I’m actually a very lazy crafter

There are a lot of times, actually most times(when it comes to sewing) I choose to do the simplest of simple things instead of going big with something absolutely fabulous.  Even though what I’m about to tell you here isn’t really going big, but yesterday I really wanted to make a peasant style bodice 3 tiered dress.  Grant it, this isn’t flashy or fancy but I know it will be cute on someone’s little girl.  Instead I chickened out.  I didn’t want to use my brain.

See I have a small issue.  I cannot use patterns.  I’ve tried believe me.  The whole following lines and cutting that hard to deal with paper…UGH it’s awful and it annoyed me to no end the few times I’ve tried.  I am sure it doesn’t help that I have a lack of patience.  It’s all been used up on my kids.  So since don’t or rather can’t use patterns, I have to think a little bit more and I am just too tired most times to use that extra brain energy. 

So yesterday, instead of taking some time to work out the measurements and figure out the cut, I decided to go more simple with this. 

Tie Shoulder Top in Valori Wells Sole Brown and Pink

I was quite familiar with the style as I had made 2 of these tops for Alyssa (with pants included) so I just let my hands, that surprisingly have a great memorySmile, do the work. No brain power required.

I need to find a better name for this top hehehe

Not too bad I think.

Also I’ve been on a bib making rampage.  I have so much terry and end of fabrics that they just must go.  So I am offering them at ridiculously low prices.  Here are some of them.

All are $3.00 – $3.50 plus S/H
