4am: sick kiddo. Again. There’s a local school in the valley where a large amount of kiddos got Noro virus. I wonder if she picked it up from daycare or if its some other bug.  Happy Mother’s Day, yeah! Lemon water, rice, and tea for the little one for now. 

This weekend I intended on sewing a lot of clothes, but I got hung up on some of the patterns. I made two dresses from the Salina Dress pattern from Liberty Jane Clothing, a modified Peplum Top, a Baseball Tshirt, and a Veratility Dress (Forever18inches). Note: the Versatility Dress is too tight for little one’s Our Generation doll and my Our Generation doll. Tip: for lace sleeves, add a thin strip of interfacing to the edge and then hem. It looks much prettier. 

So, mom came up with an awesome idea to giveaway doll undies to any girl who brought her doll to our booth! I have chosen the basic shorts pattern by Liberty Jane Clothing. It’s an easy, fast, scrap buster of a pattern. I highly recommend it!

   
           

It’s very important to me that I am always learning. By learning new techniques, I am becoming a better seamstress. If I am always a student in life, then I will act less like a know it all! For I know nothing. 

This week I learning two new sewing techniques: welt pockets and sewing knit fabric. Now I am no expert, but at least I attempted these new things!  

Today I finished my first knit project! I used Pixie Faire’s tutorial on sewing a cardigan. It actually turned out really good. So happy!!!

  

In my last post I mentioned taking an online class called Couture Techniques offered by Pixie Faire. In one of the lessons, I learned how to make welt pockets. It was actually easier than I expected. As I said last time, it is worth taking!  I tried this technique on the Liberty Jane Skinny Jeans. Next time I think I will make skinny slacks! Adding the welt pockets should make the pants look oh so professional!

   

 

On May 30th, I will be attending the What a Girl Wants show at Expo Idaho! I am so excited. I have been slacking on sewing but I have a good handful of pieces. I am going to be signing up to partner with Liberty Jane Clothing so that I can sell clothes made from patterns found on Pixie Faire. Ah just so excited!

Last week I received an affirmation regarding my sewing. I entered into a comment contest to win a free seat at LJC’s sewing class Couture Techniques. I won! Sewing doll clothing is one of the memories and legacy I want to leave behind for my daughter and nieces. I watched all of the videos in one night! Wooo, so inspiring and educational. For $59, it is worth the class and course packet.

Today I made a pair of Skinny Jeans designed by LJC. I bought this awesome zebra striped fabric from a local fabric store 3 years ago and haven’t figured out what to make until now. 

Here’s how they turned out!
