First, I found this lovely stack of fabric waiting in my mailbox today. Happiness! I donated most of my scraps to my sister in law for her new library decor, so of course, I had to buy some new pieces! Robert Kaufman Metro Living Circles, Patty Young's Grand Bazaar, and Suzy Ultman Appleville Apple Faces.
Second, my daughter has been going to birthday parties like they're going out of style. One a week, for at least the last month. For real. Sometimes, twice a week. I was pondering this next party, because it is a good friend's sixth birthday and I am tired--TIRED--of Target gifts. (Plus, I am super poor.) She recently got an American Girl doll (Clara wishes it was her!), so I thought maybe I would make a few outfits for her. Here is the first one: a spring coat.
Note to self: Must iron. I love the toggle clasp thingies (official name).
There are more items coming. Itty bitty dresses are fun but hard to sew. I finally replaced my machine needle and it was like magic. Suddenly I could sew again! Ha. I suppose I should change that more often.
Until next time,
