Our church is planning a mission to Haiti next month so several members have been making little dresses for Haitian girls. I couldn't resist the need to get involved, so today with some old scrap fabric (I have no idea where it came from) and a simple handmade pattern (I received from church), I put the Man in charge of the boys and started ironing, cutting and sewing. And within an hour and a half I made this.
Too cute, I know. LG tried it on for ME, but he didn't like it so I thought it best to not take his picture.
And while working with a pattern something I've never done before, I discovered a pin cushion would be useful. So instead of purchasing one, I decided to make one and with the help of the Internet I made this adorable pin cushion.
My embroidering lacks polish but I still thinks it's too cute and perfect.
I'll be making two more dresses this week and on Friday a couple of friends and I are hosting a sewing circle at church to make more dresses. I'm 'sew' excited.
Any of you been crafting? I'd love to see what you've made!
