So last week was pretty busy around our house. Stinkerbell went to see the Disney Princesses at our local library. She was fine at first. Then she was not at all interested in standing/sitting anywhere near them for photo ops. So I only got one picture and well, it’s not that great. Also, I can’t find it on the computer right now so I’ll have to post it later. When we got home she fell in the driveway and skinned her knee. Poor girl boo hooed like mad. It was our first skinned knee. I think she cried more than when she knocked her tooth out.
Anyways, I did manage to make Stinkerbell a new shirt and a new dress. The shirt is the Farmland Blouse from Babes of Sweet. I love all of her patterns that I have purchased so far. They are definitely beginner friendly, filled with photos showing and detailing each step, and well, just plain adorable. Here is how mine turned out:
I also made her a new dress from a pattern that I purchased from Carolina Fair Designs. It turned out okay, but I think I’ll just line the next one instead of using bias tape. Or maybe I’ll just suck it up and use bias tape. I can only get better at it by practicing. Who knows. I guess we’ll see. It’s a very simple dress to make, less the bias tape. Here is how mine turned out. Stinkerbell refused to model it so…. Just ignore the yucky ironing board it’s on. I totally need to recover that thing….
