sew & tell - cute overload

If you are new or need a refresher for Sew & Tell guidelines you can click on the tab above for details on linking up!

How are you guys? I hope everyone has had a great week.  I was on a roll last week - I can't believe what getting your machine going for a few simple projects will do to a girl's motivation!  It helps that there are a ton of people here that are having babies for whom to make some little lovelies.

So to start off - how about another diaper clutch?  Hello, black and white and pink.  Have we met? Let's be friends.
I did a couple things different this time.  I added ribbon to swoop around the button instead of elastic (the elastic and I weren't getting along).  I also left out the interfacing.  Faster and the pink is a heavier linen weight, so I decided to do without the extra bulk.

I finally got around to the other dress from this pattern that I made earlier this summer.  It's a big hit!  I just need to get a picture of her modeling it.
These Nicey Jane fabrics are so . . . well, . . . nice.  And again, can I say how much I love my serger for finishing off all of those gathered inside seams!  Plus it makes hemming so much easier.

I have an Amy Butler project finished, but it's under wraps - I'll show it next week.  Hopefully along with this lovely fabric made into something extraordinarily fun! Any guesses?
I can't help it.  Every time I see this fabric laying around I want to take a picture of it!!

Don't forget! Only 2 more weeks!

Oh that Nicey Jane dress is beautiful. I am still looking at my Nicey Jane fabrics. Then you follow-up with some Amy Butler gorgeousness. Lucky you warned us in the title of your post! Glad you have had time to do some sewing.

I love that dress, and you have the most gorgeous fabric!

Do you have a tutorial on the diaper clutch? Or do you know where one could be found? I could probably figure it out myself, but not having kids makes it harder to know what mom's like :) Thanks! PS - Love the dress!

I love that diaper clutch and your clothing is always so cute. I've never been good with clothing so I'm terribly jealous to see your creations. -wink- ;)

Cute, cute, cute!!! There's never enough cute in the world, IMO. Gee, that black/white/pink clutch almost makes me wish I carried diapers--almost! Sweet dress, and I can't wait to see what your mystery project is!

Great projects and colors! That dress is cute:) I got my serger out this week to finish some pillowcases and forgot how fast it goes!
Thanks for the chance to share!

Goodness, what a delightful little dress. As for the fabric peek, I think a lovely pillow slip would be perfect, then you could lay your head upon it every night!

The green polka dots on blue looks to me like a baby sling they way it is draped over the chair.
I saw your mamma today! She stopped by as I was in my mom's driveway. She is so fun to visit with. She makes me laugh & she reminds me of you...two very good things to brighten any day!!! :)

Aunt Spicy said...

I guess you are making a skirt out of the Amy Butler fabric! And the Nicey Jane dress is just adorable!

Dayna said...

Amy, your projects are always so spectacular. I love your taste in fabric! Thanks for letting me know that I could link up my project from the weekend. I almost forgot! We are buried in boxes and such, and we just got our internet on today. So, I'm very excited to make it just in time for Sew & Tell. I can't wait to peruse everyone's links! It's been too long for me.

Catherine said...

Just love that little dress!!! Adorable!

Sara said...

I love the Amy Butler fabric that you chose for your project! I also liked the white halter dress, so cute! I am not sure how to link my project up, I'm a little sleepy right now :-)

Laura said...

Sorry I have been so out of the loop! I LOVE that diaper clutch. Can I have it?!? Actually I want a new, bigger bag made out of exactly that. :) I also love your pom pom pillow from last week. I am dying over that fabric. What is it again?
