Easy, Breezy, Ellery…

I love a good naptime sewing project.  Rifling through my box of scraps, I found the start of a shirt that I had tossed aside a few months back.  It’s just 2 panels sewn together, with an elastic casing at the top.  I had some leftover bias tape from here, so I cut it in half and sewed the two ends to the front, and added a couple of buttons.  Voila!  A new flowy, flowery halter for my little darlin’.

I’m such a fan of this fabric.  I love all the green in it, and the little orangeish-red dots in the center of the flowers.  The halter straps are made from this.  Both fabrics are from designer, Heather Bailey.

My kids were really good to me and slept a bit longer.  Long enough for me to make a second attempt at sewing pants for E.  My first try involved using MADE’s kid pants tutorial… they ended up being too tight and short on her, so today I drafted a quick pattern from an existing pair of pants.  I’m so happy I did because they actually fit perfectly, and she didn’t cry for mercy when I put them on her. 

I knew I wanted to give the girl some highwaters, or “cropped” pants as they call ’em these days…  I love how they look on her.  Love her little ankles, and her new neon pink shoes that her friend Caroline gave her (she actually calls this little girl “Friend Caroline” so as not to confuse her with her Aunt Caroline.  ha). 

Want a glimpse into of Ellery’s greatest talents?  Okay!  Here ya go:

Rifling through the fridge!  Hope she finds something good…

 Seriously, Ellery… tomatoes?  Who’s child are you?

I’m kidding.  This kid would eat tomatoes at every meal if I let her.

Now, if only she’d ask her Mommy for a napkin!
