Layout and first Pillowcase dress

So this past week I have gone back and forth between doing scrapbook layouts and also teaching myself how to read patterns and work on my stitching so really quick I wanted to show you guys what I made!

The layout is CRICUTLESS (I know, shocker!)but it is scraplifted from a post Teresa Collins made on her blog. (I don't know if she came up with this layout or if she had a guest designer, either way, THANKS for the inspiration!). I used thickers for my title and cut out the butterfly from the same paperpack (that wasn't actually scraplifted though!) The flowers are actually fabric flowers with some gems in the middle and that was it! So easy :)

**Please excuse the horrible picture angle. My camera is out of battery so I had to use my FLIP.**

I have been working my way up to trying to make a dress for my daughter so yesterday I finally ordered a pattern from the Crafty Gemini for a pillowcase dress and got to work! I made a blue and brown dress and it came out awesome but I definitely learned A LOT! Practice definitely makes perfect when it comes to sewing! ;) So after using cheapy Walmart material I finally went to Hobby Lobby and bought some beautiful fabric that reminded me of Teresa Collin's Sophisticated cartridge in my favorite color combo, pink and black! Doesn't it match my scrapbook layout?! :D

Have a great week :D


  1. Love how your two projects match! The pillowcase dress is so cute. I've seen a lot of moms make them for their daughters using the Disney characters, but I much prefer yours even though I LOVE Disney! That's going to be one stylish little girl!

  2. WOW! I love the dress and the layout is adorable.
