Well I noticed that I have had no comments on my blog and was concerned that since it has been awhile since my last post that maybe I was outta of the loop, luckily thats not the case. Apparently there was something screwy going on with my blog so hopefully I have it worked out and you all can now view my blog.
No sewing today, moving my dd back in with us so we will spend yet another day organizing and rearranging and then will have to start moving her n baby back in. Have a lot of sewing I want to do so this is really NO FUN!

Pillowcase dress!

Well I finally made my first pillowcase dress and bias tape, YAY! Both were very easy and fun to make.
I just love this fabric, I ordered it a couple weeks ago from and had the matching polka dot fabric in my stash. Sorry about the yucky pics these were takin with my cell phone and does the dress and fabric no justice. But like I said in my previous post I have a new camera now so my pics will be much better in following post.

My Bry being silly just makes the dress even cuter, dont ya think.
Like I said this lil dress was so simple to make, all I did was cute the arm hole by placing one of her existing dresses onto the corners of the fabric added my elastice at the top and bias tape around the arm holes which I continued as the shoulder ties and a band of matching fabric at the bottom, took about an hour to make because of all the yucky ironing of seams and such. I plan to make many more of the dresses, they are so cute and easy to wear and Ms. Bry just loves that they are comfortable and cool.
If you havent made one of these I suggust you do.
Tomorrow's sewing will be another pillowcase dress using the fabric I used on my mom-n-law apron gift.

Mothers Day sewing!

Happy Mothers Day!
Well I did get a couple of my Mom Day gifts completed and pics taken, ran out of stabalizer and Wal Mart nor Hobby Lobby have any so my other gifts will have to wait.

I had so much fun making this apron and tea towels. These gifts were made for my mother-n-law. The fabric is just darling and I actually have enough left over to make a cute lil pillowcase dress for my Bryanna.
Hope all of you had a wonderful Mothers Day, mine was great. My hubby ordered me a beautiful mothers ring(which is still not in, ugh) and today I got a Nikon Coolpix S8100 camera and an awsome dinner he grilled steaks out on the grill, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and chocolate cupcakes, yummmmm!
I am now just relaxing in my bed and enjoying the rest of the night cuddling with my honey.
Sorry for the bad pics, but like I said I have a new camera so from now on my pics will ROCK! :0)
