Crafty sew and sew in Dorset

Welcome to my world of craft!

Creativity runs in the family (hopefully)

It’s our daughters 10th birthday next week,  not sure where the time went!! Recently she has shown a keen interest in sewing and started to make her own doll’s clothing and toys so we have decided to buy her a sewing machine for her room.

I’m so excited and can’t wait to give it to her.  She has a really independent streak and definitely does not follow the fashion (a bit like me who wouldn’t know what was trendy and just wear clothes that I like in random patterns!!)
I am hoping giving her the ability to create whatever fashion ideas she had in her head will stand her in good stead as she gets older.

I offered to make her a dress for her birthday so she chose a pattern from my love sewing magazine issue 21 called the flo dress.
She opted for the same fabric I used on my Goddaughter’s dress a few weeks ago. Floral on top and red polka dot on the full skirt.
I’ll post a photo in the next few days,  I love that it’s quite old fashioned and she still loves twirling in it at her age.
Her actual birthday dress she wants made in this fabric….

Got to love a girl who wants a dress in this fabric!!  I have ordered a couple of new patterns for her from sewdirect.com as I wanted a pattern that would do this fabric justice.

My daughter wanted me to post some photos of her dolls in outfits she made for them, including some out of daffodil petals……
