To Sew or Not to Sew.....

I have been drooling over some fun ideas for new sewing projects for Reese. She really doesn't need any more summer clothes....but I still love to look and create things in my mind. I fell in love with this fabric as soon as I saw it on Keri from lovely little handmades' etsy shop. She is also doing a fabric giveaway on her blog right now....Maybe I will luck out and win and be able to get this fabric for free :)

It would be adorable paired with a hand embroidered apron of this cute bunny that I found on the blog doe-c-doe. She offers a ton of free...yes I said free...embroidery patterns. I used a birdie one on a pillow in Reese's room.

I bought some Moda Funky Monkey fabric a while back since Reese just adores sock monkeys. I came across this cute dress and thought it was good inspiration. It was so similar to what I had in mind. The fabrics I bought are different fabrics then the ones used in this dress but would still look so adorable. I am also thinking a striped work skirt on the dress would be cute and a good way to use all the different fabrics. It will make a cute outfit for the fall for sure!

I still have some Moda Swell fabric in my stash that I want to use but have been waiting for the exact design to might stay in the stash until next spring...hehe... I am using the picnic plaid in red that my wonderful and generous friend, Angel, so graciously sent me for pants for Reese's birthday outfit. I'm glad I will be able to use the pants with two tops!

I also am planning on using these two fabrics for a reversable pinafore top for Reese this fall. Maybe I will even embleshish a pair of jeans to match....

And of course there is the fabric that I mentioned in my last blog. A dress or top for Reese out of the Moda Happy Camper fabric is first on my list since I am getting her pictures taken in the next few weeks. I thought it would be cute on her 2nd birthday invites. I am planning a farm birthday party and she is thrilled!
Guess I better get busy since I am still finishing up on her new room!
