A little girl's dress!

So most of you know about my little girl, Aadya :)

I have been itching to sew a little something for my girl. Mostly because I have some fabulous memories of wearing home stitched frocks and pretty dresses made by my mum and aunts and I wanted to recreate those memories for Aadya.

It seemed hard as I have no sewing experience other than a few quilted pouches when I was still in school and I had nobody to ask for help at home(my mum & my mum-in-law don't stay anywhere near my place :( )

But I ventured (after going through endless number of tutorials, trying to find the easiest to get started :)) and here is what came of it :)








There's my happy little girl in her new dress :)

The dress is in no way perfect and experts would probably gasp at the errors I made, but I loved every bit of it..right from cutting the fabric to taking these adorable pictures :)

I have a long way to go and lot to learn when it comes to sewing, but atleast it's a start!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
