All dressed up!

I have two projects to share with you that I finished up this week!

First off are a couple American girl dresses:


Look at that cute little bow in the back!


And the purple one has all that gathery goodness!


I don’t have a 18” doll in my house yet so I could not model them on anything but I am sure they will be awesome since I bought the patterns off of the Liberty Jane pattern site. You can find the pattern for the gathered dandelion dress here. You can find the pattern for the brown flower dress here. They were fun to make and Lorelei has requested some of her own. One day maybe!

Secondly I am sooo excited to show you what I did with some of my left over pieces of Simply Color. I made a few Anna Maria Horner feathers and put together a sewing machine cover for a friend for her birthday! If you haven’t seen this quilt top you must see it. Check out the pattern here.


If you are curious the ties were cut out at 10” by 1 1/4” then pressed in half and folded in. I placed them about 4” up from the bottom. Other than that I just made three feathers and squared them off and added a little extra fabric to make it long enough.

Hope everyone is getting all there Christmas projects done! I know I still have a few more to make and finish up. Good luck and Happy Sewing!

Your feathers are gorgeous. They look great in Simply Color. (Though, I have not seen them look anything but great in any fabric yet!) What a smart idea, making them into a sewing machine cover!

Those look great! The bow in back is such a cute detail. And I love all the color in your feathers. What a lucky friend.

Oh! I do so like your sewing machine cover. My friend just said that dust is your machine's enemy and this would make a lovely gift to replace the plastic cover she is now using! TFS
