Time for a project, stat! I don’t want to get behind on my Christmas in July projects. Of which I planned ZERO.
I don’t have nearly enough table runners. I’m serious. So I grabbed a charm pack of Folk Art Holiday by Moda.
The pattern is from the booklet Angles With Ease 2 by Heather Peterson. And I got to use my Triangler ruler from Anka’s Treasures. I cut the remaining charm squares in half, sewed them into a 2-1/2″ strip and used them as the binding. I am loving my scrappy binding!
I used my walking foot and improvised the quilting.
Oh look! The back of the runner is the infamous Hawaiian print of yore! Christmas 2012 I made matching outfits for the family out of the red and white. We rocked that Christmas photo.
A few of us had different colored hair back then.
I got the shots of my new table runner, then someone seemed to need a little photo sesh…
I’m all about indulging the children.
Why, oh why do I feel compelled to dress this puppy? Is it because of her adorable little face? Those gigantic ears? The fact that she’s only six inches tall?
I was trolling around on Etsy and found the mother lode of patterns for tiny little dog clothes. The pattern company is called Sofi & Friends, this pattern is called the Sweet Pea dress. I used Moda Scrumptious fabric, the same fabric I used for that cute little baby quilt with the dresses. Little Dorito is so tiny that I only needed teeny little pieces.
She still has plenty of room to grow in this, and it is the size xx-small.
The dress is fully lined. Only the best for my little diva. The patterns are beautifully drafted and accurate. There are lots of great details, like the d-ring so the dress can also work as a harness. I have no idea where or why she will wear this dress. But when she does, she will look breathtaking. Now for some examples of her modeling poses…
She acted like she had been frozen in place when I put it on her. I didn’t even match up the velcro because I was scrambling to get my camera. We obviously need to work on her catwalk.
