Summer Sewing

Okay, let's get this out quick. This is not a comprehensive list (because I usually forget to take pictures of my projects while I'm working on them) but you guys, I sewed a lot this summer.

Here we go.

1. I sewed this doll for Riley. She is just starting to show interest in it. Not featured is her matching skirt (which is somewhere in the depths of her toy drawer...)

2. I made Riley's blessing dress! More like the #blessings dress (I apologize to those I have already shared this joke with. Hah, I think I am sooo funny). Seriously though. I thought about what I wanted, created my own pattern, and put it all together. I was so grateful that it fit the day of and that Riley didn't scream the whole time she wore it, haha. This was my inspiration:

And this was my finished product:

Those jewels were a pain to sew on...
And there she is in it. 
I just love her face and feet in this picture.
And if you didn't see this before:

Gets me every time.
3. I made a SWIMSUIT! For a baby.

This is Karisa: best friend/recipient/shockingly gorgeous baby mama.
4. Headbands. So many headbands. These ones are my favorites for now.

I also made three blankets and haven't taken pictures of them at all. However, I did take a video of Riley while she was playing on one of them, so...


There you go!

Have a good one.


  1. Beautiful creations! I am so in love with that little dress. It's absolutely adorable.

    1. Thank you so much! Check back again because I am always working on projects. :)

  2. Your daughter is absolutely adorable! I love the blessing dress and headbands! I wish I were better at sewing, but I never have opportunities to sew and practice sewing.

    1. Thank you! She takes after her father mostly. :) I just started sewing in December and I learned everything from the internet for free (which is probably more obvious than I realize, haha) so there is hope for you yet!

  3. I loveee the blessing dress! I love how the jewels are oversized.
