This is the post wherein I catch up my readers on all my crafty news from my 4 month long blog hiatus. Which was not intentional, I assure you!
Hmmm, where to start? Well, I continued the tradition of making Madeline's Easter dress. I really, really love this pattern (you can find it here)! Will also wore his first bow tie, which was totally adorable, if I do say so myself.
I made Maddie an Easter Bonnet Headband , inspired by this post. She loved it and it almost made up for not having a hat. I had a better picture of it, but I can't find it...
Maddie recycled her Halloween costume for Plow Days this year and as I mentioned before, me and my cousin made a boatload of stick horses to sell. I also made about 2 dozen bonnets. I simplified my Sunday Bonnet so I could crank them out quickly. Fun, busy day!!
I revisited my most popular blog post of all time, the reversible sundress and made a matching pair for two little sisters. I started working on patterns for sizes 3 months - 6 years, plus some revisions to the fit that I think work a little better than the original. For now, that's still on the to-do list!
I made this little old fashioned set for customer's grandchild for her school play. I used this pattern for the apron, but opted to use regular elastic instead of shirring the neck and arm holes. I love this fabric!!
This is the little peasant style dress I made Maddie for the 4th of July. I'm in love with this style! So easy to make and so easy to wear! I have an extra-special peasant dress all cut out for her that I'm dying to start sewing. I'll definitely share when I'm finished.
My biggest project this year was completing Will's bedroom. I made crib bumpers, crib skirt, curtains, refinished a dresser and tracked down some cool wall art. I also made something very cool out of this pallet...can you guess what?
It definitely needs it's own post, but I need to clean his room before I take pictures. So in other words, don't hold your breath or anything. ;)
I think that's about all the crafty related news I have! I always slow down a bit in the summer months, but I have so many, many projects (that's a lot, Pinterest!!) that I want to make, so I'll have to start putting the pedal to the medal come fall. Speaking of Pinterest, you can follow me here.
In the meantime, we're have a blast this summer, spending lots of time at the pool and the beach and making lots of memories with our two little munchkins.
