a little bit of magic

13 05 2009

i got a sewing machine for mother’s day
i threaded it this morning for the very first time
an hour later i am half way to clover’s first tutu dress
no pattern
just an idea, an old t-shirt, some left over curtains from our california house and remnant tulle from gemma’s craft bin…*


now it is a skirt and top and hopefully will become a dress for our trip to california. just need to figure out how to measure the little model… magic.

*you can’t really see the stitching so you will have to take my word for it that it is nice and straight and the layers are all sewn together (except for one side of the tulle as i may throw in some fabric flower petals first.

It’s so lovely! Especially since you used your curtains from California. Great work. I hope you keep it up. You’ve encouraged me to buy a sewing machine. I’ve been noodling the decision for months!
❤ to you all.
