some sewing and crocheting

I loved the shirt dress when I saw it and thought to make it some day. with my two little daughters it seems always impossible to do sewing, as they tend to put hands over the work be it either cutting or sewing, they jump over to see how am I doing things or want to assist me by holding things, they take it as a game and say “now it’s my turn”, and all this ends with one more unfinished project lying in the shelf.

but when I saw one of my husbands shirts, which he stopped wearing, I decided to try my hand over the shirt dress. it took me the whole day to finish it up (it happens when you have two very active assistants who want to take over your place) and finally when I was done  my girls refused to try it, saying, “woo papa ka hai” (that is papa’s). somehow I made Achu to wear the dress.

I used the leftover of one of my dress, that I had made, for the belt and added ruffles to give it a little brightness. added a fabric flower at the top to lure my girls to wear it by saying “it has a cute flower on it”.

now i had the leftover of the shirt and the dress, quite enough to make another dress for Aaku. and I made it on the following day.

here are the two dresses.

Aaku's dress
Achu's dress
can you see the flower?

that’s all about the sewing, and now the crocheting; I made a little jungle friend for my daughters. its an elephant, a little elephant, my girls love it. here is the picture;

other then all these I also made a little purse for myself.
