smock dress modeled


here's nee'-nee' in her smock dress I made. Isn't she too cute!? uh, yeaah! I love the fabric, especially the green and flowered print together. I can't wait to get a hold of some more cute fabric to make more clothes for her. I'm eager to find fabrics that aren't traditional children's fabrics. My little girl looks lovely in navy blue, but just try to find it and it's nearly impossible! No more! I'll just go pick out some and make it myself.

Benji's birthday is coming up and I'm trying to figure out what I want to make him. I want to make him a birthday crown from the book, The Creative Family by Amanda Blake Soule (soulemama is her blog) but I don't have it, nor do I have a car at my disposal to get it (my mom's here and nick's at work - they're both using the cars). So I'm going to try and figure it out by looking at the pictures of it. Plus, I want to make a birthday cape -- or really just an any day cape, but especially for his birthday.

We're going to the zoo tomorrow with my mama to celebrate his birthday. So, I may make it for his day tomorrow, and then just have him wear it on his real birthday, next saturday. I can't believe he's going to be two!!
