Minnie Mouse dress

This is not something I did for KCWC, actually I really struggled with finding an hour each day this week- so scratch that last post- I worked on putting the sewing room together a little each day, should have documented that with photos. But seriously I am really inspired by all the moms out there that create beautiful things everyday- I've just been reading a few posts of the KCWC and there is a lot of talent out there!! Where do you find the time!!
On to the Minnie mouse dresses- I did these while at my sisters house this summer. It was my nephews Micky Mouse theme 3rd birthday so I made Cece and Tilly matching dresses (they loved being twins).I didn't have a pattern just kept in mind the pillow case patterns out there. It was a quick project that turned out perfect for the party.

Kids clothes week challenge

I just made the commitment to sew an hour each day this week. That means I really do have to dig up that sewing machine and all the supplies I will need to make T a few clothes. I'm going to concentrate on her birthday-halloween party. I'm not sure how much I'll get done but I am excited for the challenge. 
Visit  Meg's blog Elsie Marley for the details.

snow white

That was a very long unintentional break from blogging! Some excuses would be that we left Portland for the summer and lived with my mom in Maryland while Richard did some work in DC. Another would be that we packed up our entire home before we left and moved it to a new home which we are now unpacking. But it's probably more like I have been lazy bones and not feeling like sewing after these long days- although I did sew a little bit while at my mom's house.
So the other day I was reading one of my fav blogs MADE and right now she is celebrating YELLOW! She inspired me to get my behind in gear and share some of the things I've been making. Yellow is my favorite color and I guess that I migrate toward it when buying fabric and other things. I have a lot of soon to be finished projects in yellow- I just have to get that sewing room set up!!
While in MD I made 2 snow white dresses. It began as one for my niece who is 4 but the size turned out to small so I made another bigger one for her and gave the smaller one to a friend. Of course I didn't get a chance to take pictures of them, luckily I got this shot of our friend in action.

Hopefully this will put me back in blogger mode and I will get sewing so I can share my creations with you!
