As I sit here typing I can hear Halley singing songs about God in her bed.
My heart is so happy.
Looking through last year's Easter pics, I can't believe how much has changed.
My blog was just a baby,
we just got a Mac,
I was teaching myself how to sew with patterns,
Halley used to wear big huge bows,
Lulu was so little,
Janey wasn't even created.
I look forward to pulling out the Easter baskets and skirts again, as well as making Janey something tiny and matching, as we celebrate Jesus' resurrection.
I made Easter baskets using this Sew Sensible pattern. It is more of an intermediate level project. I measured and cut it out wrong the first time, but then I figured it out. Might have to do with my lack of paying attention to instructions. The final product is super cute and holds a ton of eggs. I dare you to give it a try.
These skirts were made using this ruffled skirt tutorial from Grand Revival Designs. After all of the patterns I have tried in this past year, this still is one of my favorites. It will really push you to learn gathering and when you are done I think you will be really proud. I added the ruffles to make it more twirly. What girl doesnt' love to twirl? I made both of them a little big, so they can be worn again this year for the community egg hunt. I normally not really into character clothing, but once in a while an exception has to be made.
