I’ve been wanting to try sewing with knits for a long time now, but just never got around to it. I discovered a stitch on my machine that is specific for sewing knits, so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m so thrilled with the ease of it and excited with the results. We love soft jerseys and are flooded with ideas!
Here is our first item for our shop. I love the fresh blues and feel of this soft jersey. A simple dress for everyday, with an added ruffle detail around the arms.
Isabella came home from school and discovered it hanging up. She couldn’t get it on fast enough and wanted to model it immediately. Of course I needed to take advantage of her enthusiasm.
She loves it. I actually caught her kissing it.
If you love it too, it’s now available in our shop.
A little girl from Texas is turning 5 years old.
This is her party dress.
Her mom contacted us in search of the perfect dress to go with her Queen of hearts party theme. What a fun party theme! This is the print we found, and I think it’s just perfect for her special day.
Speaking of birthdays, I just purchased this gift for a 6 year old birthday girl last week. It’s a creative stencil set. You can mix and match head shapes, features, whiskers and snouts. So cute, I almost want it for myself.
This set is from Uncommon goods. I love this shop for its unusual gift ideas. I am a huge fan of online shopping. I just can’t say enough about it. No hassle, no kids, just me in my pajamas, a few clicks and this gift was shipped right to my door. All that for only 15.00. I may never go to a mall again.

Thought I’d follow up with the rest of the story…
I didn’t have time to order fabric, had nothing on hand, and just didn’t feel like shopping. Fortunately, I rediscovered an old dress of mine I had in my closet. I got it for a few bucks and wore it a couple of times only to decide I didn’t really like it on me after all. I thought, however, that it would be perfect for Isabella. It was actually an easy alteration. I adjusted the straps, took in the sides, chopped off the bottom, sewed on the ruffle, and sighed a great sigh of relief!
Easter morning I woke up at 6 am to a crashing noise. It was Isabella getting her dress down from high up in her closet. She was ready to see what the Easter bunny left for her in the living room, but didn’t want to begin her hunt without her dress on. (who would?)
We had a great day filled with warm sunshine and a fun family gathering.
Isabella was so pleased and proud to wear her Easter dress, even without the eggs on it.
