just a thought....

Creating quilts is a way of expressing my creativity. I love the process of dreaming what a new project might look like once it is done and watching my vision come to reality.

Little girls pillowcase dress

Until last week I didn't know what a pillowcase dress was. A relative of mine hinted that she would just love pillowcase dresses or anything sewn for her little girls for Christmas. I went straight to pinterest and checked out what a pillowcase dress was. I am now in love with the pillowcase dress.  I headed over to the fabric store and picked out the fabric. I found some nice quality quilting fabric. I made the straps out of chenille so they will be nice and comfy to wear. I made the owl applique mainly from the flowers which I cut from the background fabric and also chenille. the eyes are made from flowers, the wings are made from leaves, the beak is the center of a flower and the feet are also bits of flowers cut up.I stuffed the tummy of the owl with a small scrap of quilt batting.  This dress is for a two year old. Next on my sewing list is a bigger version of this dress for her eight year old sister.
