Ok, here I go again!! I love change! I like my polka dot background but it is time for change. This was actually a premade template that has served me well this year. And recently I redesigned the covers of all my patterns to get more of a uniform look but over the past several months I just was not happy with them. They are ok but it does not really represent me and my personality. So..... the other night I was ready to design another cover and here it is! I really love it! It totally feels fresh and fun and happy! What do you think? Eventually I hope to get my blog and website to match. This is all part of my 2009 plans for SewSensible.

Twirl SKORT Skirt Sewing Pattern and Boutique Dress Top Sewing Pattern, Faith Double Layer Dress Top and Boutique Bottoms Sewing Patterns!
SewSensible's Twirl SKORT Skirt Sewing Pattern
SewSensible's Boutique Dress Top Sewing Pattern
How exciting are these pictures and how cute! This is from an awesome "beginner sewing" Mommy; however, I believe I can't use the "beginner" word anymore with her!! L, your outfits are awesome and so cute and I know you are having so much fun seeing your precious little girl wear your Mommy creations!! Awesome!! Awesome!!
If you are a Mommy who has never sewn but you have a sewing machine still in the box somewhere in your home or you have it out of the box but only used it for pillows or curtains then take the next step and make an outfit for your daughter or niece!! All of my patterns are designed with the beginner in mind. If you have to pick just one to boost your confidence then I suggest SewSensible's Boutique Bottoms sewing pattern as the very first one. I am here for you if you have any questions while sewing. Just email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you have an Awesome Mommy, GrandMommy, Aunt creation you would like to "show off" then don't hesitate to send it to me at the email address above!! They ALWAYS bless me!!

And here is what the other Mommy said, "My daughter wore it to her preschool today and I had many ooohhhs and ahhhhhs over it. I am a beginner and I do mean beginner and I thought it turned out great! Thank you so much for what you do!! I am also an adoptive mom. Many blessings to you! K"
Thank you both, L and K!! Love love the outfits and thanks for sharing that you too are Moms who know the blessings of adoption! Your children are adorable! We had our quarterly Adoption Support Group fellowship yesterday and it is always a blessing to gather together and celebrate the way our families came to be! Thanks again for the pictures and the super kind words!
And I really can't understand why I am hearing so many women don't like Sarah Palin?? Everybody I talk to loves her. I am excited to see her as John McCain's running mate! And about Joe the Plumber. My cousin wrote a post about this scenario that I found so interesting. You can read it here. And then there is VoteSmart website where you can get the facts on all candidates.
Again, I know this is controversial and I know some of you get online and read craft blogs to get away from the stress the world has but I just cannot stand back and not say anything. I am very passionate about being prolife.

TWO PARTS TO THIS POST:
Here is another awesome Mommy creation using SewSensible's FAITH Double Layer Dress Top sewing pattern. And this is what this Mommy said, "Hi there, my name is C. I am in Sydney Australia. I bought your pattern a little while ago and I finally plucked up the courage to give it a try. Having never been taught to sew, I thought I'd make a real mess of it. I surprised myself. I'm really proud of myself, I can't believe I really made this! My baby girl T is almost 10 months old. Here are some photos of T modeling my creation. As you can see I made the front pink and the back blue, she loves lots of colour. I hope you like it. T is our first baby and I love being a SAHM now. I was a lawyer before and I thank God for our blessing because every day is a joy! Now I am going to keep on sewing, I love it! Thank you for giving me the confidence to try this new hobby."
Wow!! Thanks so much for the pictures! And I do love it..... especially all the beautiful colors and your little girl looks so sweet and adorable in your creation!! And thank you so much for the kind words.
Every picture I get and all the emails all of you send makes the time I put into SewSensible so much more than just selling patterns. What an honor it is to be a small part in adding to you and your daughters and/or granddaughters relationships/lives!! What a blessing! May God bless each and every one of you. May He multiply your talent and may your children feel the love you put into each outfit as they wear it!
I love fabric!! And I especially love to shop for it!
L, thank you so so much for the pictures and most of all for the kind words!! Isn't it just awesome to sew an outfit for your child!! You think you are excited to see it now, just wait until your little girl is wearing this outfit! You will find yourself staring at her all day!! LOL
Now for all you Mommies out there who are reading this and are saying I cannot do this..... I believe you are wrong! If you know how to sew a straight stitch and the very very basics of sewing on a sewing machine (like turning it on and threading the needle!!) then I believe you can sew with SewSensible Boutique Sewing Patterns!! The rewards are great!! Come on, give one a try!! I am here for you while you sew if you have any questions. You can email me at email@example.com or go to my website http://www.sewsensible.net/ and leave me a comment with your question.

Remember, if you want your dress top longer you can always add to the length of the dress panel. I actually changed the dimensions slightly so it would not be so long so if you are making one and it did not come out as long as you wanted then this is the reason so just simply add a couple inches to the lenght which is always the first number in the measurement/dimensions!

Of course one pattern can lead to more ideas. Last night I drew out some of those ideas. I do love the skirts but love the idea of having shorts underneath more so three of my designs I drew were different versions of skorts. I am excited about them and that will be my focus for the next month. So get ready to see more skort patterns and their pictures on this blog in the coming month!! Now I get the fun of surfing the internet for some fabric collections!
And if you think Embroidery Applique' is something you will not be able to do then think again! You don't have to have an Embroidery Machine to do this. You Can Make This has a Sewing Machine Applique' section with some Easy Applique' ebooks to get you started! 2009 is looking like a pretty busy year for sewing some custom outfits!! I can't wait!!

The back of the Applique' Apron Skirt
another Applique' Apron Pantaloon. I changed the dimensions of the apron from the one above. The Embroidery Design is SewSensible's Applique' Monkey that will be available soon.
And you know, in today's economy, you can make cute custom dresses and outfits with that boutique look for less than what it costs at stores today!! And your children or grandchildren will be dressed in one of a kind designs!!

C, love love the outfit!! I know your winter months are around the corner, so don't forget you can put a long sleeve shirt underneath or a peasant top for a great look as well! And let A where some boots with it and it will give it some more pizzazz!! Thanks so much for sending these pictures!! Love you!
If you have an awesome Mommy or GrandMommy or Aunt creation that you would like to share with me, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org! They always bless me!

Thanks so much, S!! Beautiful outfit! I just love the apple print coupled with the red polka dot fabric and the rick rack accents make it so dainty!! Happy "1st" Birthday, M!! You look adorable in your birthday outfit!
Below I took a quick video to show how the Applique' Apron Pantaloon will look while walking. Of course, Elijah wants my attention so you will hear our conversation with it! :)
