Emm-Eye-See Kay-eee-Why (M.I.C.K.E.Y.)

My Lovely Assitant became an official fan of that famous Mouse last October when I look her to Disney on Ice. (I was so pleased that it was Mickey, and not one or more of the Princesses!)

When I told her we were going again in February, she asked for "a Mickey dress that is blue-my-favorite-color." And that is what she got!

I used the same pattern as for this dress and this dress, and made a freezer paper stencil for the mouse silhouette. I added some dots. Why? Because I like them!

The result is a dress she loves almost as much as the mouse himself.

I have a LOT of baby showers to attend lately - and that means lots of baby gifts.

This is one of my favorite projects. Sadly, I took photos of only one of the many I made, and the photos aren't good. Guess I'll just have to make more for the next baby girl!

What is cuter than a sweet baby in a onesie?

A sweet baby in a onesie with ruffles on the booty!

Can't wait for Baby M to arrive and model these herself!!

Upcycled t-shirt dress

Made entirely from old - I mean upcycled - tshirts, this was a hit for St. Patrick's day.

My girl insists on wearing this dress often. Luckily, it is one of my favorites, too.
