Helicopter Baby Bag

One of our college friends and his wife just had a baby boy. He works on helicopters so we thought this fabric would be perfect. I made a baby bag (as we call them) because it was my husband's favorite thing for newborns. It is a daddy-friendly outfit for diaper changes - no snaps, zippers or buttons! Welcome to the world baby Ryan!

Tiered Goldfish Skirt Set

This set was to help a little girl feel better about preschool. She and her mom loved the goldfish fabric and the little girl's favorite color is yellow. So I did my best to combine the two.

Bamboo Flower Girl Dresses

I was commissioned to make a couple of flower girl dresses. The bride's dress is made from bamboo silk, but for the little girls we decided that this bamboo woven would work better. The dresses are simple tie shoulder dresses. The tie back are attached to the dress between the bodice pieces using buttons. This was done to allow the tie backs to be changed is desired. The bridesmaids dresses are a sapphire blue. My customer was not sure if she would be able to get some of the blue fabric from the bridesmaids dresses. These dresses are so sweet in real life. It is hard to photograph a solid off white dress.

Sewing Machine cover & accessories

The is the last post about the Disney swap. Also on my partner's wist was a sewing machine cover and a pin cushion. She also loves Stitch from Lilo and Stitch. Here is the sewing machine cover I made. The appliqu├ęs were meant to be more like outlines with enough detail to determine who they are.

This was the first time I made a pin cushion - also and item on her wist.

Some fun pattern weights.

Mickey Shirts

Some more things from my Disney Swap. My partner had shirts similar to this on her wist. I have not tied dyed anything since high school (which was a long time ago). So I went looking online for a tutorial. I found this one. The shirts I purchase were 50% cotton and 50% poly which I thought would be a problem. But I soaked in a soda ash soultion first and then went ahead and tried it anyway. Well, it seems to have worked. I have washed them once and it did not run. I made a total of 6 shirts (4 for the swap and 2 for my children). I have been informed that I need to make some more for our October Disneyland trip.

Have you seen Heather Ross's new Mendocino line of fabrics. She has done a great job with this line. It comes in multiple colorways. Here is a twirling dress made with the blue/orange colorway. The bodice is just a peasant style and the skirt is a modified redondo.
