I realize I am in the minority here, but I am CRAZY in love with the two drastically different buttons.  I think they look fabulous.  Grin Grin Grin

if you don't mind, I'm going to use your idea for inspiration...

What?  You're just going to rip off my idea?  Geesh!

Oooh!  I am sooo in love with that coat.  The dots!  The pink buttons!  It's fabulous.  Grin Grin Grin

Great job!

The dress is two layers.  That rose fabric is from an old sheet I got at the thrift store (the very observant of you may have notice that my daughter is wearing a skirt made out of it in the pic where she's holding the bag.  She also has a rose nightgown.  It's like the never-ending sheet.) and is very thin, so it needed a lining.  I used a nightgown that I had in the giveaway pile, that way there was a cute ruffle at the bottom with no extra work by me.  I'm all about the lazy crafting.  Wink

Last minute I decided not to close up the sides of the top layer, and I have to say it looks soooo cute on her - floating and moving around when she walks.  Her mom has already asked if I can adjust the arm and neck openings with bigger elastic as she grows, so it can become a top. Nothing like your hard work actually being appreciated.  Grin

Thanks again for the great tute!

So freaking beautiful.  I've been fantasizing about this quilt ever since I saw it on the Purl Bee blog. I'm still trying to decide which would be more work - talking someone who knows how to quilt into making it for me, or learning to do it myself.  Roll Eyes

Fantastic job.  What a lucky best friend you have.

I love this beyond all reason.  Painted furniture is sooooooooo fun, and this is the most funnest (I was an art major - we're creative w/ our grammar) example I've ever seen.

Awesome, awesome job.  Grin Grin Grin

Clarification: Birthday Girl is not mine.  Mine would be the one rocking the sunglasses and attitude in my avatar.  Roll Eyes Cheesy  Birthday Girl is just an adorable acquaintance who looked like she needed a new dress.  Wink

As for the tote - it's lined in that rose fabric to match the dress.  There's a pic that kind of shows the inside of it on that first link I put up.  The handles have no cords, just fabric strips that I folded ends to the center, then in half, then stitched two lines across.  They have a nice, sturdy, quilty quality. (Yes, "quilty".  It's a technical term.)  I intended to appliqu a heart (or maybe a big E) onto the front of the bag, but totally forgot until after I had seamed up the sides.  Ah, well.  She's one.  Surely she's not worried that her bag is boring.  Wink

While trying to decide what to make for a first birthday present, I saw the 390847938473 posts here by people who followed Vegbee's fantastic peasant blouse tute.  Well - I couldn't let you guys have all the fun w/out me, right?

(Personal message to Vegbee - I :heart: your blog. You're tutes are fantastic.  Unfortunately, Blogger does not :heart: me.  It never, ever lets me comment.  So know please that you can tell me what to do any day of the week. Your lurker, Jenn.)

My only beef was that the tute CLEARLY said it would take me about an hour, and this sucker took me about 3.  This *could* be due to the fact that I'm the slowest crafter on the planet, though, so I guess I can't whine *too* much.  Wink

Birthday girl loved it, and looks freaking adorable wearing it -

I also made her this little tote for her treasures -

 - and was the hero of the birthday party.  Grin

More details and blah blah blah-ing can be found here, and more cute action shots and gratuitous patting myself on the back is here.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

This is, without a doubt, the most PERFECT birthday party dress ever.  You must let her wear it.  Great job.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

(And thanks a ton for the Super Martian Robot Girl song I've got in my head now... YEAH!)

I was just making a pillowcase dress for the kiddo, and wondering how it would look as a top for an adult.  Now I know - awesome.  Grin

(And the tomato pin cushion is my fave, too.  Fanfreakingtastic tattoos. )
