Summertime and the Livin is Easy…

But getting time to sew certainly isn’t! Not only have I developed a serious flower and vegetable garden addiction, but I feel beyond guilty staying inside on a gorgeous day with Liv. 

That said, I have been working on a few little things here and there. I’ve started my project for the handmade exchange with this amazing Riley Blake Ombre Dots fabric mixed with some gorgeous vintage fabric I picked up at a yardsale recently ($1 a yard! It was insane!).

I also revamped some of my earlier finished projects. My old sewing machine didn’t always create the neatest and tightest hems that my new machine does (and I’ve gotten a little handier myself). I’ve started doing some of my own embellishments and using contrasting thread, double and triple stitches along hems, and having a little creative fun. I did a little of that for a dress I’d made early on in my etsy days, and added a pair of bloomers for the gal who purchased it. Turned out pretty cool!

Oh and I made this romper for a friend! The blue with white ruffles was designed for her, but the cupcake pattern will be up in my shop very soon!
