You may be wondering why the heck I've been posting some of the projects I've done. If you've ever been to my house, you know that I have an addiction to fabric. Yes, fabric, and I must at all times have LOTS of it. So much, it's taken up over 5 x-large tubs in my storage room. For all my cleaning, purging and organizing (which according to Ryan only happens to his stuff when he's not home to defend it's purpose), I can't seem to part with most of it. Thus, my new goal has been to do atleast 1 project a week - yes a week. Any less and fabric will continue sitting in tubs waiting to be made into something magnificient (cause all things handmade are magnificient and the fate of all fabric should be so).
So here's the latest little ditty I whipped up yesterday while Berlin took her nap. It's a little big, despite the pattern being a 24 mos size. But atleast she can wear it now as more of a dress and then a top w/ jeans as she gets older. The fabric reminds me of what Maria used to make the children's playclothes in The Sound of Music. Funny thing - this fabric is a curtain panel bought from Urban Outfitters on clearance (for $4.99!) last Fall. It's my current fave fabric of all time. I bought enough to make Berlin's bedding for when we take down the crib, and I made my sister Val a darling cafe apron for Christmas.
Ever so pleased, ever so pleased.
