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!

Cocktail Dress

Hello my dear friends, here I am again with a cute pattern but even better yet, exquisite fabric that I have been looking for at least a year. Ever since I saw the pattern from McCall 6696 I knew that I wanted to make it just like the one in the cover but I could not find the fabric to make it just like that. One day in a trip to Atlanta, My husband let me down at Joann's Store to see what was new and there I found my fabric and wait! ...... in 70% discount, from $29 dollars I paid $9 dollar per yard.  So believe me, I was really happy that day.  I have treated this dress with so much care and I have enjoyed every part of making it.

Pattern Review: I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…
