Every once in awhile, I feel the creative juices start flowing...and then these "brilliant" ideas pop in my head! For example: how fun would it be to make a little girls dress? Now I realize that having three boys does not lend itself to much knowledge in the way of girls clothing...but I've seen lots of creative ladies blogging about how easy it can be. So I thought, why not? I even had the idea of recycling one of Michael's old casual shirts into a little dress...but then I discontinued that idea (at least for now!) after seeing this idea over on Shari's blog. How simple, but cute!
With a little girl in our church having her first birthday, I decided a little dress was the perfect project. Now it might not have turned out perfect, but it was fun to make and maybe even a little cute! (And should I admit, I tried the dress on Parker to get the basic sizing?) =) I also love the fact that's it's still a onesie!
And because I wanted a good excuse to make one of these rolled fabric flowers that are so popular right now, I made one to accent the dress. I attached it with a safety pin of sorts, so that it could be taken off to wash.
And there you have it my friends - something creative! Maybe this little project will jump start some more brilliant ideas? I know I'd like to learn more about "mod podge-ing" (although I'm sure they don't sell that here in Mexico)...or maybe I should think more about a new quilt for our bed...then again, maybe I should finish other things I've started...?...
I hope y'all have a good weekend!
