So the only place I'll ever stand in line for on Black Friday is Joann Fabrics and Crafts. Percentage-wise they truly have the best deals. When I saw an add for this fabulous line of flannel fabrics I knew I had to stock up. Its regular $5.99 and yard but the Black Friday sale brought it down to...$1.29! That's wicked awesome! So here's the stash of dress and blanket making fabric that I picked out. Plus I went back later that day and got more that's not in this picture :P
And here are some things I've made with the stash! The first 2 are for Brody. I need to post an update on his page but this boy is growing like crazy! He's only 2 months and already about 3 and half pounds and completely off oxygen. They get to take him home soon!
Now I have to explain this dress...its been a thorn in my side! I got the instructions from a book. No pattern, just instructions. I've NEVER made any clothes from scratch before so I knew it would be an adventure. The problem is the instructions were for 2-3 year old girls. So I started and kept realizing the dress would be monsterously big on Lucy. I had to keep modifying it and changing little things so it would work for her little body. Its far from perfect but she loves it. And it will grow with her because I made it adjustable. All in all it could have been a total disaster but I don't think its awful for a 1st try!
|Her dress for the "Fancy Dress Ball" as Lucy calls it.|
|The Princess and The Frog was more exciting than Mommy's camera apparently.|
|Not a perfect dress but it makes twirling more fun.|
|And its still comfy enough to climb in.|
|Love this face.|
