I haven't disappeared!

I've just realised how long it has been since I last posted on here. I'm a rotten blogger!

I still haven't finished my YCMT quilt, although I do now have all the materials to finish it.

The latest project was a dress for Baby. I decided to try the "Ellie's Twirl Dress" from YCMT. It was finished last weekend and turned out very well.

Here's Baby modelling it.

My 6-year-old daughter and I also started making hairbows recently. Here is the first attempt. We sewed this one onto a little ponytail band for Baby's hair.

This one was glued to an alligator clip which I covered with the checked ribbon, and gave to a friend for her gorgeous little girl.

Here is Baby wearing a bow we made to match her new dress. It has the same button in the centre as the button on the back of the dress.
This is my favourite, modelled by big sister...

... and baby sister.

This week it's the school holidays and I've promised my 6-year-old that we'll make her a dress together. She loves to sew and is very excited. We've downloaded the "Perfect Dress" pattern from YCMT and worked out the measurements.
