I had a lot of fun decorating these canvas shoes for Sophie. I found some fabric with roses it. I ironed a stiff stabilizer on it. I applies sequins and seed beads to the roses. I than glued them on with a good glue. I than added a few vines with a paint pen. I spread glue on the toes and sprinkles glittler on them. They look so cute. Hopefully Sophie will like them.

I had a lot of fun making this summer dress. It is from Sewing with Whimsy by Keri Mecca. It is VERY full. Lucy loves twirling in it. I was lucky to find a trim in my stash that matched perfect. There is 10 yards of rick rack around the bottom. I can just see her running along the beach this summer on vacation.

Now that Spring is here the girls are playing outdoors a lot more. They have outgrown most of their summer clothes. Yes Lucy does get a lot of hand me downs but they have differant size bodies. Sophie was thin but taller. Lucy is really thin and more fragile looking. What looked good on Sophie doesn't look good on Lucy. So they both need new clothes. So it means Grandma has to get to work. I looked in my stash and found the pink print with just the right amount of fabric for a top for Lucy. I thought the yellow would make nice capris. For playclothes I thought I would root thru my stash and try to use up some fabric. Even though they are playclothes we still want them to look nice. The top is a rather basic top, so I added a little rick rack to spice it up. I thought the capri's needed a little something. So I appliqued a butterfly , like the ones in the print, on the pant leg. I think the ruffle added a little fun.I had just enought fabric left to make the headband. The outfit ia complete. Now to start on something new.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day. My family met at my daughter Sue's house for brunch this morning. Only the two that live out of town didn't make it. The other six were there. We had a great time. The younger grandkids had a Easter egg hunt as usual. I made Sophie and Lucy's dresses from the Felize pattern from THE BOOK. I like how they turned out. They also wore them last week to their cousin's wedding. Everyone there loved the dresses. They do not usually get to see boutique clothes.
