sewing, sewing, and more sewing

i headed out very early yesterday morning to hit up fabricland's 50-70% member sale. i got some new goodies (finally a loop turner!), stood in several lines for a very long time, lost and found elmo (twice) and came out happy (with no little one tears) and with a few projects on the go. there won't be a fit friday in the mommyhood today due to my sewing frenzy - meaning no computer time, mixed in with a brand new potty training toddler (more on that later). sometimes i feel the need to just sew and yesterday was one of them.

here's what i'm up to:

* a new tutorial for the "newbie sewing series" - this is a fun one, perfect for summer!

* a dress for my best friend's daughters birthday - i'm making the enlarged version of the "itty bitty dress" from made by rae. i am loving the pattern and am almost done. it was my first time using piping and bias tape - quite the experience..haha. i will post pictures after the weekend.

* a dress for mackenzie - i need to use up some adorable owl material i have been scared to sew with. not sure which pattern to use, any suggestions for a great size 2 dress that's free?

* a dress for me - yes, this is the one that i am needing all that lovely pattern 9-1-1 help you all so lovingly gave me. i need to have "letter b" done in 2 weeks or so for our summer holiday.

* a wedding gift for some dear friends - can't say what that is on here because they may read it...wink wink.

* and a new tutorial for the "remake, repurpose, refashion" column on nouvelle mama. i luv this little project and hope you all will to. it's done, but i can't post it until next week - so stay tuned!

what are you sewing right now? fill me in, i love hearing what you are all making at the moment!
