Diapers for the baby dolls

Audrey my 2 year old granddaughter does love her baby dolls.

Tracy my daughter calls and says, Audrey got her a chair and climbed up to get her diaper bag and proceeds to pull out all the diapers. A total mess, but what's a toddler to do if her babydolls needs diapers. You share what you got, right?

So Nana gets busy and makes diapers for the babies.

I found a free diaper pattern here

OOPS! I just noticed I sewed my velcro on different than instructed. Mine laps from the front to back, suppose to be back to front. Oh well...a senior moment!

Pink fishes for the princess

I found this fabric in my stash a few days ago. I thought it was a quilting cotton, but upon feeling it... it is the silkest, smoothest finish ever. To make a long story short, this is swimsuit fabric from Chez Ami that I purchased about a year ago. Anyway I made Audrey an outfit out of it. It is called Tactel and I plan to buy more. In fact it's on sale right now!

If you'll notice I used the same pattern as the last outfit I made her. It is so super easy. Sews up in a hurry... gotta love that!

See ya

Sewing for Audrey

I've decided to create a blog to document my creations. Lots to learn here. Notice I uploaded the same image twice. I don't know how to delete it. Lots and lots to learn for this sewing Nana.

I thoroughly enjoy sewing for my youngest granddaughter. Her name is Audrey she just turned 2 years old. She loves everything I sew for her. Her greatest delight is going in Nana's sewing room.
She love to drag out sewing scraps.

The pattern I used is "Tana Tutu Dress" by Nanoo Designs
I did modify the straps.

This lil sundress was made using Chez Ami fabric. I used a paisley fabric for lining.
I cut a strip of nylon chiffon and used my ruffling foot to attach it to the lining. I'm pleased with the results. It's Cute, Cute even if I did make it myself!
