I decided to make a jumper for my daughter. Which turned out to be a good idea when i was making it but hard when i actually had to put it on her.

Front View, me holding her up

I used felt, Pipe cleaners for straps and accents around the pockets. Pompoms for accents around the pockets, and inside the fake flowers.

Close up of the front pocket

I used popsicle sticks to make a little kitschy house on the back with pompom puffs of smoke coming from the chimney.

A little blurry, sorry... 15 month olds move fast!

There she is trying to run from me

It was so much fun to make. It looked great off her, but when it actually went on she wouldn't hold still enough for it to sit correctly. Oh well. I think it still looks pretty awesome. I am going to fix the little things and get it to the point where she can wear it out. Hope everyone enjoys... thanks.

Wow! thats really good! and the fact you managed to get it on her - it takes 2 to change my 14mth olds nappy - the outfit and the fact she stayed even a lil still both amaze me!

Your little girl is so cute!  I love the combination of prints and fabrics you used!

I completely understand that one! I measured my potholder skirt over and over but in the end my husband had to sew me into it!  Once I got in it, the skirt fit fine, those loops stretch, but getting in it was a bit tough!

I loved your comment on my crazy burning man outfit it made me laugh. Yay for felt! It was the themed packet, right? I looked at that one first and then opted for the green leopard print  because... well actually I don't know why.

The first picture came out great and I love the Baby Destroyer picture also, with the butterfly half hanging on. She's soooo cute!
