Mandy K Designs XOXO Dress!

A couple weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to test a new pattern from Mandy K DesignsThe XOXO dress! I am excited to announce that this pattern has now been released for all to sew!

I fell in love with this pattern! It was my first time sewing a pattern by Mandy K Designs, and I was impressed by the amount of details included in the tutorial. I am confident that someone who is more on the beginner side could complete this dress, as the directions she provides are very clear. What an opportunity to learn new techniques!

Who doesn’t love a pattern with options?? This one does not disappoint! There are options for tunic/dress length, ruffled/non-ruffled sweetheart top, rouched ruffle, traditional ruffle. Sizes range from 12 months-14, AND she even includes a doll size!

And the corset back! This dress should fit nicely for a while! Check out the pictures on the sales page, it even layers well!

We made the tunic length with a traditional gathered ruffle. I can’t wait to try out the other options, though. How cute does Miss Jessa look?!?!

You can snag a copy of the pattern for just $5 through November 9! Get it HERE!

Great Deal!!

I just wanted to quickly share a great deal that I got today, that maybe you can snag too! A friend of mine, who lives in Texas, told me about a deal she got on quilting fabric bundles at a store called Tuesday Morning. Naturally, I had to go to our local store and see if they had some on clearance too, and they did!! I spent about $35, and got a ton of great stuff. Some of it will be used for quilting, but a lot of this can be used for clothing, so I am super excited!!

Here’s everything I got. Such a great deal!

fat quarters…. I love the polka dots in this one. I may have to find something to make for Linnaea out of fat quarters!

Fat quarters

8 fat quarters. This actually matches some quilting material I already had, so this will be turned into a quilt soon!

1 yard

1 yard of each fabric

1 yard of each fabric

Two jelly rolls…
These alone are worth $35.

So, if you have a Tuesday Morning near you, go take a look! Hard to pass up these deals!
