The Start Of Spring Sewing
This year I am making an effort to actually make some simple play clothes for Abby to wear. Which for me is very difficult. I am far from practical when I start playing with fabric and my machines. She requested some skirts so I came up with this design which is just a simple pull on skirt, but I wanted to jazz it up a little with cute little sash that that ties in the front in a big bow. Abby fell in love with them. Especially the one I made with my precious HR goldfish. I took a deep breath before I cut into it but I am very pleased with the results. Oh, BTW I'm not sure how well you can see it in the pictures but I actually made a cute tag out of the selvedge which has the name of the fabric line on it and Heather's name along with the dye dots. It's the entire length of the top layer and I really love how it looks. Especially because this is one of those treasured fabrics that holds a special place in my heart. Blah, blah blah...I am getting all mushy over fabric. Thanks so much for taking a peek!
