A Dress For Barbie Malcolm is attending a classmate's birthday party so I needed to come up with a gift. My favourite thing to give - especially to a child - is a book. But I wanted to include a little something for play as well. I was told the birthday girl loves anything Barbie, but I figured she likely has lots of Barbies already. Every girl likes a new dress every once in a while, right? I searched the internet for a pattern and found this cute one here. Barbie is ready for a night on the town.

Keeping it Simple: How to make bias tape {Melly Sews} Hello Keeping it Simple Readers! Today I'm going to show you a trick for making bias tape, and how to sew it on. First of all, what is bias tape? Bias tape is fabric that is cut on the diagonal , then has the raw edges folded to the wrong side. Single fold bias tape has the edges folded once, double fold has the edges folded twice. It can be used to finish seams or add a decorative touch to a garment, or both. Bias tape tips are usually available in the quilting tools section of the fabric store. Mark out your jig - it needs to be twice the width you want your final single fold bias tape to be, or 4 times the width you want your double fold tape to be. Cut your jig out, and also cut out a piece of cardboard that is the same length, but 1/8" less wide than you want your finished bias tape to be. With an x-acto knife, a utility razor or even carefully using scissors, score but do not cut the lines you marked. Now fold up your edges. Sew right in the fold of the bias tape.
