Sewing... and other stuff... :)

yup, I'm blogging about more sewing.  I've been thinking about doing a re-vamp of my blog someday too... if I ever get tired of sewing.  LOL!  Yeah that's not going to happen though.  Today I'm making dresses for who else, but my sweet baby K who si sitting my my lap complaining at the moment because I won't sit closer so she can drool on the keyboard... okay and she's teething so life is extra miserable. 

I've also been spending scads of time crocheting, hmm maybe I can insert a photo here and you can see what I'm talking about.  
Then if you like what you see, you might maybe consider wandering over to my Etsy shop & buying a few for yourself.  :)  Use the coupon code: FandF15 to get 15% off your order... and then you might get another coupon in the mail to use at a later date.  :)  I love these flowers, they work up so quickly, and do make babies look cuter too.  I gotta make a tri-color purple one to go with baby K's Easter dress (which I stashed away the day after Easter but finally found again yesterday).  Here's a look at that dress:

Okay so this isn't the best pic I ever took, but you get the basic idea.  I got the dress pattern from Leila and Ben's cute little shop & the sweet little pleated Mary Jane shoe pattern from Shwin and Shwin's blog.  I need to add some elastic to the sleeve hems (maybe shirr them), and I did not love the length of the dress, so will either add a 3 inch ruffle to the bottom or make a skirt to be worn underneath - am leaning towards the skirt idea, because it can be worn other times too.  I'll post a pic of the final finished project, maybe even on baby K.. if I can.   :)

Anyhow, the reason I'm blogging today is because I'm going to make one or two of  these, and maybe a cute shirred skirt or two, and then maybe a slip to go under baby K's dresses & skirts, if I have time that is & if baby K cooperates & has a nap.  I have the cutest fabrics to use plus a few remnants I've had for forever.
