Everything old is new again....

I'm finally taking the time to post my most recent project, which I am quite proud of. I have been quite anxious to attempt the Kimono pattern posted by Habitual, and have finally done just that! I am quite pleased with the results and cannot wait to make more!

Of course I didn't want to stop there. I needed to complete "the look" and went on the hunt for an idea. After stumbling upon our "old clothing" pile, I dug through and found a shirt my husband no longer wears and has decided to clear out.

The shirt, however, is a favourite of mine and has hardly been worn. Lucky for me, the material was the perfect match to the Kimono shirt. So I quickly whipped up a simply elastic waist skirt for the babe. This was done easily by cutting and using the bottom of the shirt (so that the shirt bottom became the skirt bottom). I sewed the "button up" part of the shirt together and got rid of that evidence - and made that the back of the skirt. A quick flower applique made the outfit complete and made me happy just to look at it.

And doesn't she look sweet in it?

craft blog

I have decided, after being inspired over the past month or so by various craft blogs, to make this my own craft blog. I have no idea what it will turn into, but for now it will be a place to log my crafty side.

After Madilyn turned 6 months old last month, I realized my Maternity Leave was half over and I'd better get cracking on all the "projects" I want to get done before I have to return to work. So far, I have been quite busy. I will have to post photos and links later, but suffice it to say I have completed at least 6 "crafty projects" and have a list that is getting longer of projects I want to do.
