Feeling Sew Blessed!

Well, the preparations for the wedding are coming right along.
Autumn Wedding Centerpieces. http://memorablewedding.blogspot.com/2014/01/4-fabulous-autumn-wedding-ideas.html
Today my friend and I sewed for a few hours... and took a matching size XL girls dress ( that matches Angie and Jenny's dress), and cut it down and completely reconstructed it to a size 18 months!
 I couldn't have done it without my best friend by my side. She is simply amazing! I learn something new every time I sew with her. Plus, it is way more fun to do something like that with a friend. Now all we have to do is add belt loops ( which I need to crochet and attach on the sides ) to hold our ribbon and bow. I think it will be so fun to have the girl's dresses completely match.

Then the rest of the evening, I spent taking 2 normal size ( extra ties that we bought for the wedding ) and made 2 toddler size ties to match the men. It was way easier than I thought!

 I tried to even put the label and loop on the back to make it look like normal, because I had to just zigzag the edge, it came out alright. I have to remember that it is only the back!
Now all I have to do is make a new born bow tie for Nick's little nephew who will be born next week! We can hardly wait to meet him too!

After sewing one of the loops on the right side twice, I realized I had been in my sewing room almost 10 hours today...that is way too long. Need to do some of my back exercises and head to bed. But feel great that we are making progress.

"One who makes no mistakes, never makes anything!
This truly should have been my motto tonight for sure!
Good night dear friends!
