I finally got the gumption to try making some clothing. I thought I would start with baby clothes because they're small and take a whole lot less fabric to make in case I screw up. I texted a good friend that made our mutual friend a baby dress that was absolutely adorable. I wanted to know where to find the pattern. She kindly texted me the website: Sew Sweet Patterns. Very easy directions, simple to follow, and lots of sizes represented.....REALLY CUTE patterns. This is the website for me as they are all easy patterns. I immediately purchased four patterns and downloaded the instructions. The next day, I was cutting material and sewing the dress I chose together. It took only four hours to make the Harper Dress. I think it turned out really cute and not too bad for a first try!

Feeling confident, I tried another pattern from Sew Sweet Patterns: The Katelyn Romper. This is the first time I made anything with pants, so I admit I was a bit intimidated. However, I am really happy with the results.

Since I had a bit of time today, I used it to make a new quilt top. This pattern I found inside the Modern Quilt Workshop book:
I was truly inspired by the cover design: The Zipper Quilt. I loved the pretty mix of blues and greens. Plus, it uses a lot of scrap pieces in my stash! Here is the quilt top:

Until next time.....Happy Crafting!!!!!
