I was on vacation last week and couldn't help but sneak onto blogger to check in on everyone.
&I'm so glad I did!!
Did you guys know that Max California & Sew Chibi are doing a new series called Sew Geeky?
You probably do, huh.
Well, I was so frustrated that I couldn't create anything RIGHT THEN.
So, when I got home my hubs and I sat down and looked at all the awesome new patterns I had won during the Fabric Matching competition. He looked through my fabric and threw out ideas (really great ones too!) & together we came up with an awesome design using the Ivy Dress from Peekaboo Pattern Shop . <--- click to visit their shop
I won a 5 pack of patterns & it is what Lily picked for herself. <3
She's completely thrilled with it.
The Ms. Pacman dress is made from knits. I've used that black and white striped fabric for so many garments. It's seriously 1/2 of my kids summer wardrobe? lol
I used it for the bodice& the bottom is a black knit from Joann's.
The FUN is in the skirt where I drew and appliqued the characters. It starts with Ms.Pacman eating her dots& she's chased by all the ghosts.
Those guys were quite the task. I hand embroidered their eyes which took the longest.
Lily was motivating me along the way.
By motivating I mean asking me "If you work hard and tried your best tonight could you be done so I could wear it tomorrow?"
Did I mention that she plays Ms.Pacman on her ipod?
It was her 5th Birthday present& she loves it. Probably too much!
I've downloaded games; some learning and some classics.
Next I promised to put her favorite songs on it.
For now I think the dress will suffice. She danced around for the photo shoot & I promised she could wear it tomorrow.
Hope you all have a lovely night,
I'm off to bed.
