Topsy Twirly Skirts

So.....After taking a bit of a hiatus, I am back in full swing and the sewing machines are smokin!! I've had so much fun making these cute little Topsy Twirly Skirts! The pattern is still being written and the sizes perfected! Hoping to have all that finished soon!  
It all started with this pink/black skirt for my special little 2-year-old neighbor Piper!

Project in the works...

WOW FINALLY!! Can't believe I haven't posted a thing since March but I'm excited to be getting back in the swing!! We have been a little pre-occupied with some new friends that moved here a year ago from Louisiana who have 3 ADORABLE little kiddos, which basically means that we are "grandparents-in-training"!  Having little ones in the house again is so much fun! As a result of them being part of our lives I have been doing some sewing for my new little 2-year-old Piper. She has been the inspiration for my new project. Thought you might like to see a bit of a peek...still working on sizes and writing the pattern so not ready to show the whole skirt (ooops now you have a hint)! Back later with full pics!! Have a great weekend!!

Been busy sewing

I've been working on a few samples and a custom order lately, even though the Fall weather hasn't exactly felt like Fall weather, which usually puts me in a sewing mood. Just a few snaps to prove I've actually been sewing!

Two new patterns are in the house!!

Well we finally are proud to announce that Pom Poms and Polkadots has 2 new patterns! After receiving requests for a full apron, we now have My Full "Charm"ing Apron pattern which features a bib, is fully reversible and can be pieced together using 5" pre-cut charm squares. Instructions are also included for making this apron with a solid bib and skirt instead of pieced.

Torie Jayne has the most adorable stuff on her blog and I just couldn't resist sharing this bit of lovliness. She hails from the UK and her style is very pastel-y and sweet. Her hallway would cheer anyone entering or exiting her home!
By the way, we have 2 new patterns coming out this week so stay tuned for a "show and tell"!
