I have been busy sewing lately and not so busy blogging. I blame this on Instagram! If you follow on me Instagram you might have seen these pictures before.
I spent the morning at YVR airport with my eldest daughter who is travelling alone to the UK for the summer. Many mixed feelings on this, but since I was sat waiting for the plane to leave the ground I decided to do some catch up!
Yesterday when packing she was going to stuff a handful of friendship strings and bits into her carry on bag! I could see the problem with this, whilst she was blissful unaware of the mess she would have a couple of hours into her flight! So last night I whipped up a mini drawstring bag for her using the tutorial by In Color Order. This is a great tutorial so quick and simple!

I also made her a summer top using some fabric she had seen in the shop a while back. I hope it's sunny and warm in the UK at the moment!! This is based on a top that Old Navy had but not in the colour she wanted. Shearing the top aside, this was a quick top to make!
The youngest daughter has been doing a dance camp this week. Singing and dancing to everything Frozen. She has had a great time, as would any 5 year old girl I'm sure. So last weekend I played with sequins, satin and netting! Yuck! The outcome though was this Queen Elsa dress that she loves.

Had my fill of clothes making now. Back to the quilting :)
