Second is doing some more sewing for my darling neice. I don't think I showed y'all the precious reversible jumper I made for her first birthday party. She had a pink snowflake themed party so this dress was PERFECT!
The outside of the dress is corderoy (I almost typed "pink corderoy" but I thought, duh, they can see that it's pink!) with a minky dot snowflake applique. The opposite side is pink and white polka dot fabric. I love the ball fringe trim too! I think this is my favorite outfit to date! Of course, I wasn't ready to quit while I was ahead, so I made her this little cutie to wear Christmas.
Another project I've been working on is my 1980's sofa table. I've already painted it ivory, even though I really wanted to paint it turquoise. I chickened out, thinking my living room is mostly earth tones with red accents and turquoise wouldn't go, but then I went to my friend Jennifer's house and her living room was very similar to mine except for her turquoise table! It looked great, so now I am determined to paint my table as well.
Now to get motivated and get busy!
