For sake of completing a post this week, amongst the many things that have kept me busy, here are some projects I've been up to...of which I LOVE!
I had been looking for some wooden blocks for K, but hadn't found any that I thought were cute enough or for the right price. So here are the blocks I made for her. The blocks were $2 and the paper were some scraps I had in my stash. She loves them!
I had posted this dress on my family blog, and it has finally found its way onto this one. I learned how to smock and this was my first project. Overall the project cost 38 cents and 20 minutes! Love that :)
My sister gave me these shorts to try and sell to Plato's Closet- they said they were and older label (don't they still sell ones almost exactly like this at the store?!!) Anyways, since they wouldn't give money for them and I thought the fabric was perfect, I used it to make a summery ruffle top for KiKi. I think I may make some matching lounge pants with a ruffle at the bottom.
These "M.C. Hammer" pants as Dave calls them, were made without a pattern and on a whim... next time I will do some things differently. Overall they turned out cute, and a good thing is that they are short enough that K doesn't stumble on them while walking.
Last are these simple lounge pants with ric-rak on the bottom. After making them and K wearing them to playgroup, I discovered that they are a bit long, next ones will be a bit shorter. They are nice and lightweight for summer.
