Then I made her this little pinafore top (that's the back shown) with coordinating pants, since the weather is getting cooler, she can wear a shirt under the top. The fabric is also from the Tooty Fruity line.
I've also got her a reversible romper cut out of these fabrics as well. My sister picked up these fabrics a while back and I think she got a yard a piece, which was enough to make more than one outfit each. Oh, and check out these darling fabrics I found at Hobby Lobby! I think I'm becoming a hoarder! I'd better get busy if I'm going to get my dining room back.
She's got to have something cute to wear for her first Halloween! I love this trick or treat fabric, but I wish they sold a coordinating fabric to go with it. I found this green damask print in another part of the store and since the color matches the green in the other print I got it.
I liked the green so much I went back today and got this fabric that actually coordinates with it. I'm thinking of doing some ruffle leg pants and a long sleeve peasant top out of these.
I love this turquoise and white fabric, but I think I might wait until spring to make something with it.
Along with the sewing and decorating for Fall, I've got a couple other irons in the fire. Check out this 1980s sofa table. I love having my family photos on display, but I'm ready to do something different with this table. First thing will be a coat of paint.
I still haven't decided what color the paint will be yet. I've seen some gorgeous turquoise sofa tables around the blogosphere, but I might be too chicken for that. We'll see.
Remember the second "ugly chair"? Well, she's fixin' to have a little change too!
Stay tuned for the transformation.
Tomorrow I will be going out of town to sing in a September 11 memorial service. I can't believe it's been ten years since that terrible day. I was pregnant with my youngest and had kissed my husband good bye that morning as he left for the airport. Luckily his plane landed safely and our story had a happy ending, unlike so many others. I hope you'll join me in remembrance of those that were lost that day.
