Liz and I are busily sewing our brains out to share our fall "look book" collections in a week or so. But, in the meantime, we do have a few projects that have been sitting on the back shelves.
I am currently three outfits down and three to go, with bits and pieces in between like blind-stitch hemming (I don't know why but I dislike blind-stitch hemming, so I always leave it until the end, even with the nifty foot-- I am weird.)
But I am totally stuck at finding a girls' navy blue skinny belt for one of my dresses.....anyone seen lately? I am getting pretty desperate....it's what I have envisioned all along and I am at the point where I need to find one!!! (Anyone ever made a skinny leather belt before?)
In other news, enjoy a quick and easy project.....from this summer that I never posted.
We had a seventh birthday party around here a month or so ago. And the birthday girl decided she wanted to have an American Girl Doll tea-party luncheon with a few friends.
I wish I were great about big elaborate parties.....but I am not. I just do simple. So, we got out our fancy dishes and still had a great time with tiny sandwiches, tiny cupcakes and raspberry tea (which the girls didn't love all that much....).
We did do one simple crafts for all of our little dollies: American Girl Doll Tutus.
(I kind of feel silly even writing a tutorial for this....but I did.....because I am lame.)
1/4 inch elastic (I sewed 8.5 inches in a circle.)
20 pieces of tulle (I cut them 8 inches long which worked perfectly.)
And here's what you do...
