Sylvie's birthday dress and a little tree hugger

I'm almost done with Sylvie's birthday outfit...just need to make some bloomers or maybe some ruffly jeans....
The pics of the dress aren't showing the true colors, most likely because I took them with artificial light. I'll take more in the daylight tomorrow.
The tree hugger sweatshirt is my newest etsy creation, but I definitely need better pics before I list it.

Easter dress pics

Although neither one of them wanted to hold still for pictures, I managed to get a few good shots of their dresses. How do you like Chloe stylin' with both dresses on?

Easter dresses for Chloe and Sylvie

Okay, so they weren't the most cooperative subjects today, but I was able to get some pics of the girls in their Easter dresses. Chloe's is done, but Sylvie's still needs bloomers and some work on the ties. I made these without patterns, and I think they turned out pretty well! I even made my own bias tape for Chloe's armhole edging and straps!

a REALLY FUN onesie dress!

Just listed this fun spring onesie dress on etsy....I'm working on more in pink and aqua blue....I am so loving my sewing machine right now!

Newest Etsy Listings

Okay, I'm finally getting some onesies listed on etsy! Here are the ones I listed today:


Fun and Funky Organic Onesies

Here are a few of the onesies I've been working on....

The onesies are organic, from Zeespot in British Columbia. They're a pretty cool company with good environmental and social values. I dig 'em. Check out their site: http://www.zee-spot.com/
I took all of these to Barn Happy, so I've had to make another batch for Etsy. I'll be listing them today and continuing to make more and more!

Chloe's Birthday Outfit

Wow, I have been busy! Since my last post I've made Chloe's b-day outfit, sold a batch of onesies and hats to a local shop, and made a bunch of stuff for my etsy shop. First, I have to show off the pics of Chloe's outfit...I'm so excited about how it turned out! It began with a plan to just make a shirt, and turned into an entire coordinated outfit.

I started with a ready-made white tee shirt, then made sleeves and added them (my first time!). Then I stuffed, appliqued, and beaded the felt cupcake. When I was done, I decided to make a skirt out of the same b&w fabric, and I love how it turned out. The pictures don't capture it, but I did pink zig-zag stitching around the skirt about every 7th row, and gave a lettuce edge to the hem of the skirt and sleeves. For the final touch, I appliqued a felt "4" on the back of her shirt and made a matching hair bow.

What do you think?!?
