inquiring minds wanted to know...

Smocked Sundress:
*tutorial from marthastewart.com.
*get enough fabric to go TWICE around your little girl. the elastic thread brings it in quite a bit
*elastic thread can be found in many colors at any fabric/notions store...but it's used in the bobbin, so you shouldn't see it in the finished product.

The Shirt Dress:
*tutorial from dana-made-it
*use at least a men's size large shirt for a 2T-3T dress, long sleeves preferred
*i would have made the neck part of the sleeves a little bit smaller (not 10 inches - maybe 8 or so).
*ironing as you go is KEY

Square {ish} bottomed hobo lunchbag:
*tutorial from sewing notions
*ironing it down into the triangle makes it MUCH easier!

enjoy!!
