That's an awsome reward. Way better than the clapping and squealing my friend does for her daughter. And they look so cute on her

As always, darling!

And it works out really well for me because our wee ones are about the same size!

Thanks so much for the tute - we're going on vacation soon and this is just thing thing I need!

Ok so every time I see a post by you my eyes just bugout!  Shocked

I am not sure how you find the time to craft such pretty clothes for your little one. Who by the way is so pretty! I have three under six and sometimes do not get a shower until hubby gets home after 5!

I am too tired at night to do anything but sleep. But being in FL I have had many a too hot to sleep nights. Instead of laying there cussing the heat maybe I should get my butt out of bed.


Check out my very first blog!

The blouse and your daughter are adorable. Thank-you for the tute.

Here's mine- the tute was pretty easy to understand, even for this amateur seamstress. 

My daughter is freaking out about the sleeves, so next time I might actually just make a button-hole in the sleeve and run ribbon through, instead of elastic.  That way I can tie a bow at whatever looseness/tightness factor she happens to require.  Roll Eyes

I did mess mine up a bit- measured the sleeve elastic an inch shorter than it is supposed to be. Other than her complaining, though, it is fine, since it is still an inch bigger than her arm measures.  (And FYI, you will all be horrified to hear that I used a rubber band as the elastic in one of the sleeves- ran out and had to finish because I am compulsive that way.)

The next one is going to be this neat bright blue fabric I have.  I'm going to cut it now before I go to work.

PS Please ignore the Medusa hair.

PS Again- Thanks so much for the tute!!!!

Love this, as usual! And Kimberlina-I love your innovation with the rubber band. My youngest daughter used to hate anything tight-that's a great idea for putting ribbon through!

Thanks all!

And thanks Kimberlina for showing us!  I'm glad the tute worked for you.  Rubber band good idea!  Ribbon better idea.  Bet it would be really pretty (hmmmm, mind wanders off for mental tour of ribbon stash with a cross reference to fabric... what would go together... maybe a ribbon tie in the front also?  hmmm...)

okay, gotta go sew something...

That's an awsome reward. Way better than the clapping and squealing my friend does for her daughter. And they look so cute on her
only bad point is that she feels compelled to show me the evidence in order to claim her tat.  She will carry her little pot across the house, "see mom, I did it" instead of just dumping it.  I keep telling her she doesn't need to prove anything, but maybe she feels her integrity is on the line?

ha!  no.  They are temp tattoos, and we use them as potty rewards.  (y'all can check her potty learnin' progress over the past few weeks by looking over her tats)

But I do get asked every once in awhile if her ink is true.  (I'm not that mean!  Plus, it would definitely get weird as her skin stretched and matured  Grin)  But she likes to be like mom and dad, who both have ink.

once again i love you for not only answering my questions, but doing it so quickly so i can go home and quit obsessing over how to make this and start actually making it!

and i had to laugh, because my husband and i also are "inked" and little man loves his pretend ones.  when i am with him i hear a lot of, oh that's cute - about them.  but for some reason when jason takes him out people give nasty looks and/or comments.  lots of things about destroying his own body but leaving his child alone...

poor guy.  oh well, some people will never get it.

on the other hand, he thinks daddy's arms are the best coloring book ever!  (after one memorable afternoon i had to get some washable markers!

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)
