I had the opportunity to sew Peek-A-Boo Pattern's Oxford Cap recently.  I've never tried making a hat before, and I'm loving it.  So much fun, and even better that it's reversible.  I love the style of this one, it's kinda sassy in a girl's version!

Bay Dress

Recently couldn't resist picking up a pattern bundle.  Figured it had a number of useful patterns, and this Bay top, which is just soo cute.  I love the back, and finding the coconut shell buttons worked perfectly with this fabric that's been hanging out in my stash for too long.  I used the Oxford Cap pattern again for the hat, the reverse is more patriotic, but really fun to have a top with a matching hat!

Apron Love

We've been busting through nice shirts when the girls get interested in some kind of project.  Only craft aprons we had were ones from the Home Depot kid's building day.  I found the Growing Up Sew Liberated's Basic Child's apron, and it was just what I was looking for.  I used some stripy IKEA homedec fabric for the girls' aprons, and made one for my nephew with the coloring book fabric and some random woodgrain quilting cotton.  Hoping they get lots of use, even though they're cute unstained!
