It's not very bright of me to be up until 2:30 a.m. sewing, and even more dumb of me to post about it at 2:45 a.m....especially when I have four children that are early risers! Oh well, it's not like I have much time for stuff like this during the day with a two year old and a four month old needing A LOT of attention! I'm sure there are others of you out there that do the same thing...right?
This is a little reversible dress that I made for my baby girl. The dress whipped up in no time.
This is the back view. It is an open back which shows off the ruffly diaper cover that I made. The flip side of the dress is the tiny flower print that is on the hens. It's cute, and I meant to take a picture, but I forgot...and my eyes are starting to lose their vision...
I love the ruffled diaper cover, but it most certainly did not whip up as fast as the dress! Sewing those tiny leg holes was a pain in the...well, nevermind.
I would have loved to have taken a picture of it on my little model, but she is fast asleep. Did I mention what time it is??? Oh well, I'm going to take my dry, scratchy eyes and go to bed! Good night...

I love these European market totes! The first time I ever saw one was after the birth of my daughter. A friend from my Sunday school class brought us a meal, and she carried it in one of these. She had her initial on hers too (but without the ribbon), and I really thought it was cute. Then, I saw one in Paula Deen's magazine, and I thought, "I need one of those!" In case you haven't seen these, they are completely collapsible. They fold up flat once you take out the little plastic thingies that go in the little "pockets" for support. I monogrammed mine with the "French Dot" embroidery alphabet found here, and then I added the ribbon tie. Now I'm ready for the next potluck or picnic. I'm sure there are a million uses for this thing!

What do you do when you make something to sell, but you really want to keep it??? I need to make a boy seat cover next...I don't have a boy baby anymore. :) My camera does not take great pictures, so just imagine the beautiful colors that are in this fairy fabric.
Nice chlorine bucket in the background, huh?! I'll have to get some better shots before listing this!
The underside... I love that pink!
Anyway, that is a little sneak peek on what I've been working on for the shop! I will use sef-control by not keeping this for Isabella, but...I really want to keep it!
