Sophie Tunics

I bribed the girls with these...(Target boots!)to get them to model the Sophie tunics...but the pics all came out blurry! Sorry about the quality! I used the flash in the first pic and turned it off for the second but neither one came out clear. I love the blue corduroy in the dress length. I think I'll do more of these. It looks so comfortable! All three girls loved them, although Taylor (in the black) thought that hers was a little stiff. The pink corduroy on the contrast was a softer, lighter weight than the thicker black. I should have made the black the contrast instead. I'm hoping it will soften after a few washes. And of course, we couldn't leave the little man out...I think it's time to make something for him!

I won something!

That means someone actually reads this! picked ME as the Link of the Week! Yea!! $20 gift certificate online! QuiltHome is my absolute favorite online fabric store. And believe me, I have tried a lot of them!! I am lucky enough to live within driving distance of The Fabric Shack, which is a great store in Waynesville, OH. but it's still about 45 min. away. so I don't get there very often. I find that ordering online is much easier. There's also something about getting that package in the mail! I have had such great service from QuiltHome, that I rarely buy from anyone else now. Service is a big issue to me (probably from my Flight Attendant days!) and when I find a business that stands out I will always go back. The service from Quilt Home is by far, the best. So, thank you to the ladies there for picking me as the Link of the Week and I will be ordering again soon! I finished some Sophie Tunics but I had trouble getting these ladies to model. These are my girls. They like my clothes but don't always want to try them on for pictures. Imagine that! So I'll give you a sneak peek at the tunics and them I'll bribe them with something after school today to make them cooperate! The blue is a really soft corduroy with my new Sis Boom from, the black is corduroy, but not very soft. I don't think I'll use it again. The pink is like a faux suede or something. Great fabric for a tunic. I bought the Patricia Tunic pattern for myself and hope to get it started today. Hopefully, I'll have more pictures soon.And these are the flannels from QuiltHome that will soon become jammies! Thanks again to QuiltHome and thanks for checking in!
