July Projects in the works!

Hello Everyone!
Can you believe July is half over? Time is flying by! Wow! I have been busy sewing a few things that I thought I would share. First I made a cute little skirt to go with some 4th of July tees I had picked up. I tested this pattern for Whimsy Couture and it is now available in her Etsy store on sale no less! Click here to see it! Excellent directions and pdf....definitely recommend it! I loved the shirring makes the skirt nice and stretchy and comfy at the same time!

 You use elastic thread in the bobbin and just start stitching row and it gathers it for you.
 I made a belt with the coordinate and used some ribbon for the belt loops:
 I bought this blade for my rotary cutter but it can only cut one layer at a time :( And when I cut fabric I am often working with two or four layers.
 I ended up just buying a new pair of pinking those things! I cut then zig-zag all of the seams.
 Here is the finished skirt with my beautiful model, Brooklyn! She is looking mighty patriotic!!!

Perfect for going to see fireworks!

I have also switched over to making a few custom things for my wonderful customers. It really got started during a resell phase and after a few requests, I decided to sew for others.....finally. I have been sewing for my family and friends for years but now I am branching out a bit. Here is my Facebook page where I post all kinds of sales and updates. 

I absolutely love the Grace dress pattern by my friend Lisa of Funktional Threads. She is a fabulous seamstress and uber talented!!!  So she really inspired me to make a princess dress with all of the princesses that you can meet in the Magic Kingdom. So here it is:

I am currently offering it on my facebook page with a personalized drawstring bag!


Finally, I also have a few resells left including this Magic Kingdom Attractions Galore dress....which is also a Grace dress! It was worn Disney...
 And I really want to find another "home" for it so it can be shared and loved by another little girl!!! Here's a few more close-ups of it:

 Please check out Sewing Story Projects on facebook for more information!


So that is what I have been up to this month. I am also working on my quilt involves making 100+ rectangles!! I will have to take some update pictures.....going to work on it today. Hope you have a great week everyone!
