Recent projects

 I finished a small batch of purses this week, the hot air balloons are my fave, they are made of a vintage velvet upholstery fabric and they are so soft.























I made Jade and Sage a new dress, I will be making Kinsley one too, I just had to order another yard of fabric to make hers.  Looking at this picture, the pink one looks like the pockets are uneven, they aren't, I just made Jade run in here because she is wearing it so I could check it.  I absolutely love this fabric, it is by Tina Givens and it is called Opal Owl, Kinsley's will be in a blue color :)  The sleeves and pockets are from vintage sheets, I had striped ones to match each dress perfectly.

I've been busy this summer with kids and cleaning, and sewing for shows, among other things.  This blog of mine has taken a back seat to everything, sometimes I just don't have the time or desire to blog.  I will say this though, I LOVE when I get comments, I don't have ads or sponsors for this little blog of mine, so really, my rewards are in your comments :)   I feel like no one comments anymore, I don't know if that is just because my posts are super boring, or if people are just too busy to comment or what.  I get super excited when I get comments, whether it is from someone who has commented before, or a new commenter.  I try my best to reply to every comment, if I haven't replied to your comment, it is probably because you don't have your email linked, so I can't reply :(
Anyways, enough of that.  
I hope you have a lovely weekend spending time with people you love :)

I don't comment because I only like to be sarcastic, and there is nothing to be sarcastic about on your blog. But, I am now convinced that when Julie and I are free from the clutches of Ivy...around July 10th of 2012 and I take her on the much awaited shopping trip, we are coming over to buy a purse, because she likes them a lot. I'm completely serious...in one year.

Lovely! I heart owls so enjoyed looking at all your new creations. The upholstery fabric for the hot air balloon purses is fantastic! I always enjoy your posts and check your blog daily.

The dresses are adorable... I love that fabric. Alas, I have only boys to sew for...

My mom used to make my sisters and me dresses - same fabric, different colors. We loved it. And I love looking at the pictures now.

I think there are less comments everywhere and I'm blaming smart phones. I just read your post on my phone and usually I don't comment on my phone because it's such a pain. But everyone loves comments so I should just get used to it.

I don't comment much, but you are one of my first go to blogs that I check!

Joanna said...

I'll comment! I read every single post you do, and as soon as I see Vintage Fern pop up in google reader, I click on it first! I actually just arrived in SLC today for vacation - we drove cross country all week and arrived this afternoon. Are you doing any shows in the area in the next couple of weeks?!

Those dresses are tooooo cute! I can just imagine little ones running around in them, eating red popsicles with sticky hands :)

I just went to your etsy shop to see if maybe you had put the hot air balloon bags in it (because I love them!). But alas, your shop is closed at the moment...

I'm in the same boat - no ads or sponsors, so comments make my day too. I have found that over this summer (and last), comments are way down. I think it's just the time of year. I have you in my favorites and check in every couple of days to see what you've made.
