Teaparty Sundress

From the unfinished bin. This one is sad and wonky. I used what I had on hand- one bodice of one size and a skirt of a different size.

Swoon Evelyn Tote

Swoon Evelyn. This one is tote sized. Perfect for a whole day out with little kiddos. I love this bag! There is an inside zip pocket and a recessed zip top. In our house, we were divided on the buttons. I'd love some input.

Evelyn from Swoon Patterns. This one is purse-sized and I LOVE it! I love this fabric and the size of the bag and so much about it. I cut out a leather panel for the bottom but was too chicken to use it. Maybe I'll make another and go for it.

bird swoon

Ethel, from Swoon Patterns. This was my second attempt and I was hoping this would be perfect since I had tried out the pattern first. This was supposed to be the `good` fabric. I am much happier with my first one. I ran into a few problems with the zip and the straps on this.

You may not be able to tell from this picture, but I don't make costumes. I enjoyed making the bonnet. This little girl wrote and presented a wonderful end of year Laura Ingalls Wilder.

This pattern is called Ethel from Swoon Patterns. It is a freebie on their site. It went together pretty easily. I used 809 pellon to interface all the pieces so it stands up well. I did not pin my side pieces together before sewing them, so when I finished I had to trim a quarter inch to even it up. This is also my first time making a welt zipper. The directions were pretty good and although mine is slightly crooked, it otherwise looks good. I'm very happy with how this turned out and I'd really like to make another someday.

Bubblegum Pinwheels

So, my first try at pinwheels seemed fun so I've made this cute bubblegum colored quilt top.

I totally LOVE the Swoon Pattern site. Her bags are really great! I totally dislike this bag and would give it to the first person to knock on the door.
