Peasant Dress Quick Cutting Tutorial and Pattern.

Hi! Things have been going pretty well here for the last 9 months or so. I have still been sewing and crafting a lot, mostly for friends and family. We are also making dresses for Project Yesu again this year. Each summer, Mallory goes to Uganda and she has a pillowcase dress drive to take dresses along with her for the girls.

Pink Lemonade First Birthday

My last baby is one year old.  Yeah, I am tearing up a little just typing that. Anywho… let’s move on now. Since it was our last (sniff, sniff) first birthday I went all out!

Paper Dolls Quiet Book Page

The paper doll page was also in Grace’s quiet book. I love this paper doll fabric and it is my older girls’ favorite page. I actually made these pages first and when I went to assemble the book I realized that some of the clothing was missing. They just would not leave it alone! You can read more about how I made this page HERE. It is inspired by THIS tutorial, but I find it easier…
