Serendipity

Serendipity - a fortunate happenstance. 

When the 2014 Hoffman Challenge fabric came out last fall I immediately had an idea for my doll.  I bought the fabric,  gathered trims and props to fit my idea. 

Alas............ I couldn't put my idea together into a finished , travel worthy doll.  I was thinking that I may not enter the 2014 Hoffman Challenge. 
But.....
           Serendipity!

 
I have a new idea and I think I can get it finished in time to enter!

Birthday Dress

Another birthday, another dress.

 
 
I am so excited to use this starry fabric I found in Portland several years ago.  Also from my stash I found a plaid with the same colors as the stars fabric.   Bonus - this dress doesn't have a zipper!!
 
Just have the hand work to do to finish. 
 
From the plaid I made a skirt and a purse trimmed with the stars. 
 
One more dress is cut out and ready to be assembled.  I'll be sewing a lot this week to be done by Saturday's birthday party!
