Yes I'm still around. After all those blog posts right after one another even just a week off seems like a long time. I blame Harry. I spent most of my free time last week re-watching all the Harry Potter movies with Athena to get ready for the finale. Which we loved! But I did manage to get a few things done, and look who learned how to sew! Athena took a beginning sewing class at Joann's and made this pillow case all by herself. She said she loves sewing and has big plans to make all kinds of things now. Hope I don't have to arm wrestle her for time on the sewing machine.
I did manage to get a few projects done between all the Potter viewing last week. I made this dress, headband and flip-flops for Athena. The dress is straightforward McCall's pattern 6316. It was cute just as it was so I didn't make any changes to it. The headband is just my own pattern I made up form trial and error. And the flip-flops were taken from this tutorial here. I didn't have quite the amount of fabric it called for though so I'm not sure how long they will last.
