Look Ma! No Naps
It looks like I'm going to have to figure out a whole new game plan for Sydney and I. It's been a week since the child has taken a nap. . . she went from napping 3 hours a day to no nap cold turkey. I'm hoping that maybe now she'll go to bed earlier and that I can get my sewing and Etsying done in the evenings. We shall see. In the meantime, I've managed to finish up a dress for Sydney. I'm really excited about how it turned out. I used a pattern by Zozobugbaby on Etsy. I made the dress using "scraps" my friend sent me. All in all, a very easy pattern to follow makes a great little dress with lots of possibilites. I love that it has adjustable straps so Sydney will be able to wear this for years. I made a few small changes just because. I moved the seam from the side of the dress to the back and sewed the straps in a little different to avoid having raw edges. Raw edges bug me! I'm pretty sure I'll be making some more of these.
Coming soon. . . a new tutorial! A reader emailed me about a pattern for the make up brush roll I made a while back. As soon as I regroup from losing my midday break, I'll be making up a tutorial for the make up brush rolls. It's super quick and simple and would make a great gift for the make up lovers you know.
