2 Bandannas??!!! That is so cool. I wish I could still fit into 2 bandannas-think how inexpensive it would be to make a whole wardrobe!!!

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted a tutorial yet. I know I promised one, and I don't like to go back on my promises. I've been sick, and between that, working, and being full time mommy, I havent had quite the perfect moment to make one. I have the pictures, just not the text. LOL. I super promise, this weekend, you'll have the tutorial.

oh, and YES....it was just a temporary tattoo on her chest. Roll Eyes

If you dont have anything nice to say, at least have the decency to be vague.

Hee. My bunny has two fake tats on right now - one on her ankle and one on her right shoulder, also just like mommy.

I am dumbfounded by how many people have asked me if they're real.

Sure, I'm in more tears than she is when it's time for shots - but I just thought that it'd be fun to hold my toddler down in a chair and let somone ink her up in a permanent design of my choosing!  Roll Eyes

I adore that halter dress! It's way too cute.

Okay guys. Here's the tute for the halter dress....however, I just made a top for the lil one in this one. All you have to do to make it a dress, is just extend the sides of the top to the length you want. Please bear with me, I'v never made a tutorial for anything, so if I miss anything, just let me know. Here goes:

First, I cut out two triangles of fabric. I just kind of guesstimated how big they needed to be, (I HATE measuring) and held them up to the lil one to make sure they would fit. I made one side a little more angled than the other...like this:

Then I added my new best friend, bias tape. Once I finally figured out how to work with that stuff, it's wonderful!!!

I then measured out the bottom of the halter top, (or dress) and cut out two pieces of fabric; one of which I made a casing for the elastic. That's gonna be your back.


After I finished with the elastic, I then sewed the triangles to the rest of the front, by placing them where I wanted them to cross over, and right sides of the fabric together. After that, I flipped it over and topstitiched it, just to give it a little more security.


To finish things up, I sewed the front and back together, and folded the hem up 1/4", and then folded it again, then stitched it. Voila! A handy top that my lil one can wear and play in.

Again, if I've screwed up too badly, or there's anything I didnt clarify, just let me know. Oh! And sorry for the HUGE numbers of pics.
