A little su'mm su'mm

I know I said I'd be gone 'till the end of April, but guess what happened? The blogging pressure was gone, and I got board! So, I made baby girl a new little summer dress from an old AE shirt of mine, and some bows and headband 'cause she tore apart her last ones with her new, sharp little tooth! Silly baby.

So, here's what I've been up to:

I used a dress she already has, and used it as a pattern to cut this one out. Then I cut out the AE logo and patched it on. It's not yet sewn together in this picture though.

Here are the bows I made yesterday too.

I know she looks kinda funny in these pics, but she was watching Baby Einstein and wouldn't look away. Hey, at least she was staying still, right? I think she really looks like a little model in the first one. Cute girl.
What was so funny was that after I took these pictures she was rolling around, and I found her blue bow on the floor. She had crumpled it all up and guess what? It looked so cute! Here it is after.

So, I did the same with the gold one too. :)

Did you know that Hobby Lobby sells these bags called "Ribbon Sachet" and it has 2 yards of 30 different strips of ribbons, all different colors and styles?? I had no idea! I was just looking for ribbon and I found these bags hidden at the very bottom.

Then I went to that little random ends section that has trimmings on sale, and I got 2 bags for $2 each that had lots of really different kinds of trim in there, and ribbon too. It's so great 'cause I don't need a whole lot of one kind, and some of the trims can be really expensive, even for a little bit. This way I get lots of different kinds for really cheap! If you can't tell, I was pretty excited. :) But the gold and blue ones above were made with wired ribbon that was from a post-Christmas sale. Sweet!

But I really am leaving on Wednesday, so I'm not sure when I'll be posting again :)
Have a wonderful week!
