After the frothy-overload involved in the adoption dress I was eager to get my hands on something a little more fun in terms of projects.  A while ago I got my hands on this great camo made up of butterflies print twill and last week my daughter and I set to work creating this jumper for back to school.

She picked out everything but the camo fabric and chose hot pink cotton for the lining, yellow top stitching thread and groovy pewter star buttons.

Here she is loving it:



Here's her favourite part:



Here's her hamming it up for the fans on our jungle porch:

Heh...especially with the ducky pj pants Cheesy  Believe me, it looks so much better with the white blouse and brown leggings we got to go with it.

I love the fabric too.  I thought of her the moment I saw it and snatched it up.  They sell it at Fabricland...which I believe only has stores in Canadia.

That looks great.

She's a pretty groovy chick.  I think I'll keep her Smiley
