I’ve been on a sewing kick the past week. I’ve made a skirt for myself, a laptop bag that has turned into another one of Madelynn’s purses, 2 dresses for a friend(I don’t have pictures of those), and a dress for Madelynn. I have at least 2 more projects that I want to do right now and then 1 I’m going to do in the near future. I want to make Madelynn a skirt that matches mine and then I want to make me a skirt that matches Madelynn’s dress. I really love the idea of us matching. So here are my projects.
My skirt. I found the idea and tutorial for it at Keeping it Simple.
Next up we have my laptop bag. I found the tutorial for this over at My Backyard Eden. I modified the bag for me. Also because I couldn’t do things like add a zipper or that super cute ruffle she has on hers.
Finally we have the reversible sundress I made Madelynn. It is oh so adorable and Madelynn loves it. It took me 2 hours to make it. It will probably take me less time to make another one since I know what I’m doing now. It’s super easy. I found the tutorial and pattern over at Me and Madeline. I don’t know if she says her daughter’s name the same way I say mine but Madeline is a cutie too. I’ve decided I’m going to call this dress the rainbow sherbert sundress. The orange fabric I used is eyelet fabric. I used a cute green on the back so that it shows through the eyelet holes. You can’t see that very well in the pictures. I tried to take 1 to show you but it didn’t work out to well I don’t think.
I hope you can get some great ideas from the things I’ve made. They were all super easy and didn’t consume much time. I did all of the projects but the dress during 1 naptime. The dress I did last night before bed.
