Yes, I own one of these...

...but I rarely use it.
(although, doesn't this picture look so cozy, you just want to snuggle up with that machine?
I could sew all day if my life looked all soft and blurry like this.)

As you know, Domestic Craftiness isn't part of my skill set.
Notice the instruction manual sitting right next to the machine.
It might as well be in Chinese.

I didn't inherit the crafting or sewing gene from anyone on my family tree.
But Ashley did.

What I did inherit is some gator fabric from a neighbor.
And Ashley was set on using it for something.

So we used this pattern and made two dresses for her American Girl dolls.
Now they can cheer with the best of them when it's game time.

 And just in case you can't tell what's going on here, 
the dolls are having a birthday party on a boat.
With a gator theme, of course.
Cuz that's how we roll here in The Swamp.


  1. Those lucky dolls! :) The dresses look great! Maybe you should stop pretending that you can't sew, Gaylene! :)

    1. Sure Dasha. If you blur your eyes a little and don't look too much at the seams, we can all pretend I'm good at sewing...
