My hands hurt!!

I've been a busy, busy bee this week. I cranked out an outfit and three shirts for two local ladies Monday and Tuesday. Since my craft area was a complete mess I kept on going. Alison and I found the cute polka dotted material at Hobby Lobby. We made the girls matching dresses on Wednesday. Don't you love the huge ric rac? I do! Alison made a hibiscus shirt last week. As promised I made one too. Hers is a bit cuter due to a brown shirt, but this blue one is way too fun as well. I made my first ruffled skirt today. It was not as hard as my mind made it out to be. All I had to do was adjust the stitch length and sew a loose stitch across the top of the ruffled part, then pull the bobbin thread to gather the ruffle. The shirt was a problem! I wanted something simple but matchey since the fabric is so busy. My solution? I ripped out the bib of the shirt, added the fabric (which I gathered with elastic to create a gathered effect), and sewed the bib back on! I am tired! One more outfit to go...I am so excited to finally get to my apples and pear fabric. Maybe tomorrow my craft area will get some much needed cleaning.

Holy cow you are cranking out super cute things! I need to get started now that Malisia is out of school.
