Cleaned my room

My sewing room has been so out of control and I haven't wanted to be in there and do any work. I finally cleaned most of it up yesterday and found my machine under piles of stuff. I am missing it so I am going to dig out one of my many UFO's and do some sewing so hopefully I will have something for you guys to look at. Now I just need to figure out what I want to work on.....

Easter dress

I went to joann''s yesterday and bought some cute fabric for Presley' easter dress that I just decided to make the other day. This pink fabric is just adorable and it was in the clearance section for 2.00 a yard so I bought what was left and figure it will get used for something. I am such a fan of pink and have a hard time resisting anything that is pink! I can't believe how fast Easter crept up and it is even later this year. So I have to whip it up quickly today I need it done asap so I can get her pics taken in it and send out a Easter card for everyone. I have been getting all my cards out either late or on the day of the holiday lately. Well at least they are getting in the mail so that is an accomplishment.

well I finished her dress. It turned out cute. I used this pattern but altered it a little because I wanted more of the bottom to be the pink material. That material was a little more sensitive to work with but I just love the look of it. It is so shabby and romantic. Not that I was going for a romantic look for a 2y.o. but I couldn't think of another word to describe it. I love the look of the sleeves I just left the edges raw I think they will be fine. I am so excited to see it on her after her nap. Now I just have to wait until the chicks arrive on monday and hopefully get a cute pic of her and the chicks for a Easter card. I am sure I'll have to wash it after the photo shoot with chicken poop all over it!!!! Oh well clothes are meant to be worn and get dirty.
