Bags and Dresses

So, my older daughter has been in town since right before the wedding.  She just left tonight, an hour ago.

I wanted to make her a dress from a pattern and fabric that she had bought (and cut out) several years ago.  I sewed the first couple of pieces together and remembered how difficult I find sewing clothing and decided that I couldn't get it done before she left.

She had also asked me to hem some pants and repair her bathing suit.  We decided that I wasn't the best person to hem the pants so she took them to the cleaners.  However, I did make the bathing suit repairs.

We went out today to pick the pants up from the cleaners and then went to a fabric store to try and find some fabric for a quilt I'm going to make for her best friend.  We didn't find any fabric that we liked, but I got some fabric to make her a make up bag similar to the ones I made for my niece's wedding in April.

The fabrics.

This is the pattern I used.  I think she is happy with it.  I think it looks nice.

I also got some rocket ship fabric.  I need to see if I can find the coordinating fabric on line.

p.s. I forgot to mention that I also sewed my finger.  crazy .. I thought I would slice it before I sewed it.

Very pretty. I really like the blue lining with the black and white exterior. Very glamorous.
