Barnyard Theme

Hi! I'm back....
I'm still busy as all get out, but I'm setting aside time to blog today.

If I don't, I'll never get caught up. {I still have things from the summer to show you}Which is actually what I'm showing you today.

I love to use my Mom's patterns when I go home in the summer and this was one of those projects. I used Pink Fig's Lydia Dress Pattern for this dress.

I've been dying to try this pattern ever since I learned to shirr on my machine.
I love the little shirred sleeve/straps. That's probably my favorite part of the dress. Although, I had to make them twice because the measurements in the pattern weren't nearly long enough for Ella.

Here she is wearing it in the summertime at her Grump's house- with her new cowgirl hat.

And here she is wearing it to school for Barnyard theme week-

with her new cowgirl boots, of course.

I really like how this dress turned out. I found the fabric at JoAnn's and fell in love with it. It was in the nursery prints, but I can't find it online.
The applique I used is this little piggy from Planet Applique.

So, I didn't make her anything new for barnyard theme week, but luckily had this dress from the summer that was perfect!

... and just for fun... I was playing around with the Halloween themed elements on Picnik.

Here's Boo's all vamped up. Yeah... I'm pretty excited about the new Twilight movie!

and as a non-vegetarian vampire.


This Momma better get crackin' on those Halloween costumes.
