Tis the season for getting back to those routines of school.
Laura was the last of our household to start school this year--very unfair to younger brothers who had to start MUCH earlier--and I got to travel to Georgia and spend a few days helping her get resettled in the dorm.
After all the settling was done, we, of course, went shopping! Kudzu is one of my new favorite places to browze (and buy--I still want that cute table and chairs!). Their sign by the front door says it all:
Haven't we all had this feeling when we are searching for that one skein of yarn or last
piece of fabric needed to finish a project?
We have lots of moms who did finish their smocking projects for the first day of school. I'm so proud of them!!
Here is Anna Jane on her first day of school. Her mother used the Lindsay pattern from Bonnie Blue and a smocking plate from Little Memories. A picture of her dress as a work in progress is here. Her smart mother has a great tutorial here for an appliqued t-shirt!
Daniela did a great job on her daughter's first day dress:
Sew Cute Couture
Summer's daughter and her doll in their new dresses made from the Oliver +S pattern Puppet Show Tunic and Dress. Notice the bullion roses on the collar that match her floral print!
All patterns and fabrics are available at Knit One Smock Too.
Now that vacations are over, we have so many classes starting. Come learn something new with us!
