Here is what this GrandMommy said, "Hi Aimee'........ I just love visiting your website and am having a blast making these sets from your patterns! I am completely convinced that my 'NeverBeforeEverTouchedASewingMachineHusband' could follow your patterns and create darling outfits for our granddaughters! Of course his choice of fabrics could be his undoing since a tent canvas with wide mouth bass burlap overlay Faith top probably wouldn't appeal to many little ladies. I could be wrong since my last trip to the mall revealed a group of neo-teen lassies with, honest to goodness, spinner bait earrings.......hehehe Anyway, I did want to show you my latest creation using the Faith top and Boutique Bottoms patterns created for our middle granddaughter. My daughter in law is so excited to try it on that little punkin and my daughter is anxiously awaiting a set for her daughter, our youngest granddaughter. Thank you again for your hard work in creating these beautiful, detailed and perfectly displayed patterns! They are a joy to follow and their creations a blessing to give."
Thank you, B, for just a joy of an email and blessing me with these pictures!!

Grace is my model for this pattern. It was her turn since Rose was the cover model for FAITH. Yes, I had to bribe her with some gum to finish these pictures but overall she did a great job!!!!! I know.....I am a little biased!
Ok, on a side note..... I finally made me a top this weekend!! Woo hooo! I decided to go ahead and make a matching Mommy Bubble Top and I have to say that after making it I cannot believe I actually thought I would look good in a BUBBLE TOP!!!!! What woman wants to add pounds with a Bubble shirt!!!!! :) And I used my good Ginger Blossom fabric. I should have known better! Anyway, it was fun to finally sew something for me and I know I want to do it again! Eventually I do want to make me a pair of Boutique Bottoms without the ruffles of course. One day!!

Ok, this last picture has absolutely nothing to do with sewing but as I was outside taking pictures of the skort and bubble top I thought you might like to see what I drive on a daily basis!! :) This is our family van and the car I drive to Walmart when I am by myself. HUGE!!!!! During the beginning of our marriage I used to tell Tommy that no way would I ever drive a utility vehicle. Because, you know, I was wayyyyy to cool for a utility vehicle!! Well, God showed me..... He let me know I do not drive a utility vehicle..... now it is just a commercial looking 10 passenger white church-looking van!!!!! LOL He does have a humor you know! I have no more pride!!!!! LOL If some of you are just finding this blog and don't really know me and why I would need such a beautiful big white van. You can visit me here! :)
Be blessed today! :)

It is here!!!!! I am so excited to have seen the UPS man walking to my door with this box in his hand! I love this Ginger Blossom collection fabric! I cannot wait to make this top which I have not named yet to go with the Twirl SKORT! It will also look adorable with a pair of Boutique Bottoms! I really want to say that Fat Quarter Shop goes above and beyond for their customer's online shopping experience! I have bought from several fabric shops and they by far have the best service and their attention to detail is awesome! Thank you, Kimberly!
Here is what Laura said, "Your pattern was perfect! Thank you again for the patterns."

Here is what KK said, "I just wanted to thank you personally for ALL the great patterns you have put out. I have (so far) purchased 3 and they are so EASY and SIMPLE to follow. I JUST started sewing a few months ago and I already feel like a pro. Your patterns aren't intimidating at all and make me confident to try harder stuff. I haven't learned so much. Thanks again and keep them coming!"

Ok, I have so many pattern ideas and definitely not enough time to get them finished in the time I want!! This is a sneak peak at my next sewing pattern! I know, I am still working on enlarging FAITH and some others but last night I finally figured out a cute cute top to go with the Twirl SKORT. I made one this morning while my smallest two decided that the elastic would make a great great toy to play with!! :) So during my cutting and sewing, I had Grace running around the table with elastic in hand as Elijah tried to get the end before it disappeared!!!!! Yes, it did get caught up in everything in its path! It wouldn't be a normal design sewing day without a little chaos at our home!
Anyway, this is my next one! It's only the first one I've done. I still have some more to test and tweak it a little but I already bought the cutest fabric for this one. I think you will be very happy with this one!

I have met so many nice and kind people through SewSensible that I now call friends. Melanie is one of those blessings SewSensible has sent me (even if it is via blog and emails! :) Today I received these awesome pictures of an outfit she made her daughter using the Boutique Bottoms sewing pattern! Melanie, I love them!!!!! She shortened the length and instead of adding the ruffle she put a brown band around the bottom for trim. It really made the pants stand out! And your daughter is a little princess! Thank you so much for blessing me today!

Currently I have 3 dress designs that I have drawn on paper that I hope to start soon. However, my first priority is getting my current designs into bigger sizes! I am working on the making FAITH bigger. I have half of it drawn out. The "His Heart for Orphans" needs my focus at this moment but as soon as I finish what needs to be finished with that I will complete FAITH bigger sizes and then enlarge my Boutique Bottoms and I would like to enlarge my Twirl SKORT.
In the meantime, if you have a custom Mommy, GrandMommy, or Aunt creation to show off, please don't hesitate to email it to me!!

Cute cute cute!!!!! Look how cute!! This is a blogging friend of mine, Leigh Ann, who created the most adorable Mommy creation for her little princess, Elle, using SewSensible's Twirl SKORT Sewing Pattern! Here is what this Mommy said, "I am in love with this pattern! Thank you so much!"
Thank you, Leigh Ann, for blessing me with these pictures! Elle is absolutely precious!! I love this pattern too! It just looks so cute on the little girls! And the best part is they can flip, turn, slide, ride bikes and never show their undies!
Also Leigh Ann has some great blogs to read. One that is very important to me is the Lifting Hands blog she has where you can go and pray for your children! I put these prayers and scriptures on my family blog weekly and it is just a great source and important role I take as my children's Mom to war for my children and see victories in their life! Thank you so much for that blog, Leigh Ann! She is also known in the blog world as Momma Roar. Visit her blog from here!
