|My little beginner sewer
CJ had tons of patterns for me to choose from and I selected this little vintage number (circa 1970):
|I love how short the dresses are and that the little redhead looks like a baby Lisa!
Well, this is what we ended up with (she would say it was all me, but I honestly can't take all of the credit):
Another nesting project (since we don't have a nursery to decorate - man I wish we did!!) I've taken up is bow making. I mean I am from South Georgia, so this little girl will not be seen without a bow in her hair. I tried a few different techniques, but I think I like the pinwheel bow the best. I still want to make a huge southern one with some ribbon about 3 inches wide! I just need to find the ribbon. Here are a few of the bows I've made so far. I just used ribbon and felt that I had and then some ribbon that came on some gifts to get started.
|My friend Rachel gifted me one of her precious headbands with a tuxedo bow like this which inspired me to get crafting!
Now I just need to attach the clips and make the elastic headbands. The headbands will have a small band of ribbon around them so I can clip bows onto them. Well, that's all of my craftiness as of late! Feel free to send any unwanted bows, ribbon, or fabric my way. I love charitable donations!
