Simplicity Dress

For several weeks I have been working on making a dress. I used a Simplicity Sew Easy pattern and light pink fabric with a pink and red pattern. The dress has a v neck and high waist with a tie in the back. Sew Easy is a very misleading name to give a pattern, it had a lot of gathering and my Mom had to come help me with attaching the baffling sleeves. I have the dress a size to big but it seems to work anyway. Here is a view of the front:

And a view of the back with the tie:

I think there are some pictures of me wearing it but I will have to track them down.

Baby Stuff

Last weekend I went to my friends baby shower. I made a flannel blanket and two bibs. I thought I had pictures of the blanket (made back in about March) but I don't and here is the only picture I managed to take of the bibs. They were very cute though and well received.

New Purse

Recently I decided that I wanted to get a new and slightly larger purse. I looked in the store but didn't really see anything I wanted. Next I went to to see what I could find. One shop that I liked was the Cotton Candy Boutique. She has a large variety of styles and will also custom make your bag with the fabrics you choose from what she offers. I liked Bag 113 Birds, Birds, Birds. I ordered my bag a little over a week ago and it arrived today. I really like it, its a great size and the fabrics are beautiful. I highly recommend shopping on Etsy and supporting people who are crafting their own projects! Here is a picture of my new prize:
