FAITH Double Layer Dress Top and Ruffled Jeans Sewing Patterns!

Here is another look at the upcoming FAITH Double Layer Dress Top Sewing Pattern. I tried a smaller top band and I just rather the look of a 2" top band rather than a 1" top band, so I am going to stick with my original design! I have also decide to add "how to" add ruffles to your jeans. The Ruffled Jeans will be an addition to FAITH. I will also offer a TWO Pattern Collection of FAITH and the Boutique Bottoms sewing patterns and another TWO Pattern Collection of FAITH and the Twirl SKORT sewing patterns.

I can just see this as a Disney trip outfit for the girls!!

Twirl SKORT Twirl Skirt!

Here is just an adorable Custom Creation I received through the night or is it the adorable "model"! Too too cute! It makes me want to make some more Twirl SKORTS for my girls!! If any of you want to show off your Custom Creation, please don't hesitate to email it to me at !! Thank you, J, for sending this picture to me. As I have said before, they really bless me!

New Sewing Pattern Coming Soon!

Here is another sneak peak at my next dress top sewing pattern that will be coming soon: the FAITH Double Layer Dress Top. I have started working on the step by step instructions and have decided to start naming my patterns. The next three dresses will be Faith, Hope, and Love. I will be designing FAITH to go up to size 10. I have gotten several emails asking for bigger sizes. The reason I only have size 6m - 6 years is because that is the size of my younger children and it is so easy to call them to me to measure. My plan was to make bigger sizes as my children grew but your request has prompted me to begin now.

I have not written the description yet for FAITH but I will say it is an easy dress pattern that will be great for a sewing beginner! I hope to have everything finished in two weeks!

Karen Capri Set and My New Sewing Pattern!

Well, goal accomplished today!! I was able take pictures of Grace in Nanoo's new sewing pattern outfit, the Karen Capri and Halter Top Set! So cute an on Etsy! Grace and Rose really enjoy the "picture" attention from Mommy. And I really enjoy the blessing of getting to take my daughters pictures! Be sure to visit Nanoo and see all of her sewing patterns that are available. She also has custom dresses and outfits in her Etsy shop.

I was also able to start my next sewing pattern!! Here is a sneak peak below!! I have several ideas about some dresses and this was the one I chose to do first. I hope to have it ready in the next month. And it is also designed so that the sewing beginner can use it!

Tutu's and Ties!

Tutu's and Ties!! That is the theme of Grace's 3rd Birthday Party that will be in two weeks!! The ties because my sons will not be wearing the tutu! It will be a pink, Princess, Tutu and Tie Party! Girly, girly!

Last night I went to Nanoo's house for our monthly sewing night. I made this tutu which still needs elastic in the waistband, Nanoo finished her Messenger bag purse, and Dina completed her son's fleece blanket! I would have to say that through all the chit chat we actually got some sewing projects accomplished!! The menu was fried fish poboys, sour cream and onion chips, lots of fruit, and Boston Cream cupcakes. Yum!! Today I am working on my next sewing pattern dress and will be taking pictures of my girls in Nanoo's latest outfit, the Karen Capri and Halter Top, which will be available soon!

Back from Vacation and Awesome Customer Creation!

Well, we made it back from Walt Disney World yesterday! I did not post anything about the trip because we wanted the trip to be a surprise for our children.....and it was!! I made the girls a Mickey outfit using the Dress Top sewing pattern. I already had them a pair of pants using the Boutique Bottoms. As soon as I download the pictures, I will post some of them! Last Wednesday, my husband and I picked up the older children at school. When we came home he sat all the children on the couch. He had a video recorder in his hand. They were so confused at why they were picked up from school early and why was their "PaPa" recording their every move right now!! He told them the vacation surprise and they.................... said nothing!!!!! They all had a blank look of confusion on their faces!!!!! You have to understand that five of them are 6 and under and our sweet 6 year old is special needs and the youngest is 1 year old. Our two older children, evidently, could not believe we were telling the truth!! We looked at them again and explained with lots of excitement that we were going to see Mickey and all his friends!!!!!!! Then the laughter and jumping came forth!!!!!!!!!! They got up from the couch and jumped and screamed and laughed!!!!! It was a great moment!

Disney was great!! Alot of work with seven children but my Mom came along and my husband had each day planned out minute by minute!! We even stayed the Magic hours in Magic Kingdom on the third day until 1am!! We are slowly getting back into our routine. I have relisted my sewing patterns on ebay and will try to educate myself on building my SewSensible website!

And in the meantime, I came home to see this beautiful custom outfit made by an awesome customer in my email inbox!! And what a beautiful model!!!

(Dress Top Sewing pattern and Boutique Bottoms sewing pattern)

Awesome Creations!!
