Summer Sewing Rushes by!

 This summer I decided to try out a design on a tech shirt. I am running the Princess Half Marathon in February at WDW and wanted a shirt to show I was training for it. I found a design someone posted on facebook and had a great friend digitized it for me and VOILA! Instant cute training shirt! I decided to do my first one on the back so when people are passing me (yes, slow runner here), they can read it!

Well, after posting a pic for my shirt on a running page on facebook, I got a ton of requests to make them! I have made at least 25 of them so far and am still going strong! I have also made them on different colors as the local supply of pink shirts slowly got depleted! Here it is on black! I like this one!

 I then got a request for a set of them for a bachelorette party! These came out so cute and I love the pics I got to see of them from the DL princess half!

  A special one for the bride to be! Hers had her future name on the back of the shirt!

In between all the craziness I made myself a bag! I found this pattern on the internet here Great Bag Pattern. It has 2 zippers but were really easy to do (and I hate zippers!) I am planning on making a Disney version and a special version for DD.
 In August I went to NC to meet a bunch of friends that sew. Some I had never met IRL before but have known for years through the Disboards and facebook. I had a fantastic time! During the meet we exchanged AG doll outfits. This is the one I made for the swap! It is a doll version of the Feliz, but much easier and less time consuming!
Also in August I participated in a launch on facebook. I made 2 outfits for the launch. This first one I actually sold 3 of! It is one of my favorite dresses so far. There are 6 princesses on the dress and each princess has her fabric displayed before her!

My other launch outfit is this great Star Wars set! It is a swing top that is closed in the back, and a  patchwork twirl skirt! This one didn't sell yet and is still for sale! 
I am working on a new running shirt design and some new ideas! Come visit me on my facebook page at Sara Ashley Boutique! I will be having a give-a-way coming up and details will be posted here and on facebook!
