Butterick 4967 in Purple Ankara

I was on a weekend break a while ago when a darling little asked to be made a dress from some lovely purple Ankara fabric. I wanted to make a pretty number for the pretty girl. I remembered seeing the Butterick 4967  on ZoeEden designs.


So I got the Butterick 4967 and made view A

A blouse & a flower

The NewLook 6057 view c produced for me a nice top and flower to wear on jeans.

The fabric is African prints in 2 different shades of brown and gold. I love this fabric.

I added the fabric flower to the top to give it my own twist to the style.  The tutorial

on making the fabric flower can be found on the link below


All in a name

And her name shall be called bitterness and suffering, for that was the condition of feeling of her father and nation at large. In Hebrew the name Mary means: “wished-for-child; rebellion; sea of bitterness”. With the challenges that life had brought her, the name Mary reminds us of her believe and fearless obedience.

What you have been called by others is not the important thing. You are the one who can give the actual meaning to your name. When your name is called, what will it remind us of?……………………
