Bedding Set For my Son

The Quilt
Hello my dear friends and readers, finally I am back at my Blog after some months of only appearing in the Julie Harris Creations Facebook and in the Instagram account; The reason behind all that is because finally we got to moved to our new house and organizing and putting everything in place, just me and a 4 years old toddler is a lot. So here we are! making the new bed decor for my son, which I have managed to make it myself ever since he was born and now that he is a toddler was time for a new face and bigger bed.  

I have to tell you this is my first Quilt ever so in the pictures below, I hope you enjoy my experience, the result of my hard work and also some tips and sources that made all this possible.

As usual the information:

size of the quilt: full
Dr Seuss fabric: JoAnn Stores
blue and red fabric: JoAnn Stores 
batting for a quilt: warm and white full size
spray adhesive brand :  spray and bond

My mitered corners I learned it from a class I took with Eileen Roche in Craftsy: the machine embroidery quilt. I can say it was an amazing class and another option for quilts.

And Yes, I did all my quilt binding by hand, I fully enjoyed and you can not see the stitches in the other side of the quilt, which makes it very clean.

Information for a continuous bias binding, I learned from this girl Whitney sews in YouTube.

The serpentine stitch is the one that I used for the quilt, I only had to feed the fabric as if I would be sewing in straight line and the machine did all the job for me.  I am going to try to upload my short video about it. however that stitch I made it as wide and long as possible to cover that big quilt in a home sewing machine and the experience was great.  I loved it and I am happy with the result.

Now all I need is to work in the window treatment of his room and get his bedroom finished!  I hope this post come in handy to many of you.

May God Bless you and have a nice day!

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!

Summer Outfit!

Beach Time

Hello dear friends, today with my last post for summer outfits, at least in my plans.  However, sewing summer outfits is something I do during the whole year because I am always waiting for cute patterns and wonderful inspirations to sew more beach outfits.  And yes! at the end that is what it matters to me, hot weather and beach;  It might has to do a lot because I am a tropical bird. I was born in a warm city with tropical weather in Colombia.
So for this last summer project I have made the pattern M7756 from McCall pattern company; it is portrayed as a not bra outfit, so it might not be convenient for  every body's taste. however in Colombia there is a saying that in English it does not rhyme: " the fashion trends are not uncomfortable" aka " la moda no incomoda".  anyways, it is not really true, walking the streets of Colombia you can find lots of people that could use fashion etiquette for certain body types.
here it is my outfit:
