cherry fun

hi all!

where did this week go?  they seem to go faster and faster the older i get.  at this rate i am going to entirely miss the second half of my life!

i HAVE been working hard this week – lots of stuff going on with the magazine plus getting several classes together.  I expect to launch Colored Pencil 2 on May 24th and Card Making Techniques on June 6th.  So mark your calendars!  and of course just the general chasing Pezza around and such 😛

today’s post actually features Pezza – i got some outfits done for her and have one to show you today:

why isn’t Pezza modeling it?  because this is what i got when i told her to pose with her new outfit for a picture:

ANNNND it got sillier from there.

The fabric is from webfabrics – LOVE shopping there and the ladies there are the VERY best!  quilt fabric is so fun to choose from because it comes in coordinating collections just like paper!

i used McCalls 5416mcc pattern – oh so quick and easy – really foolproof and very little sewing!  the pattern has this shirt and shorts plus a longer version of the shirt so it can be a dress.

Next i used my Cricut Imagine to add the adorable little cherry applique on the front:

i used steam a seam lite on the back of the fabric instead of heat n bond ultra and while it worked it definitely didn’t work as well.  then i ironed them to the shirt and stitched around the edges.  Pezza loves it.  i can’t wait to make her more outfits!

we are in for a rainy weekend so i am not sure what i am going to do with little miss insanity all weekend.  i hope you all have a fun one!!!
