Popover for some bugs

Little one had to stay home when the big one got to go camping with gram...so I let her pick through the fabrics I have and make some dresses.  She found this flashy one with butterflies, dragonflies, and lightening bugs that I'm sure one of them picked from the remnant bin, and there was enough for a dress for her and her doll. Did the Oliver+S popover dress again, such a quick sew and while it's still a little nightgowny for me, it makes a comfy dress for summer, that's for sure!  Definitely looks different in this than the Ikea fabric ones.  I also tried out my bias tape maker...thinking a wider one would be useful as well as the 1/4" was pretty narrow and a tich fussy to get sewed on.  She wasn't real thrilled with the yellow pompoms at first, but after seeing both dresses finished, she's pretty happy.  Whew!

Floral Linen Super Tote

Finally worked my way through the super tote for my mom. Little late for Mother's Day, but...

I tried out a few new things on this; I installed piping, my first magnetic snap, which is super fun to play with, and I did the recessed zipper, which will hopefully be a good thing for her to keep things solidly inside the bag.  I did a few of the little things I like to add at times, label, little heart ribbon tag, and a metal ring inside for clipping keys.

Love how it turned out, hope she will as well!
