Tutu for niece

I had some chiffon in my stash and my niece loves to dress up... add some elastic and as much ribbon as I could fit, voila!

BSA Pinewood Derby Car

Our kids are involved in Boy Scouts of America and American Heritage Girls, and last weekend was our troops Pinewood Derby.

The boy debated between a flaming guitar theme or the Zachry NASCAR truck.

Tough decision.

He went with the truck! Overall, he got 3rd in his den.

The driver, David Starr, got wind of the boy's car (well, truck), and made a video to personally congratulate the boy. What a guy!

The boy in on cloud 9, and is determined to win it next year!

Knit summer dress/PJ's

The problem with knit fabric is that it's just so expensive! And not good quality, I'm afraid. It's just cheaper to buy a knit dress than to make one...

I happened to find this fabric on sale, so for about $2, the girl got a dress/pj's. The fabric is very thin, so I'm not sure I'll let her wear it in public, but it's super cute, and according to her, very comfy... sooo, pj's it is!

Newborn Outfit... daisy print with smocking!

I LOVE this fabric. This is a super simple dress. The top is fully lined. I piped some edging for the waist, then pleated the skirt for smocking. The bloomers are fully lined, too.
