A Christmas Dress

I had so much fun sewing up this Christmas dress for my daughter.

Do you ever go through times where you are obsessed with one or two colors and you start to notice that everything you buy or make is that color? I do! Right now its all the natural tones. I couldn't help doing this little number in the Gold and white. I'm just loving gold.

A fun little skirt

I loved this fabric so I bought some. I ended up making a fun skirt out of it after finding this cute polka-dotted zipper!

colored pencil rolls

Tutorials for crayon rolls have been all over the sewing/craft blogs for a while now. I finally put some together for my kiddos for Christmas. I looked at a couple different tutorials but since I used colored pencils instead of crayons I had to make some changes to the measurements. Also one of these tutorials uses interfacing and one uses flannel to help give this roll a little more stability. I decided to use fusible fleece and I thought it worked wonders.

Here are the two tutorials I looked at before starting:

Crayon roll by Prudent Baby They used some fun ribbon to tie up the roll.

Crayon roll by The Pleated Poppy They used a button and elastic to fasten the roll up.

These went together so fast and I think they will be perfect for my youngsters for church.
