelsea saying "lessee" (Let's see) which she says after EVERY photo I take. It has become a lengthy process taking photos of her now as I have to show her on the preview screen what the photo looks like. Kids!! hehehe.
Anyways, it is almost bedtime, hopefully I can finish my list tomorrow so I can relax on Saturday :)
As always, Thank you for reading and have a lovely Friday...
