Recent Sewing

Mostly, I have been making insulin pump belts for my children, and some to sell to raise money for JDRF, but I have sewn a few other things recently.

This is a dress I made for little girl to wear to her two diamond jubilee parties last week.  She adored it and had lots of lovely comments.  The top is a Makower cotton fabric with little crowns all over it, lined with red and white hearts fabric.  The bottom is a white cotton fabric with flags all over it.  The bodice is from my favourite pattern for little girl dresses Jocole Circle Flounce Dress, and the skirt is improvised.  The back of the bodice is fastened with red KAM snaps.

Big sister wore the Feliz dress that I made her a while ago.  She has nearly outgrown it, but still loves it.

My eldest daughter has claimed my Craftsy Block of the Month quilt as hers when I've finished it.  These are the blocks I've completed so far...

Plus this one, which I made this week, after consulting big girl about fabrics.
