I have a very busy few weeks ahead of me and several projects to complete. Next week will mark my Granddaughter's 3rd birthday and we will be celebrating this coming weekend with a Very Hungry Caterpillar themed party. I will be making her a dress to wear to the party, along with the thank you gift bags, plus her birthday cake. You can expect to see future posts with details.
The following weekend, a very special friend will be getting married and I will be making her wedding cake, (actually, she is having cupcakes) plus the groom's cake. Expect to see a post on this too.
I am also planning on making my dress to wear to her wedding. I will be attempting to make the Vintage Vogue 8728 pattern reprint you see here.
Casey of Elegant Musings sewed this dress up last year in a beautiful cream jersey. You can see her post here. I wanted something a little more dressy for wearing to the wedding so I will be using a beautiful blue satin. However, I loved the idea of making it with a jersey fabric so I plan on making up another one. I will be sure to share how it goes with you guys.
While searching for fabric, I ran across this site, Pink Chalk Fabrics and thought I would share. This site is great if you are looking for quality natural fibers for quilting, sewing, or craft projects. They also sell patterns and I fell in love with this little guy.
He would be so cute for my granddaughter's party but I think I will have to save that project for another time. ~ There's only so many projects this Grandma can cram into the day.
