Jr. Picasso Paint Bar Session

At the fair, we won a couple gift certificates to attend the local community center's "Jr. Picasso" painting class.  It was a 1 ½ hour class and they provided everything we needed.  Emily and I went together and had some fun.  Neither of us were completely satisfied with how our paintings turned out, but they weren't bad considering that it was the first time for either of us painting other than watercolors.
This is the picture they showed online of what we were going to paint

2014 Summer Kids Clothes Week: Day Seven

The final day is the wrap dress for Sarah.  I also altered her dress to be an actual wrap dress.

2014 Summer Kids Clothes Week: Day Six

This day brings a wrap dress for Emily.  I altered the pattern to actually be a wrap dress.  The pattern had a zipper in the back and the wrap was sewn down.

2014 Summer Kids Clothes Week: Day Three

Next is a matching tier skirt for Sarah in her favorite color, blue.  This is also from "Simplicity 4206:  Sewing Patterns for Dummies", but I had to make a bigger size since my pattern didn't go big enough.

2014 Summer Kids Clothes Week: Day Two

The piece for today is a simple tier skirt for Emily in pink, her favorite color. ☺This is from "Simplicity 4206:  Sewing Patterns for Dummies".  It had a lot of instructions on just how to sew (since it's a 'for Dummies' pattern) that I had to skip.
