Hair Curlers

so after scouring the internet and discovering all of the wonderful sewing blogs out there in blog world; I found tutorials, projects and all sorts of inspiration to  me to finally pull that brand new sewing machine out  it's box.  I knew instantly I wanted to make these curlers the minute I saw  them, they so reminded me as I was a little girl sitting in front of the TV in my nightgown while my older sister put pink curlers in my hair before bed.  I made a few sets as gifts, so cute, and everyone loved them.  I first found them on she  has a great tutorial on How to Wrap Your Hair in Curlers
the tutorial on how to make these cute curlers are here:

When I found this tutorial Authentic Toddler Wear at Moda's Bake shop I was like WOW I want to sew with THAT fabric! I never knew they made such beautiful fabrics, (since I've discovered Amy Butler and OMGosh I want to buy it all!), since I had no sewing experience and no imagination yet on what it could look like with other fabrics LOL I bought the same fabric as the tutorial but made a few tweeks here and there like making it for a 1st grader instead of a toddler and putting her initial on it, which she thought was so cool. I love the finished dress and Katelynn does too, and when she wears it, people always asks her about it, she says, "my aunt made it for me" :), now that's worth sewing!
