Proof I have been up to crafty adventures!

Although I have been silent on my blog I have in fact been up to quite a few crafty adventures!
Proof can be found here at my sister's blog. I made a "Matilda Jane" inspired set of outfits for my two nieces Audrey (one year old) and Celia (Age 4). This was a project that pushed my envelope a little bit. I typically shy away from projects that I have to mix patterns on. Mixing patterns usually over whelms me but knowing the recipients wouldn't be judgemental helped tremendously!
I don't have any better pictures as our good camera was off with my husband. The first outfit is similar to the knot dress with the "bloomer" like pants that seem to be all the rage. The second coordinating outfit is a modified a-line jumper with matching "bloomers". I like the fact they aren't identical just share the same fabrics. I love the a-line jumper because as Audrey grows she can where it as a top. When I had my own business this was a customer favorite for that reason.
Hope this finds everyone sticking to their resolutions! I found and awesome project to show case mine and hope to share this in the future.

  1. Darling little outfits! I'm getting the itch to do a little sewing for my 7 year old Gracie and I saw a cute pattern in Joann's flyer that will be on sale this week, so I might have to whip up a few cute things for her to wear! So fun sewing for little ones. As you said, they are not judgmental! That does make a difference!
