But that's not what this post will be about.
I must tell you guys that my friend Christina is CRAZY talented. She made this awesome fruit print and I knew that it had to be a fabric. Because it's so fun and colorful and happy and my little girls needed to wear it!
I ordered two yards of it from Spoonflower, one with the print a bit bigger. Though I was really pleased with the colors (the print transferred really well!), it seemed that the fabric was a bit stiffer than I would've hoped, perhaps because of the transfer? Anyway, because I only had two yards, I've been trying to maximize usage by using it with other fabrics.
First I made a dress for Penny using some chambray as the bodice.
She liked it. :) She said it's her fruit princess dress.
Then, I wanted to make something for Emma. This one is a simple pillowcase dress. (If you couldn't tell, I only sew things that I can whip up quickly and without patterns! Lazy sewer am I.)
It BARELY fit her. She's such a chunk. :)
I made those two dresses, and a couple of cute little tissue holders for Christina from the first yard.
And I still couldn't stop!
A skirt for Penny...
I have ⅔ of a yard left of the fabric and I'll be hoarding it until I can think of the perfect way to use it.
Is this the resurrection of our blog??? I guess we will see...
