Easter Dress, etc…

I had a blast sewing my daughter's Easter dress this year. She went to the fabric store with me and chose the fabric herself. I then secretly sewed a matching dress for her American Girl doll. She loved them both!

I also finally got around to sewing her a pink scripture tote. I had made up this tote pattern several years ago when her biggest brother was little and had made a navy blue one. Each of the boys used it in turn, and when she was old enough, she was using it too. But I thought, she needs a pink one! So, I made it for her in time for Easter and she loves it! She has always loved taking her scriptures to church, but now she gets to do it in style! ; )

I wish I had taken some better pictures of the scripture tote… and no, I can’t do it now… Um… see, it got dirty and we so we washed it, and well, I had neglected to pre-wash the inner canvas-y type fabric, and well, it shrunk. So, the whole tote is a little messed up. I will have to sew her a new one!

And, I'm linking this up with Such A Sew and Sew's April Finishes Linky Party.
