Bread Basket

I am part of a spring swap and I made this little bread basket for my partner. I really need to make us a new one as ours is made with Christmas fabric and we use it year round!
When you untie the ties it lays flat! It worked wonderfully in my small kitchen.
I actually sale the pattern on esty. It has a darling Easter version with a handle.

Simple dress

I decided the baby needed more clothes for this summer. I started with this, which I though was going to be a long top.

This dress was made with Simplicity 2625. I fell it has to much room in it. Not what the picture showed. I may go back and add some ties. I am working on a little hat to go with it. I do have enough stripe to make pants which was my intentions, but this shirt turned out to be more of a dress and I don't think the pants will be needed. I may need to move down a size if I make it again.

Just the beginning?

Well I have decided to start blogging. Mostly about my sewing adventures. I am hoping this will inspire me to get more projects done, maybe cut down on the stash! So if you want to see what I am up to just check back!
