I’ve been on a sewing kick.

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.

The reverse side.


And this picture is just for fun.  Madelynn and I have the same purple flip-flops.  Her feet are SO MUCH smaller than mine but they kinda look the same. SDC16115

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.
