Smocking Project

This is the dress that does not fit anyone. Can't imagine what I was thinking when I cut it. But I think it looks cute on the hanger. So I guess it is just a picture dress! I used a McCalls pattern I had never used before. That was not a good idea. Oh well! On to my next project.

T-shirt design

I saw a picture of a t-shirt and thought it was very cute so I wanted to make one but there wasn't a pattern that was like it. So I thought maybe I could design one myself and this is the result. The yoke on the front is curved downward to the underarm seam. Hard to tell in the picture. Next I think I will make a skirt to go with it.

More Bag Pictures

I finished 8 more bags. They turned out very nice and Alex was thrilled with them. I was thrilled that she was thrilled. I don't think the pictures do them justice.

Fiesta Skirt

I found the directions for making this skirt on the internet so I thought I would try it. It turned out real nice. I also learned to use my rolled hem foot for my sewing machine as the top of each ruffle is done with a rolled hem. Now if I could just learn to take better pictures!!
