Now is the time to comment on our blog to win your choice of the fabulous bags we have made this week. The only one we are not offering in the giveaway is the pillowcase backpack, because it is made of sentimental fabric. If you link to our blog, let us know in the comment section and we will put your name in twice!
I didn't have the heart to make the bamboo bags without my sewing buddy today, but I made 5 (gulp) Sandi Henderson Peasant Dresses today - one for a customer, one for Lilly, who immediately demanded one exactly like it, two made out of soft knit for nightgowns, and one for July 4th. I just have the shirring left to do tomorrow. I was petrified to try the shirring, but my customer really wanted this one dress, so I tried it....it was easy and fun! I used this great tutorial from Sandi Henderson. I highly recommend her patterns, even for someone new to sewing. Her directions are great, and her patterns are just so stinking cute. The apron knot dress above is an example of her designs.
And by the way, it is exactly...completely....half way til Christmas today. Get cracking!
