My First Peasant Dress

If you sew for girls at all maybe you would've have noticed all the Peasant Dress patterns around at the moment. I found this one on Create Kids Couture called Jewel's Stripwork Dress and I love it.



and here is my version in a 3T. This was such an easy pattern to sew, the hardest part was choosing my fabrics. This is a fat quarter friendly pattern, all the pieces came from a set of fat quarters that I have had in the cupboard for ages. The only thing I would change is next time I will make each strip longer, but I am still happy with it. Fabric is Molly's Garden by Cheryl Reinhard Jukich - Threadbare Pattern Company for Camelot Cottons, and I had to go through all my leftovers to find one that had the description on the selvage lol. 


and on my very obliging doll.



Great pattern and I will be making more.

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!

Monster Pyjama Eater

LOVE this pattern by Sew Fearless Patterns. I have been wanting to make Steve a PJ bag for some time as all his clothes end up screwed up on the floor or his chest of drawers, so when I found this pattern pic on Pinterest, I was sold. Of course, way back then, it was a free pattern.... now so popular the Designer has finessed the pattern and made it for sale.

The pattern is basically rectangles and for those pieces that do need a pattern piece, these are provided. The instructions are provided in comic book format which made for fun reading!



The only thing I would change next time, is I would make the pillow part a little larger. By the time I had put some filling in the back there wasn't a lot of room for Steve's PJ's in the front :)

Baby Quilt finished

Finally put together my new grandbaby's quilt. I am happy with how it went together and my daughter and SIL loved it , so that is great. It was presented on the weekend but I bought it home again so that I can embroider the new baby's name on it when he/she arrives.


Isn't it cute!

Have a great day wherever  you are!
