Sewing Adventures: A Hodgepodge of Things!

Hi! I have an update to my many sewing exploits.

For my birthday, my sister’s fabulous godparents gave me doll patterns. One of them was the Frozen Hot Chocolate Holiday dress. It was originally made for velveteen fabric, but I did it in cotton and it turned out great! The pattern was surprisingly easy and the Gals all look fabulous in it.2013-11-02 00.10.49

Instead of Velcro, I put snaps down the back. Time consuming, but snag-free! 2013-11-02 02.18.00

Here are a pair of full length leggings from Liberty Jane’s pattern, made of rainbow chevron with special care to match the sides. It’s paired with the Handkerchief Skirt.


In non-doll news, I made shoelaces using this tutorial and they have gotten endless compliments! I highly recommend them.

Happy November!

Friends, Romans and Countrymen,

Lend me your ears and eyes. For the Girl Scout Journey Breathe my sister and I made a slide show on house plants and their effect on indoor air quality.
