Accuquilt GO! Challenge – funky flowers

accuquilt challenge 2015
With this month’s challenge I used the FUNKY FLOWER die
A die I’ve had for a long time (I think it was one of the first ones I ever bought)
Then I found a sewing pattern Simplicity 4927
Simplicity It's So Easy girl's dress 4927
I cut out the pattern pieces roughly and ironed on low heat, then used Swedish tracing paper

And traced the size and pieces I needed

Sonja wanted a green dress and picked out this funky fabric with my help ;)

Then I decided to make white pockets with orange funky flowers and added heat n bond to the back of the fabrics and ran thru my go BIG cutter, easy peasy!

I then ironed the pieces onto the pockets and accounted for the seam allowance

and then button hole stitched around in matching thread colors

and I sewed the dress together :)
-those small sleeves were HARD since they were so small, too small to even go around the base after I removed the outer part of the base of the sewing machine.
