Fun Children's apron

This was a fun piece to make.  I used a vintage table cloth and linens.   I had to make my own bias tape and I am pretty happy with the results.

Sweet Pink

This sweet little dress was made using vintage linen table cloth and a linen hand towel. I have not sewn a dress for a little one in some time, it brought back memories of my little girls.

New shirt for me!!!!!!

I haven't sewed anything with a pattern in a long time and now I remember why.  They are a pain in the ass at times.  But I survived and I think I made the necessary changes to it I will use it in the future again. The pockets are my favorite part.  I used recycled fabric from my daughters old shirt.

A Little halloween fun!

My sister encouraged me to go to the dark side, this was a close as dark I could get for now but I love it. It kind of reminds me of my daughters when they were little and they had a cat. That poor cat never had a chance.  The piece is full of vintage finds, and I waxed over the top of it.
