Chevron Summer Dress

I am chomping at the bit to start working on some summer clothes for the kids. I have permission and promises from E that he will wear what I make for him...I just have to run my ideas by him first:o) Thankfully, it's a lot easier to please S.R. As long as it's girly and comfortable, she's all in!
I got really lucky the other day while in Hobby Lobby. They NEVER, and I mean NEVER have regular chevron in stock. They usually have a few duck cloth selections, but the apparel chevron is always sold out.
It was a sign...a sign that it was my chance to make a cute dress for S.R.
And here it is. A sweet little apron dress with a ruffled bodice. She loves it, and that makes me smile.
The back is gathered and the straps button on the inside of the dress. I had so much fun creating this dress, and I am ready to start working on some more!! Time for a fabric run!!

Pillows-Chevron, Stripes, and More!

Hello, hello, hello! I have been on a crazy spring cleaning spree these past few weeks! I have been organizing EVERYTHING in my house. One of the most exciting things for me is my newly organized craft room. I can't wait to share with you all the transformation. I still have a few finishing touches, and then I'll be ready for the reveal. So to hold you over until then, here are some pillows I whipped up for my monogramming friend
 Don't you love the color combo? And don't these pillows just scream "keep me on this bed with this awesome duvet cover?!?"
Sadly, they must go to their intended home;o)
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
