weekend fun

I didn't get as much sewing done this weekend as I hoped, but I manage to get a few things crossed off my to do list.

First of all I made this book page banner that will be used in our sweetheart banquet we are having at church this friday. I'm using lots of book pages in the decor as well as fresh fern fronds & little white lights. I'm really looking forward to seeing it all & hope it comes together as well as it looks in my head! :)

I also managed to finish the outfit for Olivias character/occupation dress up day at school this week! She wanted to dress up as a nurse so I made her this vintage inspired red cross uniform.
I used a simple pattern for the dress & made up an apron to go with it. The outfit is completed with a felt nurse hat/crown. She wanted to carry a clip board, so we found a small one of those this week as well. I think I'm looking forward to seeing her in it on dress up day, as much as she is looking forward to wearing it!!:) 

While I didn't get that much sewing done this weekend, I have been stalking my partner in the modern scrappy bits swap & trying to decide what I'll make for her! It's always a fun time!

I'm going to link up with Chase & her weekending! Hope you are having a fabulous one!

Happy sewing!
