Because of Memorial Weekend I decided to announce the winner for our minky blanket giveaway from The Minky Boutique on Friday...so you've got a few more days if you didn't enter yet. It is seriously such a sweet blanket you must take a minute to comment if you haven't :)
Next, if you didn't see my post on Friday where I had an announcement and shared some sweet little dresses (hint hint) I think you should!! :)
It's Fabric Tuesday and I have more girly-ness to share...it's getting out of control and I can't stop myself. If I didn't need to use up all this fabric it would be a real problem. I go to sleep and wake up thinking of all the girl dresses/skirts/blankets/quilts that I want to make!!
I told my husband when I finished this last night that it may be the prettiest thing I've ever made. I am smitten with this blanket!!!
The ruffles?? And birdies and roses and...I'm so loving this! I got this fabric called Tweet from Skye Reve Fabrics a bit ago on a whim thinking "If I have a girl..." and I am so happy that I got it! The fabric came just as we found out the baby is a girl :) It is a great size, about 40" square.
Yep, backed in the snuggliest minky from my LQS. I took a nap with it today. Seriously. I made my husband snuggle it for a while too :) This morning when I excitedly pointed it out to my 3 year old son, folded in a corner so you couldn't really see it, I said "Look at the cute blanket I made for the baby!" He took a quick glance and said, "I know already." Ha! Boys really don't care about this stuff! That's why I have this blog right??
And then in the last week I busted out some skirts too, I'm trying to advance my clothing skills since I haven't sewn clothing much. These were sooo simple.
Coral Floral: Lark by Amy Butler
Cream Floral (above) Red Bouquets (below): Millie's Closet for Riley Blake
Gray Circles: I'm pretty sure it's something like Metro Dots for Robert Kaufman...anyone?
I also got most of these from Skye Reve Farbics
Isn't the trim sweet? I got it at my LQS, it's just ruffled tulle. Okay now hold on to your coffee mug, or chair, or dag/cat. I've got a little surprise.
Oh yes I did. It's two skirts, they're reversible :) It was so cute to make these and my boys actually did think it was cool that the skirt could flip and change entirely :) There you have it for now!!
