We got a care package in the mail from my good friend Brooke yesterday. How exciting! She sent this adorable little purse for Ingrid. It's got a nice little bunny ribbon trim just in time for Easter. Ingrid has already dragged it around all over the house, stuffing it with her animals and dollies. Also included was a bag of gummy shamrocks, which Brendan ate in one sitting and then said "ugh, they didn't settle well." Yeah, you think? That's a lot of gummies in your belly...
And my girl sent me some scraps of fabric from her stash! I just love having friends that craft and sew. I get to send out scraps I know I won't use, they send me their scraps and we're all happy!
Brooke has an etsy shop and I am amazed at her talent! She makes different purses and bags and they are all so cute. I have my eye on a few of them.
And just to test myself, I tried sewing today with my hurt thumb. It worked much better than I had thought it would! I had this little 0-6 month size dress cut out and oh my god, after sewing 3Ts it looks so tiny! It looks like a doll's dress. Are babies really that small??
As usual, the more of these I make the better they get. I still have to figure out that neck, I always have to go over one or two parts to make sure both sides are sewn right. But I have three or so more to make for friends that agreed to be testers, hopefully by the end of that round I'll have mastered it and I can add some to the shop.
