So the other day I had the itch to create something. I had a dress pattern here I bought a long time ago and had never tried, and not feeling too creative, I went with it.
This girl doesn't do patterns well. I dont have the patience for them. To me, they are just a confusing mess of nonsense. Something about followinf directions.
So after having to call my mom for help over the phone, and more time wasted than it was worth, I ended up just doing my own thing.
For the bird "applique", I cheated and cut the bird out and sewed it on using the button hole stitch on my sewing machine.
I made a matching burp cloth and headband with it too :)
