Poor Lenore, I feel like I've hardly sewn her anything.
My mom has recently brought a lot of clothes to the girls when she visits.
This is a blessing.
And it has helped me be able to sew something for Lenore instead of focusing on making summer clothes for Kai. Lenore needs things because she doesn't have hand-me-downs to pull from.
We thought we were done having kids, and she has been a little surprise blessing.
Most of the pictures turned out blurry. The best pictures were taken AFTER my precious model spit-up on her new outfit.
I just finished it, and want to be sure to get it in by the deadline for Project Run and Play.
They said we have until May 22nd. Since I'm not sure if they mean by midnight tonight or on the 22nd, Eastern Time Zone or some other, I'm putting this post together quickly with the pictures I just took before putting her to bed for the night.
I guess I'm about to find out.
The project for this month was this cute little top by The Crafty Cupboard.
Isn't it sweet?
It wasn't sized for a 6 month old, but I was able to make it smaller with no problem.
I used cotton knit to make this outfit.
I just love flutter sleeves, and decided to do two on each side, since I knew I'd be adding two ruffles around the whole thing.
My favorite feature just may be all the stars I sewed into the skirt of the dress.
It's called reverse applique.
My sister recently asked me if I wanted to go through a box of clothes she was taking to the local thrift store to donate. I scored several new looking t-shirts her husband didn't want. Love to upcycle!
I wish I had gotten my diaper bag finished in time. You can read about it here if you want to see what I came up with.
