I did a lot of sewing last week - thank you Jesus! I am working on a new pattern so I have made four dresses to get it just right. I will share the others later this week. This is Molly's strawberry dress. She loves the strawberry applique!The dress ties over the shoulders and has a little curved bodice. The ruffle you see at the bottom is her little slip - just too cute! I really love how it turned out. This will make the perfect summer dress for the girls. Oh, and guess what! You can get the strawberry design for free! I am hoping to have this dress pattern in my shop as a download in a couple of weeks (let's just see if that really happens in the given time frame). I will try to have sizes 1-7 available. To get your freebie strawberry click HERE (or on the word tutorials at the top of the page), click add to cart (pattern is free), follow the prompts to download. I put this on a T-shirt too and it was super cute. I think it would be great on a bag too, or a skirt! We sure have had a lot going on lately! Maddie got her ears pierced after begging her Daddy for an entire day. She didn't cry she just whimpered a little until we put the mirror in front of her, then she gasped and said " Mama! Wook, they pix me earwings!". Molly and Tim drove the tractor last week. Start'em young! The chickens got promoted to the yard. Yes! No more chickens in the house! Are we up town or what!? I feel so high falutin! Molly lost another tooth. Tim caught his first fish. Maddie has been officially promoted to the big girl bed, and is lovin her life! No more gymnastics to get in bed! My Granny got Internet so she now reads my blog. Told you we were uptown! Granny got a Mac! Now Paw Paw wants to get on EBay. I'm kinda proud that he knows what EBay is. We got the opossum that has been getting in the trash, he sure was a mean looking sucker! Those things freak me out, he looked like a big rat. UUUUGGGHHHHH! Lily and Iris are sitting up, not for long but they are doing pretty good. My kid's drawers no longer have winter clothes in them. Thanks Kim! She came over last week and cleaned out the drawers while I sewed for her little girl. That was the best trade EVER. I made two outfits and a dress. We had a family girl sleep over (I will be posting about this later.), and a family reunion. I had such a good time! Tim is riding without training wheels!!!! You have never seen a four year old so proud! He can even take off without a push. Well That's all I can think of right now! Let me know what you plan to do with that strawberry. I would love to see pictures of what you all make with the freebies. I would love to post some on the blog. If you want to participate send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
