SEW fun!!!

So...I've been sewing a lot lately! I'm going to say that's the reason that I haven't posted in ages. ;-) Earlier this year I made a decision to start sewing more of the girls' clothes. So, I bought a TON of patterns on etsy back at the beginning of Spring. I've been slowly working my way through making all of them. It takes a long time when you have to make 2 of everything!

I have taken pics of all of my projects. Some of them are on the girls and some are just on hangers. :-)

I think these were the first dresses I made this year. The girls wore them with cream turtlenecks and tights when it was still cold and they wore them as sundresses after it got hot. The versatility of a pillowcase dress can't be beat! I got the pattern for these at this etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/shop/froglegsandponytails

I loved these dresses because they were a little different. The pattern had the option to make short sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves. I made these 3/4 length so they could wear them in the early spring when it was still cool. Unfortunately, the etsy store from which I purchased these patterns is no longer available.

These are the girls' Easter Dresses. I think they are one of my favorite things they have ever worn. Maybe I'm just really proud of all the effort I put into making them! The pattern for the dresses came from this etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/shop/KustomKidsBoutique. The pattern for the flower pins came from here - http://www.etsy.com/shop/fabricboutique

These little rompers are just to die for cute! I won't lie, they weren't a piece of cake to make, but they were well worth it! They were especially difficult because I wanted the patterns on the fabric to match up at the seam on the front, so that required a little more work. Thanks to my MOM, the ever-so-talented-seamstress, I figured it out. I ordered this pattern from this etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/shop/patternsbyfiggys

Pillowcase dresses have to be the easiest things to make that are SO cute!!! I ordered these true vintage pillowcases on ebay. It took about 1/2 hour to make one of them into a dress. I love them!

These cutie little dresses were a cinch to make. I ordered a DIY kit from this etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/shop/AmybugsOriginalStyle. The pieces were all cut out and numbered, ready to sew! I really hate all of the prep work that sewing requires, so this was so fun for me! And at $15 a dress, I thought they were a steal. Thanks to my friend Becky for letting me know about these!

These adorable little yo-yo flowers were enclosed and already made for me! All I had to do was sew them on the finished product.

Fantastic work, girl!! Very, very cute stuff!! Wish I had some sewing talent. Most of my stuff growing up my grandma, great grandma, or mom made. Somehow, I missed that sewing gene!

From there, make sure that when you wager with an online casino that you know exactly what you are doing. The biggest mistake that you could possibly make would be to place bets on games that you are unsure of. For example, if you want to play blackjack at an online casino but do not know how, make sure you get some details first. If you do not, you are doing the equivalent of throwing your money out the window. The bottom line is that you can never win at an online casino if you do not know the rules of the games that you are going to play.

Online betting is just another rapidly growing diversion in the visual community. You will bet on the sport you choose through websites on the internet. All the details of betting are stated clearly on the site itself, including the possible amount that you may get if you'll win.
