I made six of these little cuties for Christmas. The skirt was super simple with a quilted band in the front.

When I first saw this cute fabric I knew I needed to make this skirt. Here it is--just in time for another granddaughter's birthday!
The fabric is from the Modern love collection by Lizzie B Cre8ive .
Here's the birthday girl trying on her new skirt. Looks like she saved a little birthday cake for later!

I realized I've been sewing with a lot woven fabrics lately and thought it was time for a change. Here's a cute little knit dress that I fell in love with. It was made from Simplicity pattern #8147.
My Cute granddaughter requested a dress with pockets and sleeves just below her elbow. This dress was perfect. The only change I made was to lengthen the sleeves just a bit. If you have some experience with knits, this is a pretty simple dress.

I found this beautiful blue eyelet and knew I had to make something for a granddaughter.
I used Simplicity Pattern #1433. The dress was pretty straightforward with a couple of exceptions. First of all watch the seam allowances! Some of them are only 3/8". Secondly, I found the armholes to be super large for the size so I had to make adjustments. Other than that, I think it's really a great little dress.

I got a new sewing machine! I love it! I am a true blue Bernina girl so I finally decided on a special edition 530. I wanted to experiment with my new toy so I took a little break from work sewing and made these cute pillowcases for the grandkids. I think they made a cute Valentine's Day Gift!
