And Coming...

I bought this fabric in Italy a year and a half ago and have been patiently waiting for the right project to use some of my precious two meters. And I think this dress proves itself to be worthy, and then some.

Baby Dresses Keep Coming

Here is another tunic baby dress I just finished up. I was toying between the contrasting aqua with white polka dots for the trim and some pink, orange and brown polka dots. I went with the aqua on this one but there is enough corduroy for another version. I kept this dress pretty simple with just a little detail around the neck, arms and the finish on the hem, along with a little top stitching on the seams. I am picturing some tights and a little long sleeve t-shirt to complete the outfit.

Baby Boy Zoo Quilt

Here is my latest baby quilt. The quilt top is Alexander Henry's Zoo 2D print and the back is a vibrant royal blue. I was able to show off my new found free motion quilting skills on this one and let me tell you, working with a crib size quilt is so much easier than quilting a double size quilt. I love the simplicity of this quilt and the great contrast between the royal blue and the white in the quilting and the binding.
