Haircuts and Patterns

So I mentioned the that Izzy & Ivy patterns would be here soon – well some of them arrived!  So I had to make one this weekend – of course!  

Ava Tie Top Dress

I made the Ava Tie Top Dress – and Haley loves it! The bottom part is done with my serger, but the instructions give directions for a regular machine too in case you don’t have a serger. I realized a few things while making this. #1. I really need to get more colors of serger thread. Or even one other color. White just isn’t enough anymore.  #2. I love being able to deactivate my blade easily.

Okay, so then after I took this picture, Haley asked if she could get her hair cut. She’s been asking for a long time. So I finally took her to get it done.

With her haircut

She’s a little doll, if you ask me! I am not going to miss the tangles! This morning she brushed it herself with no huge hunks of hair coming out! We are not morning people, so this will make one less thing to fight in those early hours.

Anyway, back to the pattern…. the Izzy & Ivy Patterns all come with a woven label for you to put on (or in) your creation. Isn’t that just a fun little detail?!?!? I love it!

Label included with pattern!

Sadly, or happily, this pattern already (the Ava Tie Top) already sold out. But I have more ordered. There are more Izzy & Ivy patterns that I’m anxious to test out. And ALL patterns this week are 15% off too. (Perfect for holiday sewing too 😉 )

    What serger do you have? I have a babylock but I can’t deactivate the blade :O!

      I have a viking. I’m suprised you can’t rotate your blade out of the way. What babylock model do you have? I guess if you can’t deactivate it, then you’d need to take off the blade….or use you regular machine. 🙂
