Back to school...

My kids went back to school a few weeks ago, August 10th actually. Can you believe it is time for school already again?! My mom was here visiting and once again I tried my hand at sewing. Something about my mom makes me want to sew. hahaha I have seen the cute Pillow Case dresses on Etsy and figured I could probably make something like that. So, I did. Here's a picture of Shelby in her new dress for her first day of Kindergarten...

I didn't have a pattern, but I did use one of her other dresses to help me get the armholes right. This was my first time working with bias tape and I was a little nervous but I am extremely happy with how the dress turned out. And Shelby loves having new clothes and it was even better that mommy made it for her. I made her a little hairbow to match her dress and even dolled up some $1 flip flops. I have purchased some more fabric and plan on making her a t-shirt dress soon!

Yeah, it is early. They get out the end of May, around the 25th but they only go to school Mon-Thurs and have every Friday off! It is actually really nice.

Thanks! She's a handful...such a big personality and so, so smart!
