2  Oh So Pretty Onsie Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by AlwaysInspired on: April 26, 2012 12:24:11 PM
I found a wonderful tute on Pinterest for these onsie dresses. You can find it here:

I had to tweek the pattern a bit and make something super girlie and fun using my vintage lace stash.

I tea dyed the onsie and created a little ruff with 3 pearl buttons nestled in.

I think every little outfit has to have a matching headband! Same lace as the ruff and a bit of elastic with a linen flower and pearl button.

Now for Hamster to arrive to model it! Cheesy

4  St. Patrick's Flower Table Topper in Quilting: Completed Projects by AlwaysInspired on: March 10, 2012 07:52:32 PM
I have the 12 degree wedge ruler from www.phillipsfiberart.com and used the newest freebie pattern to make this St. Patrick's inspired flower table topper.

I used 2 colors of green Kona cotton and some vintage cream fabric with clovers all over.

It has a new home for now on my dinning room table holding my little leprechaun friend.

Thanks for looking and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Grin

6  Hamster's Heirloom Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by AlwaysInspired on: January 28, 2012 07:17:11 PM
My Grandma embroidered this set of blocks probably around the time I was born! They have been safely tucked away in a drawer for all these years, until she brought them out and issued me a challenge. Make something for my very own baby girl (that we call Hamster) that is due in May. I set to work without a pattern and came up with this!

I used bright fun fabrics as that is what I'm drawn to and it looked so great with the vintage embroidery. My wonderful long arm quilter did this custom for me with lots of swirls.

The quilter echoed each embroidered design and then swirled to fill in the rest of the block and continued it in the sashing.

It is backed with a super soft yellow flannel, perfect for snuggling.

I just know this will get to loved to pieces and I wouldn't have it any other way! Grin

7  Vintage Heirloom Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by AlwaysInspired on: January 14, 2012 08:41:41 PM
I found this lovely tutorial and had to make the dress for my little Hamster that will be born in May! My first actual baby clothes item ever!

You can find the pattern here: http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2011/08/vintage-heirloom-dress-tutorial.html

I used vintage fabric and buttons from my stash! It should fit 3-6 month size. The bodice is fully lined too!

I altered the pattern slightly. Instead of a zipper I did a small snap at the neck with it open below. Also my skirt isn't as full because I was working with vintage fabric that was an odd shaped piece. I added a pleat in the back for shape as well.

I can't wait to meet the little girl that will wear this dress! Grin
