Pillowcase Dresses

So this summer I have been tapping into another creative side. I have pulled my sewing machine out of my closet and got back to work. I had a string of little girl birthday in May, June and July. I found a free pattern online and bought some fabric (I shop at Hancock Fabrics because they are the closest fabric store that always has sales and good prices) and got to work. Before I knew it, I was out of birthdays and 8 dresses done!

I could pretty much do those in my sleep and I'm ready for another challenge. So I am starting Lounge pants for my boys. I found that tutorial for pants and fell in love! Plus Jackson feels left out because all these girls are getting dresses and I haven't made him one yet. I keep trying to tell him dresses are for girls. So I bought some Transformers fabric and will make pajama pants to practice with the pattern.

But on the side, I will be making curtains because my house needs a little color! I started with the kitchen to practice.

Maybe I'm taking on too much at once but just I'm excited that I can do all this! I will have to learn to prioritize my projects.
