Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:
Floral bloomers to go with a top, made for a good friend’s new niece.
The top. Note: Single fold bias tape is the enemy. (I ended up ripping it off and making my own. So there!)
A spring tote, waiting for a good home (preferably before Summer).
Jam made with strawberries picked by the fam.
A nursing cover for my sister Erika, who is a new mother to the adorable Sean…
My 3 year old modeling the cover… You should know that she has proudly nursed all of her baby dolls (and stuffed animals, and dollhouse people).
A simple headband for a birthday girl friend.
To go along with this market skirt.
Ellery’s new favorite dress, made not by me, but by my uber-talented mother, Kate.
Another “Awesome Bag” with a few modifications- an interior pocket, aqua twill for the back, and a vintage button closure at the top. Again, using some Echino fabric.
Hope you’re all finding fun ways to beat the heat as well!
I’m off to the pool for a special date with my girl.
(Oh, and my new goal is to make more stuff for this guy! I have many things in mind for him… some comfy summer pants and a bucket hat are first on my list. Ummm, yeah- I’m pretty sure he’s holding me to it! )
