More flag blocks + Olympic fever

Official Olympics nerd right here. In 2002 the Winter Olympics came to my home town, Salt Lake City. I had a 3-yr-old and a nursing baby at the time so I didn't attend a single sporting event, but we did take in the atmosphere downtown and let me tell you - it's magic. Celebration of hard work and the unique cultures and traditions of the nations of the world juxtaposed with the brotherhood of man - the Olympic spirit is tangible. As soon as that cauldron went out, things were back to normal and it was gone. Combine my Olympics die-hard-ness with my favorite city on the planet and I just might spontaneously-combust. So in honor of the parade of nations, I've been making more flag quilt blocks. Notre Dame (as in The Hunchback of), Monet, and crepes. Quilting_guide. Using a Rotary Cutter.

How to… make a Pillow Case Dress for Beginners

Thanks for visiting! How to Make a Pillow Case Dress for Beginners, is part of the Make It Easy Series. Visit Hello Beautiful for the intro post or read below for more info.

If you are looking at getting your first sewing machine, this is a great Beginners Sewing Machine by Brother and currently at a GREAT deal on Amazon! I decided to add a “contrasting border” at the bottom of the dress – if you want life simple – don’t make the border. My little girl is a big 18mth old, so this is probably for a 2yrs old (she is 85cm, approx 33″). Materials: Fabric approx 20″ x 21″ if using one piece (or 17″ x 19.5″ main fabric, 4″ x 22″ border fabric), thread, ribbon, scissors, pins, iron, ironing board & sewing machine Step 1: Cut your fabric.

It makes writing a long tutorial so much easier when I know people are actually interested in having it! As I was making the felt food for my shopping book, I realized my three-year-old is a little beyond the felt food for this. To step it up a notch, I actually made soft cards with the picture and the word to help introduce a little educational take on this project. I will share those with you, too! Oliver+SLazyDaysSkirt.
