All in White

My little niece asked if I would make her something for her baptism. She knew I was working on a blessing dress for my baby grand daughter, Nahla. Gracee wanted something special too.My mother has collected a lot of lace which I used in this dress. Layers and layers of lace and toile.

I used my base pattern from the Olivia Skirt from the Butterfly Kisses pattern line. The flower embellishment is layers of fabric and lace with strands of lace and ric rac hanging. I stitched antique buttons to the center. This is removable. We have yet to find and embellish a cute sweater to go with the skirt.There are still a few more weeks to finish this project. Of course, she will need leggings and a headband.

This is the blessing dress I have been working on for Nahla. I used the base of a onesie. On one side I did swirls of cotton ruffles and flowers with stitched pearls in the middle of the stitched roses. On the other side I used swirls of lace and toile. I used yards and yards of lace and toile. 

The length of the skirt is almost 30" long from the waist with a tie at the bottom.

It was quite the chore getting Nahla dressed in and out of this outfit. Once she was in her dress you had to be very careful to not loose her in the mass of lace and fabric.

The headpiece is made up of toile, lace, pearls and some fabric twisted flowers on an elastic white stretch lace. Look at her sleeping. She is so beautiful and peaceful! Notice her cute bracelet my sister made out of pearls.

 Can you see her painted toes and fingernails? Her little leggings are a pair of nylons that I cut the feet out of and added stretch lace. I ruffled toile and sewed it on with some crocheted flowers in the middle.

Tahmor holding Nahla with her cute ballets. The only pink she is wearing. Her dress is pulled up so you can see her little leggings and ballets.

 Another photo of the whole outfit.

And there she is in all her glory. Beautiful Princess!

She is so precious!
We had a special day with lots and family and friends.

Headed to Ruby's to teach for the week. Can't wait to share all the fun projects we will be making.

Happy Sewing!

Love the red and yellow.

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.

I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.

This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 

I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 

I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.
