a busy week making things

This week we've had a few nice days and so that means more going outside with the babes and doing fun summery things, which means fewer nap times and less crafting.

I did get many felt flowers made for headbands, ponytails, and clippies (not sure which to do more of). Made these up over a few naptimes while watching Xena Warrior Princess (season 3)



I also made this adorable knot dress. It is a combination of 2 patterns from the book "Little Girls, Big Style". I love how it turned out, and I even did french seams and made it so there are no seams exposed. Very tidy.

Love the dress. That fabric you used is super cute and old fashioned.
Too funny you mention Xena. I just got netflix and re-discovered that show.
Found you on Tatertots and Jello

Really nice.
Do you undo the knots to get her in, or is it ok just slipping over the head?

Thank-you.
@Andrea I just slip her in, I like doing the knots though because as I can undo and re-tie them as she grows so it can be worn longer. Kids grow through clothes WAY to fast I'm finding!

You have no idea how happy it makes me to see you combine different projects from the book! Love the pinafore with knotted straps. I think yours is the first I've seen, too. I hope you get much enjoyment from the book!
