Well I finally think I have a plan for the Art fairs. I have pulled all my fabric down from my sewing room and completely taken over the dining room. Why I think I need to take over another room to focus is beyond me - but that is the way my brain works. I have sorted and sketched(I use that term loosely) at least nine dresses, nine skirts and over nine ruffles. There are some old favorites and some brand new designs! I am really happy with the way everything looks. I don't know if anyone in the world would consider my fabric covered dining room table a piece of organized art - but I know it is!
Did anyone spot the HTF fabric? - I am going to use it! I found this last yard and a half in a quilt store last summer and have been hoarding it. As I was working on my designs I realized that I love this fabric and if I use it for the front bodice of a dress - I could make about 6-8 dresses using it. I would rather see six to eight girls enjoying those dresses (one of which will be my Jessie) then having the fabric sit in a closet. If you haven't guessed the HTF fabric is the Heather Ross Bicycles in the last pic. I'm combining it with some ginger blossom and Darla fabric and maybe some ribbon - so it will be sweet and fun!
Well now that I have finished the creative part it is on to the more tedious task of finalizing my patterns. I like my clothes to have a certain fit so I have started creating my own patterns - I will give you a look soon ...only 9 weeks until Crafts on Columbus - aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!
