Thursdays are usually my so called "Sewing Day" around here! I try really hard to have my house in order and my laundry caught up earlier in the week, so come Thursday I am able to sit and sew guilt free:)
I always have a few projects waiting to be completed, but finding the time to complete them isn't always easy. Well, yesterday I got a few of those little projects crossed off my "to do" list!
First on the list...
"Turkey Day" shirts for the babies!
My good friend, Melanie, came across a picture of the cutest turkey shirt and sent it to me. The turkey feathers were made out of ribbon instead of the usual fabric! I thought it was such a darling and clever idea!!
I went to H@bby L@bby (one of my very favorite stores) and picked up some really colorful and festive ribbon.
After a little trial and error, I finally got it right!
I was thrilled with the way it turned out and can't wait for Sophie to wear it this Thanksgiving;)
Hudson had to settle for the usual ole' turkey day shirt,
I also decided (for the first time ever) to try and make a little cash by selling some of these turkey day shirts. I posted my idea on Facebook and within a few hours I had more orders than I could possibly fill.
How AWESOME is that;)
Guess me and the turkeys will be spending a lot of time together this weekend filling orders;)
I also had fun yesterday, finishing a few dresses for my Sophie girl.
I am in LOVE with this peasant dress pattern, which I just purchased for my all time favorite etsy shop Little Lizard King.
This shop is where I also purchased the apron dress pattern AND the ruffle pant pattern;)
Anyway, I just can't say enough about her patterns.
They are totally fool proof and super easy to understand!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THEM!!!
Last week, I made my first peasant dress per the request of my friend for her three year old daughter.
My friend also requested a coordinating knot dress for her other little one too!
Oh how I love "sister" dresses!
I'm seeing LOTS of these sweet coordinating dresses in MY future now;)
Here are two of the peasant dresses that I just finished up yesterday for my Sophie!
The one of the left, she will be wearing for our upcoming family pics next week.
I just loved the blues and greens!
I also got two Christmas dresses completed as well!
I fell in LOVE with that Santa fabric (on the right) and couldn't wait to make something with it!
PERFECT for our breakfast with Santa in a few weeks;)
And just in case you are wondering
WHAT in the world my little ones are up too while I'm so busy creating?!?!?
Well here's just a little peak...
Yes, that's a jumpy house in the middle of the living room, AND a table full of play dough and accessories.
