I just about died when I saw this fabric from Alexander Henry!  The fairies on rollerskates, the little birdies in tree tops, and cute starflowers.  Haley loved the fairies too…..I knew she would.


And I’ve had this pattern sitting on my to-do list for way too long. I thought it would be perfect to show the fairies (which are about 6 inches in size). I made the longer version to make it a dress. I’m thinking it is a tiny bit too long…but that also means she won’t outgrow it tomorrow. :-)

I had planned to use one of the starflower calico prints – but Haley decided to help me while I was preparing the fabric. She ended up picking an Anna Maria Horner polka dot and I think it looks great!!! During this process she informed me that she doesn’t like brown, but she likes fashion brown. (Which apparently means tan with pink polka dots?!?!?)

That darn kat pattern

Turned out pretty cute. Now to go weed out some of her older clothes to make room for all the fun new clothes.

    That fabric is just great. I love the monkeys. It’s about time ‘they’ came out with some suitable fabric for boys, isn’t it? Great job on the lunch bag!


  2. Very, very cute.. she’s just a little doll baby, you know it? I love everything about this pic.. the dress of course is fabulous.. but the expression on her face, with those sweet little cheeks, and her hair, and the tattoo on the arm… Baby doll!!


  3. What a handsome fellow he is & the lunch bag is a clever idea!
