Hey Girl Can You Make Me Some Ruffle Britches?

Now that I have a new burlap wreath on my front door and Ugly Chair Number Two is finished I have had time to do a little sewing.  I haven't sewn anything since before Christmas and I've been going through withdrawals!  It was nice having my dining room looking like a dining room and not a sweat shop, but sacrifices have to be made for creativity!

Before I show y'all a few things I've been sewing on I have to ask if y'all have seen those hilarious "Hey Girl" sayings that are all over Pinterest?  Oh my word!  They crack me up!  Here are two of my favorites!
He is so talking to me!  Do Not walk in my dining room/sweat shop without shoes on or you will be sorry!

Seriously!  I thought my burlap wreath was awesome, but I guess I was the only one! Waaah!  :(

So anyway, a friend of mine has a precious little girl who wants some ruffle britches (ruffle britches are all the rage with little girls around here) and since she knows I like to sew she asked if I would make a few pair for her.  She bought the fabric and the notions and I did the sewing!

This Tinkerbell fabric was precious.  My friend told me her little girl put them on and wouldn't take them off at bedtime, so she let her sleep in them!

Another precious fabric choice.

There was enough of this fabric to make a cute pillowcase dress to go with the britches.

I haven't invested in personalized labels yet, so for now I just fold over a little bias tape and sew it into the waistband to indicate the back of the britches.

The third pair of britches was made with this sock monkey fabric.  I can't believe I forgot to take a picture, but here is what the fabric looks like.

This is the fabric that was sent for the ruffle.  I didn't like it.

On it's own it could be cute, but I didn't think the reds matched and the ruffle monkeys weren't even sock monkey's.

Turns out my friend wasn't so sure about the combination either.  She said the lady at the fabric store matched them up.  We decided I would just make the ruffle out of the sock monkey fabric and I'll save the other monkey fabric for something else.

My friend's little girl loves her new britches!
