Newest Projects

Sorry I haven't blogged much the last week or so.  I've been trying to get as much done as I can before this baby comes.  I've been trying to spend more quality time with my daughter, clean, sew, pack bags, finish getting things ready for Christmas, and doctor appointments.

This week after my doctor appointment my daughter and I went to Joann's to get some material for a Christmas dress and had so much fun.  We spent over an hour in the store.  I found 3 very cute patterns that I bought and then we had to get material for each of them.
I started out looking for material for the Christmas dress first but just couldn't find what I wanted so we started looking for cute material for this outfit.  I went over to the fleece and walked through the material and finally found a few that I liked and let my daughter pick which one it would be.  She chose this pink material and I think it will be very cute.

While in the fleece department I decided to get the material for this cute pattern.  My husband and I found some very cute ducky slippers in the LTD Commodities catalog and they even make sounds when you touch the duckies.  We ordered them for her for Christmas so I thought a robe would go nicely with the slippers.  My daughter even picked out the ducky material without help from me.  It was cute and she will love it.

When I was done getting zippers and bias binding tape I finally pulled this pattern out again and started trying to decide what I wanted to do for the Christmas dress.  The selection was getting smaller and smaller at Joann's so I wasn't left with much.  I wasn't sure I wanted green and red and they had some cute black and grey material in the Christmas section but this snowflake material kept catching my eye.  I asked my daughter if she wanted snowflakes and she did so we picked it out and then the long process for me of finding the lining material.  I actually forgot the contrast material for the tie ends and had this pretty sky blue already in my stash.  The dress I am making is the one second one down on the right that has sleeves and a bow.  I still haven't decided on the bow yet.  I have the top done and after looking at all the measurements for all the material I forgot to look at the Tulle.  So tonight I will be going back for more Tulle to finish this adorable dress.  I am very excited.

Since I didn't have enough tulle today I worked on the bathrobe and it was so easy and fast that in the 1 1/2 hours that my daughter slept I almost finished it.  I decided I had better blog before I forgot again.  I will take pictures and blog about the finished projects as soon as I finish each one. 

I hope that everyone is ready for Christmas and enjoying this Christmas season.
