I know how ya'll love my stories... ((lol)) If you don't, just scroll on down to the pictures!!

When I was pregnant, we moved into a tiny apartment with an amazing view of the city. Across the hall from us lived a young guy Keano and his girlfriend Roxy. Keano was so similar to Tim it wasn't funny. Except Tim wasn't as rough!

They both had cheeky blue eyes, they both had shaved heads, they both drove old cars, but both of their old cars were unreliable so they had both borrowed cars to drive instead. Both of these borrowed cars were white Toyota Camrys.

It gets better.

Just after Vince was born, we got the news that they were going to have a baby too!

We were moving out of the apartment into a house Tim's mother owns about 20 minutes away from where we currently lived. Keano and Roxy were also moving into a house Keano's mother owned one suburb over from our new place! Both Tim + Keano had to wait until their brother's moved out of the houses before they could move in. Both of the houses had bathroom issues, and both of them needed the ceilings sanded back and repainted.


And now they're going to have a little kid too! She's still cooking, and will be due in the beginning of January!

So, the point of all this? lol, I don't have a daughter, and they are going to have one, so I grabbed the opportunity to make some little dresses for their baby shower!

The little headband was made from the bottom part of the singlet I cut off. There is an R under the bow, the R stands for River Grin

I made these dresses from store-bought singlets and attached a gathered skirt to the bottoms of them! So cute and a great way to use up my pretty girly scraps!

I had so much fun. Lace + ribbons + bows YEY!

I made a little applique, but didn't have any Vlisofix ((argh, what is it called? I havn't used it since I was 14)) So I stitched it on and it started to fray, so I got my PVA glue and just painted glue over it. It worked!!

anytime you can use skull & crossbones WITH bones in baby clothes is FANTASTIC imho.  Smiley

The little dresses are so cute, and the skull and cross bones with pink bones is very original and a one of a kind.  I like your edgy style.

Haha great story. Very freaky coincidences!! We have a twin family too except they are our exact opposites...all our kids the same age but opposite sexes etc etc. I love, love, love the dresses!! And not only are they so funky...but they look really comfy for bub too! Well done  Grin

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be?

We are all meant to shine.
