Girls Live?

Pink Fig Sweatshirt pattern

Yeah, I don’t know.  I have the book, Where the Wild Things Are (and the movie) on my brain.  I haven’t actually seen the movie.  And based on one of my friend’s review – I won’t see it until it comes out on DVD.   But the fabric I used is from a collection called Wildwood, so it seems fitting.

Maybe.

And I am actually a little dizzy in the head.  I fear I might be catching something.

Okay forget my craziness….back to the cute little outfit Haley is wearing!  

It’s from the new Pink Fig pattern Scrapbook Jeans & a Sweatshirt.  I still need to add a big button to the front – or a fabric flower like my friend Anna.  But it wasn’t done – and the temperature was below 70 degrees (I am raising an Arizona girl!) so Haley wanted to wear it today.     :-)

I used fabric from Erin McMorris’ Wildwood collection (oh I already told you that, didn’t I?) and instead of a sweatshirt (we are in AZ afterall) I used a raglan shirt I had on hand.  (Pssst – they are also listed in my store in the new Notions section at a great price!) 

And the hood!  The hood is lined with minky fabric.

The minky will be available in my store  soon- in smaller cuts (in other words, more afforable!)  I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s up.

As usual – I opted to size up when making this for Haley.  That way, I figure it’ll last her longer.  I realize, however, that I need to stop doing that because I make her so many things – she needs to outgrow them!  If that makes any sense.     ;-)   

Oh – I almost forgot to share – I got many of the prints from Erin’s Park Slope collection in the shop now!  They are no longer being printed so I got a great deal on them!  And I’m passing it on to you guys.  Plus this week if you use the code ERIN when you check out, you’ll get an additional 20% off (good on both her Park Slope and her Wildwood collections!)

Now my head is really spinning.  I’ve got to go find some medicine.  Talk at you again soon!

 

PS.  There is still time to enter the grandest giveaway ever!  And remember – someone has to win. (Actually 5 people will win! ) Yes, international entries are accepted and yes, I know I’m crazy to give away this awesome fabric and the patterns too.  I might have to have my head checked.  Thank you very much.  Plus your chances are way better with me than with, say, Ree.
