lily's dress

lil's dress.
we made an xl, which was sized 18-24 months by the pattern's directions (lily is 17 months) and it was WAY huge. so i made a medium a couple days later and it fits perfectly. darn her for being so small! haha. she looks super cute, but i just might be biased:)
next on our sewing agenda, this pattern by simplicity. and in cute cherry print fabric! can't wait!

my mother (who hasn't sewn in quite a while) and myself will attempt to make lily one of these little rompers today. i am soooo excited!
i am also itching to make a pillowcase dress that i saw featured in the june/july issue of simply handmade. i want to head to some thrift stores and scope out some really cute vintage pillowcases. lily will be the cutest thing this spring/summer! ack!
i will post photos as soon as i can! oh, and wish us luck! hahaha:)

happy birthday

so this card is actually new... i had some time earlier to get crafty and seized the opportunity.
i based it a little on one of the sketches in the most recent paper crafts magazine. you can see the sketch here toward the bottom of the page. i didn't include the half-circle element because i wanted the focus to be more on the ribbon. i seriously bought the ribbon because i liked the color and the width. i just so happened to have paper that was similar enough to match it:)

cardstock: bazzill
pattern paper: my mind's eye, collage press
ribbon: american crafts
ink: versamark, colorbox
embossing powder: american crafts
stamp: ki memories
