Green Day

Not the band... but I like them, too.

This is the little outfit I whipped up for Boo's in no time on Thursday afternoon for her 'Green Day' on Friday.

I LOVE it!
I used Ellie Inspired's new Sandpiper pattern designed for knits and I couldn't be more thrilled with how it turned out. I was lucky enough to be a tester for the pattern, so this is the second one I've made and I really love that pattern.
(That reminds me that I need to show you the first one....)
Oh... and it's(and all Laura's patterns)are on sale today only. Go check it out!

The fabric for the top and the leggings is leftover from Ella's Strawberry Shortcake dress. Just meer scraps. The bottom is cut off of a free t-shirt Mr. Cole got from work.
I can't believe I was able to make this outfit from practically nothing. It really is a 'green' dress.

I knew I wanted to put a frog on the dress for green day. I've always loved frogs and the girls have never been into them. Ella did like this one from Lynnie Pinnie, though.

For the bows, we used ggdesigns new frog felt stitchies.
Ella wasn't thrilled with the bows... or my styling, but I think she just looks so adorable like that.

The leggings are a new pattern from Jocole that I am seriously in love with. Every outfit I make now is going to have matching leggings. The fit is perfect for my girls and they're so easy and fun to make. We love leggings! I finished the bottom of these ones off with some sweet stretch lace.

I'm so pleased that I was able to make Boos a few new things for color week this week. She's got a few more colors next week, but I'm not sure if she'll need anything new or not....

We've been enjoying the three day weekend and the weather. The cold front that came thru brought temperatures in the mid 60's this morning... and man! that is my kind of weather. We went outside to ride bikes and pick leaves and sing Christmas carols.
I did a little sewing this weekend on my Project Run and Play Challenge for next week (if I make it) and I'm pretty excited about it. I can't wait to show you guys.

Lucy's in a new little dance class that gets to dress up as a different Disney princess each week... two birds. One stone.

Happy Labor Day everyone!
