I spent some time getting to know my new machine this weekend. Up first were a few birthday treats for a lovely young lady in our homeschooling group…
Her mom asked if I could make her a few things for her 11th birthday. She found a picture on-line of the style that she wanted and we went off of that. We picked out the fabric together on our little shopping excursion a few weeks back.
Unfortunately with all the clouds we’ve had the last few days, it’s impossible to get a picture that comes anywhere close to representing the true color of these fabrics.
She’s going to be seriously adorable in this with her long blond hair and bright blue eyes. I played a little with some of the embroidery stitches to decorate the waistband.
Then, because I had extra fabric and extra ribbon, I whipped up this little kerchief to go with it.
I’ve got a couple more projects for her in the works, also a couple of house projects either recently completed or in progress and I might just have to try to sew a little something for a certain little fella in my own home, with a birthday coming up, oh, so very soon. So, far, it looks like my machine and I are going to be very happy together!
