Look What I Did

 For MONTHS our girls doll stroller has been falling apart. I keep safety pinning it and rigging it so it might stay put because Ruth freaks out when the baby won't stay put because the fabric is falling apart... anyway for a few weeks it has been just naked bars. The other night I told Larry if I could find the fabric part that came off I was going to take it apart, use it as a pattern and make a new one. I found it this morning and went to town! I was so excited at out easy it was and how quick I finished. It took me less than an hour and I could have been faster but I have 7 kids under 5 at my house today! It turned out totally cute, hopefully stronger then the cheep crappy one that came on the stroller! RUTH LOVES IT! She won't let anyone else touch it!
 I love it when what I have in my mind works out. I am not the most confident sewer but I have improved a ton over the last year. I have really made it a goal to become good at sewing, I made Amelia's baptism dress, and several other major projects. But this one I just winged it and was SO happy with the out come! I didn't have to go buy anything, just used cute fabric and ribbon I had on hand and took the buckle off the old one that had fallen apart! LOVE IT!
