Another dress for Kali

I finished up another dress for Kali the other day.  She’s now in less danger of having to go naked due to lack of clothing in her closet.  :)  I have another one halfway cut out, but I’m not sure how fast I’m going to get that one done.  :)




Yes, I realize that it’s totally wrinkled.  Don’t worry, I fixed that!  I swear I own an iron.  I just wanted to get these pictures before she took off with the dress.

A dress for Kali.

Kali has decided that she doesn’t like shorts anymore.  Well, more specifically, denim shorts.  At all.  She prefers dresses, so I figured I better make her some more. 

First dress done.


There’s strap that will tie and rest on her shoulders.  I promise it won’t just be floating on her or staying up with duct tape!  This dress reminds me of Minnie Mouse.  :)  Perfect.

I think I’ll make a few more just like this (well, different fabrics, of course!).  She loves these and that makes me happy.

It needed a companion.

My new basket needed a little basket to go with it.  I have no clue what’s going to go in it, but I’ll figure something out.

A tisket, a tasket, a really cute fabric basket.

Okay, after I made a basket for the girls yesterday, I decided I needed one, too.  I left off the handle and made it shorter and wider.  This one is going on my desk to hold all those dang cords that I have laying around.  You know you have them, too…..the iPod cord, the camera cord, the Garmin cord, the other camera cord, the phone charger, etc. etc.

Camera Straps

A friend asked if I could make her a cover for her camera strap.  Sure, no problem, right?!  Said friend wanted it backed in Minky.  What is Minky you ask?  It’s a fabulously soft fabric that makes you want to roll up in it and go to sleep.  It’s like a cloud.  It is also horrible to sew with!  That stuff has a mind of its own.  You want it to go one way, it goes the other way.  Needless to say, the Minky nearly made me lose what is left of my mind. 

So I threatened it.  Heavily.  With lots and lots of pins.  I finally beat the Minky into submission and now it has become part of a lovely camera strap.  I shall put the Minky back in the closet now, but secretly I want a whole blanket made out of it so I can curl up and take a nap.


Here are the straps.  The one on the left is the final one.  :)  The 2nd one is an extra one I couldn’t resist making.  The 3rd and 4th ones are test ones that are too cute not to send, too.  However, the 3rd one is a bit bigger than the rest….hey, it was a test one!

Look at that cute, soft, unassuming Minky on the back of the strap.  It may look innocent enough, but it’s my sewing room nemesis now.
