A picture is worth 1000 word s

Between running a family of five, a photography business, and a part time job; there is not much time left to sit down and write about all the happenings of our adventures. So I will let the pictures do the talking ...Enjoy!

My 1st sewing project

So I've always wanted to learn how to sew. My grandmother is an incredible seamstress, she is AMAZING! She made dresses for us when we were little and she makes dolls, and she makes all of the dolls clothes. She made me a bride doll for my wedding and the dress matches mine exactly with all the beading and everything. She really is so good! Well I got a sewing machine from my beautiful aunt and my best friend showed me how to use it so I decided I would just dive in and give it a shot and if I needed I could call grandma for help :) So I made some car seat covers. My aunt just had a baby so I made her one that matched her car seat and I picked out some other material that I thought would be cute for my friends baby. I just looked at the cover that I have and kind of made my own pattern from that. So here is how they turned out. Not perfect but I'm pretty proud of them I hope they like them!

I LOVE my carseat cover!! Thank you SO much. People comment on how cute it is whenever I am out and about. You are so talented, especially to be able to do that without a pattern. Grandma is so proud of you! She said that is very impressive that you can do that without a pattern when you are just learning. I had that sewing machine for years and never made anything more than a sock puppet so I'm glad you can put it to good use. Oh and thanks for calling me "beautiful" ;-) Love you!
