Summer Dresses

So I have found my new addiction. Simply dresses for my favorite little girl. This dress is from one of the patterns I purchased a couple of weeks ago. I changed some things around with the pattern and this is what I came up with. The dress and the headband took me about one hour to make. It was really easy to make. If any one is interested I will post the pattern.

Happy Place on Earth

We had so much fun at Disneyland. The kids were on their best behavior which made the day very pleasant. We went with my Dad, Step mom, Sis Natalie, and Sis Kayla. Ezra meet Buz and it was the highlight of the day for him. I love that a place that made me so happy as a kid makes my kids just as happy.

I have been so focused on baby showers lately that when my husband and I were invited to a wedding I didn't know what to give. Here is what I decided to make
A dishtowel!! It is fun and unique both of what I love. Throw in some cute green mixing bowls, a silicone spoon from Crate and Barrel and for next to nothing you have a fun and unique wedding gift.

Why I Sew

On my day away from the kids I stopped by Joanna's fabric. I never get to sit down and look through the patterns and to my happy surprise they were 99 cents. I found this great pattern for a top, bought some fabric and went home to make something for my daughter. I added some of the fun vintage fabric and with a total of $3.00 Leah had a new dress and headband for church. Now for the reason why I sew. After I finished her dress she came to me with a little note thanking me. That makes all the hours I spend sewing so worth it.
