Our church has a vacation bible school each summer. This year, they ran out of shirts  for the tiniest campers. No problem! Our smallest camper preferred a dress anyway. Working with this tshirt fabric was so fun. Since it doesn't fray when you cut it, I was able to make this in a half hour.

Whipped up this "5 hour Baby Sweater" during a three day lecture for work. Organic cotton yarn.

I love these colors. I finished this dress just so I could do a bit of experimenting with the photos. I am glad that I can re-read advice by email. I can be a slow learner, and photography seems to seep in like tar.
I have one more size3 flutter sleeve dress cut out. I'll try to squeeze in some more midnight sewing.

I am so happy with these pictures! They are far from great, but I feel like I'm making some progress in my photo skills.

My model is much too small here. This is the Ramona Cross Body Bag. I found this great fat quarter of fabric that had hot air balloons, adobe homes, and old route 66 printed on it. My dear friend lived in New Mexico, so this was a fun thing to make with her in mind.

This is it. After a week of research, shopping (online), and even a star consultation from my friend who happens to be a professional beauty photographer. This picture. It may not seem like much, but I'm really trying to work on my lighting issues. This was my best shot out of more than twenty.
