Sewing Clothes Kids Love

I just received my book in the mail today! Did some reading, and now I am ready to tackle at the Feliz Dress!!! I plan on making it for Fourth of July partying! This book was written very well, and, needless to say, I am a bit scared! I do consider myself an intermediate sewer, however, this pattern looks definitely more complicated than what I have ever sewn. I am excited to begin on something new and fun. There are 50 days left of school, so I think I should make a plan to get this dress done in time for school to get out. This way my daughter can wear this all summer long!!! I will keep updated on the progress I am making with this dress. :) Wish me luck!

Another Dress and Undies!

This picture is of the hat I crocheted for her! She loves it so much she wears it around the house even! She sometimes won't take it off!!! It's too cute!

This dress is another Spin Around Dress. I made it out of my late grandmother's fabric. She loved Elvis so much, and I knew I wanted to make a dress out of that fabric. :) It still needs snaps and a sash, and then it will be ready to go.

WE ARE POTTY TRAINED!!! WOOHOO!!! All of a sudden one day we decided we were going to go potty, and I wasn't going to stop her. She has been trained for two weeks now. A cousin gave me these cuts and I sewed them up. They are all just the layers of fabric for undies, except the sail boats. That has one soaker in it. She loves her new undies, especially the "chickens" and the hearts.

Ooga Booga Love!

I made another Spin Around Dress, but altered it a bit. I made the dress shorter, for a shirt, then added sleeves, and pants to complete an outfit. I think Danica loved it, because her "modeling" pictures are adorable. I had so much fun making this, and it's my first outfit for my daughter.

It Spin Around? Dress!!

I decided to make my daughter a new dress (or two) because we are getting into the potty learning stage, and diapers are in our past! I found this pattern for free and decided to try and whip it up. I am amazed at how well it turned out! I love this pattern, and now I am altering the pattern a bit to make it shorter for a shirt, and then I am going to sew some pants to make with it. Then she will have an outfit. :)

I love sewing her some clothes! It's nice to cut the fabric, sew it up, and see a finished product!!! I can't wait to sew her some more clothes!
