Union Jack Pillow

Sometimes a girl just needs a Union Jack in her life.....
I'm mostly British so it should be okay that I have one of these in my room right (wink, wink)?
The awesome thing about sewing is that a person can do so many things with that skill to fix up wardrobes and homes and save money in the process. I used an old pillow and old fabric to whip this up. I had to run to the store to get a few things but only had to use pocket change to pay for them!!! I'm in love with the look.

Parade Day Dress

I had a vision for this dress for a year, and it finally came to pass! I love the fabric and although I sewed the skirt to the dress incorrectly a few times (!!!! late night sewing!!!!) I did practice some new techniques that I have been converted to, namely using seam binding on the collar and using a zig zag stitch over a small ribbon to gather. Both can be found on the amazing Coletterie website. Sign up for their email "Snippets". I always learn so much from them!
