We Sew Love Korea

One of the things I love about Korea is the fabric.  It is so inexpensive to buy really cute fabric.  I wish I were faster at getting things accomplished...but hey, I have lots of facebook to keep up with, the blog, and scrapbooking, so at least I have finished a few projects.  Here's a taste...there will be more to follow because with fabric being roughly $2.50/yd, I have many ideas and projects lined up.  Even a little something for Mommy someday!  :)

Abby is in dancing mode.  
She picked out the kitty cat fabric (NOT Daddy's favorite!), and I used a pattern for a pillow case dress.  The ribbon is also extremely cheap.  I bought a HUGE (and I mean HUGE) roll of the black ribbon seen here for 7,000won.  THAT is a deal.  I will have black ribbon for years to come!

Tutu T-Shirt...I have made 2 of these so far.  My friend Charlotte's mom had sent a newspaper article with pictures and a website address to buy one of these.  I went out to the website & they wanted $40 or $50 for one.  WHAT?!  Well, since I am a cheap-o & because I always think, "hey, I could do that," I gave it a try. 

 The one pictured is the first one I made; it was for Baby Grace's birthday present!  I put the tulle on the top of the t-shirt & covered it with a cute ribbon.  With the babies, I just worried about the tulle rubbing their legs.  Turned out cute!  Abby got the next one & she wore it at her dance recital (up next on the blog!). Beks is still waiting for hers!  Poor second born.

I found the tutorial doing a google search.  Can I tell you how much I love the internet?  I absolutely love this blog now, and it makes me happy every time I go there.

Go check out Joy's Hope...I just know it'll make you smile too! 

From a Heather Bailey pattern, these dresses and pants are my favorite things I have made so far (I also want this pattern!!).  They turned out great & I can't wait to make the other pieces from the pattern.  There is another dress and a skirt that look like they'll be so cute...we'll see how long it takes me!  

Bloggy love,

Very cute! When does Grandma Lene get her outfit?? Can't say you have the happiest little models! They are the cutest - can't wait to see them. Beks is getting to be a little girl - where did the baby go??
