The cup cake dress

I insist, it's spring
Although there is still snow outside of my window
I couldn't resist
The eager to make something
Fresh & Fun
So this is it

I really wish V could model it
It will look SO much better on her
But we have to wait for the real spring
Or summer
What's it feels like at your place?
It's currently 40F ... Still a jacket weather ...

Quick Bib Tutorial -Recyled from oneies

I love recyle
Esp. baby/kids cloth
They out grow everything SO fast

This was Victoria at10 months
7 month later
I finally decided that she is never going to fit into that
No matter how much I like to see her wearing it
So I found another way to have her wearing it

I love to see things shine in their second life
And I also love to save money
If you too love to do that
Here is a quick tutorial

1. Fold shirt/oneies in half and cut along the line

2. Fix it to the shape you like

3. Turn right side together and sew the top line

4. Add a water prove lining (optional)
5. Sew a bias type along the edge (Add 5-6" on each side depend on your toddler's age)

All done!

A dress for spring

Another snow storm
12" within 24 hours
Feels like winter is all over again
After the nice break last week

So I was snowed in
No work means more sewing
And the only thing I can do to escape the snow
Is sewing something Springish

Here is what it looks so far

This is a Simplicity pattern
DH picked it up for me
I am not completely in love with it
What can I do to add that blink???
Also, The waste line is little too big for V
Hmmm... how do I fix that?!

It is THE perfect print for Eastern, isn't?
It's got the colors, eggs and bunny rabbits
I just have to figure something out
