All night Sewing Party at My House!!!

Yes, Sweet pea can hardly hold her excitement about this! I sat at my new sewing machine yesterday evening and got to know my new friend. I made Sweet pea this Hopscotch top first, which after I tried it on her she wouldn't give back, lol.
 And then the skirt to go with the top, I can't believe how nice my new machine sews. It makes sewing addictive, not that it wasn't already. ;) I also finished up the strips in Sweet pea's room yesterday morning. I thought I would never finish! 
 Say cheese!!
 The top is all knit, yes that's right! I was so excited to sew a top from a pattern and it turned out! The skirt has a working button placket down the center front and cute pockets that were inspired by Chinese take out boxes.
And a new bubble dress with the scallops. I love this fun print, it loos like bubble floating off in the summer breeze.

 and yes there is even more!! New curtains or Sweet pea's room makeover. I used fabric from Hobby Lobby, marked down to $7 a yard. I really love this print. Now all her rooms need is new carpet and a new home made bumper pad. whhew, I am tired!!
Happy Sewing Ladies!!
