guest blogger nicole: "i did it!"


yes, i promised a tour of the boys’ bathroom next but i had to interrupt the house tour to show what i accomplished. remember my washed and ready stack of fabric… just waiting for my sweet little future kindergartner… taunting – dare i say mocking me – every time i walked into my basement… remember? of course you do. well, i bucked up and powered out a skirt and dress and let me tell you – I AM HOOKED! it was so much fun… so gratifying… and so worth the effort. needless to say, i have been patting myself on the back. without further adieu, here is my cutie pie (with bed head hair) wearing her “made with love” creations.

the tank top:

the dress:

try this pattern ladies… easy and fun!

we have hung these out of tyler’s reach (per her request) so she won’t be tempted to wear them until school starts. drew wants me to make him a dress too and hawken wants to try these on. i guess i need to search for a fun boy pattern. for now, capes will have to do.

up next… a skirt in a funky combo!

see ya!

    I have two girls and a boy – my son always wants whatever I make for them. So sweet! I find a new pair of jammies for him usually does the trick and it’s quick and easy!

    Beautifully done. Wish I had my “little” girls again so I could try this. Maybe when grandkids start appearing. :)
