I made this dress out of twill I had been saving to make a handbag.  I saw these awesome woodland animals stamps at Michael's, and had to buy them.  The more I looked at them, the more I started thinking how cool it would be to use the stamps to make a pattern on fabric.  So I did.  Then the idea hit me - make a toddler's jumper dress with it!  So, here it is, my labor of love (and boy oh boy, was it a LABOR of love! All that stamping took forever!).  It is a size 2T, and I'm thinking about giving it to my niece for her b-day in June.

Thanks.  I used permanent ink pads for the color, and then heat-set it with my iron.  "Stampin Up" has a set of earth tone colored ink.  That is what I used.

Thanks to everyone, for your kind comments.  I am relatively new to sewing, so I need all the encouragement I can get.   Smiley
