This is a quick one. I have lots to share... just not enough hours in the day :)
For this post I wanted to drop a quick note about a couple of quick sewing projects:
These are quick and easy - just buy ruffle fabric and matching elastic for the waistband. Measure to the desired width and join together. Naomi's ruffles are horizontal, and mine are vertical. It was fun to play around with the fabric, and there is no shortage of online tutorials - here's a particularly pretty and feminine on: Coastal Curtsy skirt . Tempted :)
Minnie Mouse Dress:
This uses pre-smocked fabrics from Joanns. Again, measure to desire size and seam up the back. That's it. Literally in 5 minutes I had a completed dress for Naomi. I added a couple of ribbons for shoulder straps and it was done! Naomi is a very happy girl!
Swap Blocks for Guild - Liz's Star Quilt.
The guidelines on this were really straightforward. Make a star, any star, using the muted fabrics provided, and add a pop of colour from your own stash, if you so desire. In the piccie below you can see all the squares she has received to date, and the 2 I contributed.
That's it for now. I have lots of knitty goodness to share next weekend :)
In the mean time, have a fabulous week,
