Sewing Handbags & Dresses, Oh My!

Pin It
My poor blog has taken a back seat this week, hey, it's been busy around here!

Everything will be back to normal next week and The SoChick Chick's Guide to Fabric will continue with [Part 4].  In the meantime, here's some of what I've been working on:

[Custom Order] Messenger Purse:
Gray Canvas with 100% Cotton lining and accents.  I love the Topaz Gem print from Art Gallery Fabric's Bespoken Collection, and was thrilled when my customer selected it!

Inside, the bag has a flap to secure the iPad to the back of the bag... it's adjustable to accommodate iPads in portfolios and cases, too. *wink*

 Along with some organizational pockets in the main compartment, there is also a front pocket, under the flap, that can hold keys, phone, accessories, etc.


My first-ever attempt at a child's dress, well... at any dress for that matter!

The Pattern is The Lilly Top by Pink Fig Design.

 As you can tell, my little chickie LOVES her new dress, and I loved how easy it was to sew!  Seriously, I'm happy to adventure into quilting, love designing and making all sorts of handbags, but am so intimidated by garment sewing!  This was a nice way of getting my toes wet... also a great break from working on orders, kind of a way to rejuvenate my brain for the next batch of handbags and totes!

Spring Break starts tomorrow for Chick-a-dee Number One, so we'll be looking for all kinds of fun stuff for us gals to do, what are some of your go-to Spring Break activities?
