Julianne and her friend Sarah have been pretty inseparable all summer. Saturday night she spent the night at Sarah's and when I went to pick her up on Sunday I ended
up bringing Sarah home with us. Sarah showed Julianne how to curl her hair and while I was a bit skeptical cause the girl has stick straight hair and the couple of times she's had it curled for weddings, it was uncurled pretty fast. They used those spongy pink curlers that have been around for ever and it turned out really cute. It's that "sorta curled" look that a lot of the tween idols wear now. She did it herself and is very proud of it.
Speaking of Julz ~ She and I made her a purse/wallet/tissue holder combo. She picked out the fabrics (I added the red for some punch) and we kinda sewed it together. She stepped on the petal while I (sitting next to her on the side of the machine) fed the stuff through. Talk about tricky! Actually she fed some of it through but she still gets a bit nervous. I think it all turned out very cute.
I also made this grab & go bag for a swap I'm doing on a yahoo group. This is the second one I made. The first one was just for practice and this time, thanks to advice from a bloggy friend (thanks Sandra)I put pockets inside and outside of this one. I think they will come in handy for a phone.Hopefully the recipient will like my fabric choices.
I've started using jars for my buttons and separating them by color Now I just need a way to cover up the jar lids. Maybe paint or fabric ~ any ideas?
Well back to the sewing room for me. I'm doing a new purse for Jen to match the dress she got to wear to her graduation. Wish me luck!
