My Obsession

I've got the bug and I've got it bad.

All I want to do is SEW! That's right -- ME! I want to sew. There I said it. I find myself constantly perusing the internet for fabric or tutorials. It's really become an obsession. Actually, not an obsession --- a passion. I love it! I love how pieces of fabric come together to make, as of late, dresses for Ava. Eventually, I will attempt boy clothes. In the meantime I will continue to outfit my daughter in Mama Originals.

Here's the most recent.

Up until now, I've just been making sleeveless dresses and putting cute little shirts on under them (how many white short-sleeved shirts does one little girl need? ALOT!). But, this is my first attempt at sleeves. And I must say, not nearly as scary as I anticipated. I learned a few tricks for the next time around, but overall, not too bad.

I have another dress I hope to work on this weekend (assuming I get all caught up with orders). And then it's on to Christmas presents. Ava loooooves her kitchen. Lately, we've been playing restaurant alot. So, I found several tutorials for making felt food and hope to have said food under the tree Christmas morning. I better start now.

Wow! Way to go on the sewing! That dress is adorable, and the little girl in it too. :)
