Pillowcase dress

I have been enjoying making pillowcase dresses I decided to make some to sell, and some to send to my friends with little girls :)

This is Chloe in her very own "pillowcase" dress.  I didn't actually use a pillowcase, I just used a piece of fabric.  And by the size of it on her you can tell that it's a little big, but this way she can grow into it :) I added a pocket to it, I know I love pockets :)  And of course some eyelet ruffle at the bottom, cause what little girl doesn't like a little lace.

Pillowcase dresses part 2.

 I told you I bought more pillowcases :) I made 3 more dresses tonight :) I would have made more but I don't have enough different ribbon!

I think I might make up a tutorial on these tomorrow. (of both types!)
 I am not sure if you can tell but this first one is actually a little different than the others.  I used a slightly different pattern, and cut arm holes.  I like it too :) just a different feel.  I also think a serger is a lot easier for this kind of pattern.

This is the same type of pillow case as above, just added lace :)

Pillowcase dresses for little girls in Haiti

 Today I got together with some friends from church and we made these cute dresses out of pillowcases for little girls in Haiti!

I enjoyed it so much I stopped at Salvation army on my way home and bought some more pillowcases so I can make some more :)

Newest baby quilt!

Newest baby quilt I have finished.  I am putting this one for sale in my etsy shop for $30.  I actually made the top last summer, and finally got around to finishing it :)

I didn't add batting to it, Just a fleece backing so it's not too heavy for a baby.
