Don't hate me 'cause I'm crafty!!

Tim's mom and step dad are visiting this weekend for the holiday. His mom is teaching me a little bit about sewing and quilting. I found a cute dress pattern for Lilah and with a little help from Bev, made her 2 dresses. She didn't need 2 dresses, mind you, but she sure got 'em!!!

The pattern~








The material~







The evidence~









The finished product~











Here's dress #2 in the middle of being "created". It's not quite finished yet.









Bev taught me how to make these cute little quilted "mug rugs" (that's "coaster" for all of you non crafty folks). They are too cute and way easy to make!!!

Don't hate me because I didn't teach you to sew, my talented daughter. I am so impressed with you. Thank you Bev. It's a shame that Lilah hates it in that first pic. Guess she might as well get use to trying on things now that you're so talented (in the second pic).

Just so everyone knows we are setting up a sweatshop now to start mass production....You better get your orders in now cause these things are going to sell out fast!!!!
