MADE stuff

There is a craft blog I really like called MADE, mainly because the seamstress of the blog is the sewing equivalent to my sister Molly's cooking. They are both very creative and have crazy camera smiles :)

Anyways, I wanted to try a few of her patterns, so here they are:

The Warhol Dress. This is a free pattern and comes together in about an hour:

I thickened the neckline a bit too much, but I think it's still kind of cute. Sorry for the blurriness, but I just love that chubby toddler belly poking out! And this dress is made from a $1 5XL t-shirt from Wal-Mart, that has a ton more material left to use.

The Rollie Pollie bean bag chair:

*Crazy kid stretched the neckline out trying to get naked! :)

This bean beag is actually stuffed with our stuffed animals, which was an idea from Molly. The pattern was $6 but very detailed. Put in my first zipper on this little baby!

I am so proud of myself, because I have not bought fabric in over 2 months! So I am finally tackling all of the projects and materials I have literally shoved in my closet. (Yes, I am a shover. Don't look under my couch!)

Love it!!! I would ask you to make me a bean bag for Christmas, but I know how busy young mommas are!

her site makes me want to sew (: I was holding sleeping M when I read this and when you made the comment about Mollys photo face I laughed out loud and e woke up - oops - but that is so true...I have a boon bag that is stuffed with animals and that was what it was made for - cool stuff until Shay decides to empty it and then you have animals strewn everywhere (along with everything else)

I'm a shover, too! Good for you keeping your fabric purchases under control. The Warhol dress turned out really cute....even after she tried to escape from it and stretched it out a bit!
