I was given a rooster at Quilt retreat back in March. I just love my little rooster. Later this week I am helping with Vacation Bible School. I have a spinner coming to demonstrate! I thought that I would give her the larger rooster. I am also hoping to get a mug rug done for her.
Lola….decided that she wants to sew!!!! She found a pattern at Hancock’s. She was hoping for a cute t-shirt dress, we ended up with a fitted sundress. Now, let me first say, I can sew….blankets that aren’t ever actually square or rectangular and blankets that only lay flat after of the puckers are quilted out of them. I am also good at making pj pants that never step foot outside of the house. Lola asked if I was as excited about this project as she was….”No, I am just nervous and anxious.”
Here is the top bodice….Look at all those pleats. This is the other side of the bodice. The pattern is Simplicity 2250. I am sure that all will be okay. God has dropped a great seamstress I know in my life twice now. We saw her 1st on the day at the store…this was great in helping picking out lining and interfacing. I saw her again today at Wal-mart. I haven’t seen her more than 3 times in the last few years. Now I have seen her twice in 2 weeks (devine intervention).
Lola’s Moment: I just would like to add that I am not intending to become a “sewing fiend”, I just want to make something that no one else has. Be prepared to see pictures of my future epic masterpiece! xo Lola!
I have started on the quilting for the table runner. The light squares are done. I am having trouble with the tension. The light squares have light thread on both sides, and you can’t see the polka dots. The red and dark squares I have ripped out twice now.
