what should I make?

I have this wonderful fabric that is crying out for a fabulous creation. But what should I make it into?

My first idea was a dress, but it's a fairly large print, which can make it hard to turn into a garment without the repeat becoming well, an eyesore. Skirts can work better with large repeats I have found. But perhaps a maternity dress? Or should I just horde it for when the inspiration makes itself clear? Maybe a Baby dress, with matching booties?? Oh, be still my beating heart. So wonderful!!!!

Here are some great ideas. Not sure which I want yet.

I've also been going through one of my most favorite sewing books, Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner. 

I was thinking of making those little booties on the cover, and maybe that dress. You should really pick up this book. Great stuff in there. She also blogs about her creations, needlepoints, fabrics, quilts and the like.

I'm perpetually in love with everything she does.

Well, first I MUST finish Poppy's quilt, then we can do baby clothes.!!!! My Mom is soooo excited. Baby stuff is her favorite. I should hope so, she did have 10 children.

  1. These are some adorable outfits. I have found some amazing Kids Dresses at Burlington Coat Factory. They had such great prices too. They made it so easy and my daughters look precious in their new clothes.
