My Fat Quarter Addiction Part II

So, after reading my post from yesterday my little sis explained to me, as she gently reminded me that we are all at different levels of craftiness AND are good at different crafty things, that she didn't quite understand what I meant by finishing the seams. I apologize again to those who've been sewing for years but my cheat at finishing seams, if you don't have a serger, is to sew a zig zag stitch right next to a straight stitch, on the outer side of the straight stitch. Did that explanation make sense?

Anyway, here is a pic of Pumpkin wearing her new outfit. I made the shirt using a modified version of a pillowcase top. I just cut out two pieces of fabric, sewed them right sides together, sewed a casing at the top, made a long sash to thread through the casing, and hemmed it. Pretty easy. And, she likes it! She actually likes to wear it. That's saying something as she is quite a rough and tumble kind of gal. (She's a living paradox really because she will wrestling and fling mud in her tutu that she must be wearing 80% of the time.)
