I am suppose to be sewing my blouse for the contest but it is pretty daunting. So, I took a detour and did something quick and easy.
It's an easy dress with very few pieces. It also allowed me to use up some of the material in my stash.
I have to work on the hem but other than that it was an easy day job.
I also took a distraction to work on another blanket for my niece. Now that she is crawling around she finds everything possible in the carpet. So I decided to sew something for her to crawl on. I found this fat quarters pattern at maidenjane.blogshot.com/2012/07/big-beach-blanket-tutorial.html
I had coupons from Joann's that I used to buy 4 quarter sets. I used my serger to connect them and I love it. It will be a go to blanket pattern as I am not a quilter. I will be using padded quilting on the back instead of canvas because she would not be using it outside.
These were great distractions but I have to get focused. There are so many pieces to the blouse but I purchased really good shirting to use. Once finished I will take a stab at another pants pattern to go with it.
That's all just wanted to update on my progress for the blouse...looking or support and motivation.
