The Tale of the the Fairy Tale Princess

This week I've made a sweet Cinderella set. I have to say that I LOVE this new little top pattern designed by Wendy of(BellaMarieBoutique). I saw it a week or so ago and knew that I had to find it! Well, the best part of finding it was that it was instantly downloadable from YouCanMakeThis. What could be better than finding what you're looking for AND being able to have it in your hands in just minutes! You'll definitely see this style from me again. I can see so many possibilites with it. The skirt if my favorite Farbenmix Insa.

Oh, and when I began to work on this one, I discoved I needed more of the light pink and blue dot fabric. Since I have to drive a distance to purchase fabric AND my hubby was just by coincidence going to the town I bought it from, I took advantage of it. I called the quilt shop, described the print and read the selvege with the info so they could find it. They cut and packaged it then had it ready for him to pick up. Easy, smeasy...I had the pattern in my hands in minutes and the fabric delivered right to my sewing room door!
You can find this sweet Cinderella here.

Miss B comes over to hang out with me a few times a week. Most of the time we are in the sewing room. She has me lower the ironing board to make her 'work station' and sits on a little stool to begin creating. Her tools are usually the scotch tape dispenser, scissors, pencils and her favorite thing...the trash can. She digs to find the treasured leftovers and begins to create. Well, last week she saw my sketch book and asked me what the drawing was. I told her it was for the a Cinderalla set. We both continued working and in a few minutes she brought the sketch book to me. Evidently, she did not like the design I had drawn because this it what she showed me. NO was to my idea of sweet ruffled pants and the design was changed and her colors selected. It looks to me that she has a future in fashion design!
