Unfortunately, I got so frustrated searching for the brown fabric, that I never did cut the project out. But that's okay, because I used my time this weekend to finish several UFOs. I finished a New Look blouse that I made for myself a year or two ago. All it needed was button holes and buttons. Then I whipped up the Hello Kitty dress that I blogged about in a couple of earlier posts. I'll have pictures of those two projects soon.
I also finished Emma from Children's Corner:
It's a little bit rumpled in this picture- Savannah wore it to school today. I used a quilting cotton with kittens all over it. The collar and waist seam are piped with pink mini-piping and the dress is fully lined- also in pink. The collar is white pique. It's kinda hard to see in the photo, but I put the buttons on in "pairs." I think it added some interest to the front. I really like this pattern but I've made it twice now and I'm ready to move on to something else. It goes up to an eight, though, so who knows? I might decide to make it again next year.
I'm hoping to get my dress and shrug cut out tonight. That is if I can find the scotch tape to make the FBA! Angie, you know what I'm talking about!
