Ohh How I have missed you!
My Hubby went fishing Friday night so out of pure boredom I pulled out my machine! and oh how I have missed her! Good old Walmart was having a bolt sale and I found this striped fabric. I got 5 yards of it for 5.00. Can't beat that. So I have like a million ideas to make with it. But first up was a dress for Moo. Although she looks extremely unhappy in these pictures, she absolutely loved the dress.
To make it I just measured her bust and length and then cut the fabric one and half times her width and then to the length that I wanted. Then I hemmed the edges and used my favorite elastic thread for the top and the middle. After I took about 2 inchwides strips and braided them for the straps.
You can't see the dress too well in these pics, but I LOVE the way it turned out. I'm debating if a 28 year old mama would look good in one! And of course every dress needs accessories so I made a head band too. Of course we had to have a flower headband but then I wanted a giant ruffle one too. And I get what I want so I made one! :) For the headband I used satin and wrapped it around a plastic headband hot gluing along the way.
I didn't attach the ruffle to the headband because now I can interchange flowers and such! also the ruffle would work without a head band and maybe you can even get a little freaky and embellish a shirt or something!! Anyways it felt WAAAYYY too good to be sewing again! I need to do that more.

Where am I???
I'm really not sure what my deal is I am a hit and miss blogger! I love to blog and craft but I go in these weird phazes where one minute I love it and and can't wait to post what I have been working on and then next minute if I see another blog I will probablly throw up!! I know I'm weird. I have never claimed to be normal though so I guess it's ok. We recently put our house on the market and between that, and summer I have had ZERO time to get extra crafty let alone bloggy. But lately I have been having the itch to create! I have a few projects up my sleeve that I have been dying to try so maybe I'll be back!!
