It was a blizzard here yesterday. School was cancelled, daycare closed. We stayed home all nice and warm.
I mainly did mundane housework like laundry and dishes. After that I sat sewed a bit. I have had this little outfit cut out for my daughter's American Girl Doll for 2 months. 2 months!
I had to finish it. Plus I am really trying to master using knit fabric on my sewing machine. I have a ball needle for knits now and that helped...still I need practice. Knit is a far cry from quilting cottons.
My goal today is the looks through the American Girl 18" doll patterns and cut more t-shirts, pants, skirts and pajamas. Grace seemed to really like this outfit and that it fit so well. The pattern I used is in the All Dolled Up book by Joan Hinds. I used some knit from JoAnn's and Me and My Sister Oh! Cherry Oh! fabric from a Moda scrap bag from a few years ago for the skirt. It went together pretty easily....except for the whole knit part. I will concur it though!! I will.
I am also trying to squeeze in a Moda bakeshop tutorial. There are a HUGE number of patterns coming on the bakeshop and so I have to take a number and likely won't have it on until April. I think you will like it though :)
