Got An Itch....

I recently started getting an itch to sew some more. I found these two cute patterns on line. One for a 'Little Boy' tie for Parker...



The back of the tie is corduroy. It still needs to be washed to get more of the 'raw' edges, but I washed all the colors this morning so it will have to wait :)

The second pattern was for this cute cute cute dress for Taylor Jane! Loved it so much I made two!









The dress pattern is suppose to just be a free flowing dress that can be worn as a tunic when it becomes too short. When I tried on the first dress on my girl it was a bit too baggy so I un-picked it and added the ribbon to tie in the back.

I can't wait for Sunday so my kiddos can be all dressed up in something I made them!

My second 'itch' is to learn more about photography. The other night Jason & Christy brought Madison over for pictures so I stepped in and took a few...




Troy took this one, but I thought it was cute (and I was the one that purchased the angel wings...)


My brother from Utah was also in town this weekend and they wanted family pictures. I got a few that turned out good, but Troy needs to edit them.....maybe someday I will get the itch to learn Photoshop better for pictures and not just digital scrapbooking. :)

Very very cute! I LOVE the material of the dresses. Nice pictures too! Photography is so frustrating to me. I took some classes with my sister-in-law this past summer and still haven't a clue as how to run my camera. But it is fun trying! Not so fun when everything turns out blurry! Good luck with your "itch". By the way, thanks for the Sew, Mama, Sew link. I have really come to love that site.

Seth and Katie said...

Wow! Those dresses are so dang cute! You are so good at everything. I wish you lived closer so you could show me some of your tricks. I’d totally love to learn to do digital scrapbooking. And Madison is growing up so fast. She is just so cute! Those pictures are adorable. I love the one with the wings. When I have a baby, I’m coming to visit so you and your husband take pictures for me.

That was Sayda, not Aubrey. She has her own blog and I forget to change the google account. So frustrating!

It's me again! As soon as my niece has the blogstore all set up I will let you know. It might be next week

Alisha!!! I can't even tell you how excited I was to see your new sewing projects! I love it when you start doing sewing stuff like that because it inspires me (not like it takes me anywhere, but it's a start) AND because you seriously make the CUTEST things ever. Oh, I just love it. Keep it up ok! ;0)
