I've always been a fan of Peter Rabbit. Must be something about getting into trouble and being rescued in the end that speaks to all of us. :) Here is a little something to keep you inspired for Easter sewing! This sweet little outfit appeared in Sew Beautiful Magazine issue #113 in 2007. The outfit was made out of light blue cotton chambray and white handkerchief linen, using pattern #113. The embroidery design was adapted from Creative Needle Magazine (Nov/Dec 2003 issue). Michie'

What a nice surprise to see how Connie Palmer used two of my patterns for Easter Outfits! The romper was made from pattern #133 and the dress was made from pattern #131. The embroidery is "Chicks and Bows" by Kathy Drew Designs. Kits for both outfits are available from Farmhouse Fabrics. Have you started your Easter sewing or are you in total denial that it is only about 6 weeks away? I would like to know! Michie'
The Blue Gingham Bishop
I gave you a peak of this blue gingham bishop in a previous blog, with the promise of sharing the smocking design. I had not forgotten. The problem is that it takes me almost as long to graph the design as it does to smock the dress! I am often asked, how long it takes me to smock an outfit. I am a pretty fast smocker, so this pretty little dress was about, "two movies", or this week that would translate to several Olympic events. Between the Olympic games, and the winter weather that most…

Another Quick Gift
A quick gift for my daughter's girlfriend. A sweet little sun suit for a sweet boy born in July. This will be for next spring, it is a size 12 months. Featured on the bib front is a machine appliqued whale. Don't you love his a cute smile? The machine embroidery design is a Sew Many Designs/Junebug Designs combo pack called Whale Ahoy. The pattern I used was Baby Playsuit by Creations By Michie'. It works up super fast. I think it took about as long to trace as it did to sew. It is made from…
The Bunny Dress
What a joy and privilege to sew for children. A lot of planning and time goes into a dress made by Nana, but it would be hard to decide which one of us gets the most pleasure from it. She loved her bunny dress which made Nana very happy indeed. Michie'
