Dress a Girl Around the World

I recently found this charity on one of the blogs I follow called littlebiggirlstudio. After reading into the organization I couldn't help but want to get involved. The dresses are very easy and the impact is huge! To see more on how to make the dresses and the different details you can add please visit littlebiggirlstudio or the Dress a Girl Around the World website.

Here are the dresses I made for the charity and I'm excited to make some more!



Happy Birdday!



I made this tote for a friend of mine who moved to Phillie this past year. She is a bird lover and I hope she can get a lot of use out of this bag! I wanted it to have a zipper so she can keep things safe if she is traveling while using it. I used this pattern and found the bird fabric at Treadle (sorry I spelled it wrong last time I posted it) in St. Paul. It is Joel Dewberry.


I added a little bird detail to the top by cutting out one of the birds from the fabric design and appliqueing it to the corner.

Oh, Mr. Wilson...

One of my very good friends has finally gotten herself the most adorable puppy! In celebration of his homecoming I wanted to make him a bed to rest his little paws. Here is what I came up with for Wilson.




I chose charcoal gray for the main part of the bed and then did alternating blue and white stripes with a solid yellow for the sides. I made the bone applique and embroidered his name on it so none of the other dogs he plays with will mistake it for theirs.
