This blog is now exclusively devoted to crafting in general, and the shop in particular! Pretty much all of my personal content has been moved to a new blog, one that is intended primarily to help keep our family and friends in the loop. (If you are interested in following the new blog, you will find it here.) This blog will continue to feature shop news, new listings, sales, giveaways, and all of my share-worthy crafting exploits.

Elora's Dress

Faded Daydreams action from thecoffeeshopblog
My mom gave me some gingham fabric back when I was pregnant with Elora, with the intention that I should use it to make things for her or for the nursery.  I never did anything with it, though, and I've been toying around with ideas for it lately.  So, I went a little crazy yesterday, and turned my computer desk into a sewing station.  It made me nuts not to have my computer set up, but I so enjoyed the sewing I did, that it didn't matter.

I decided to make a little another little smocked dress for Elora.  She never really got to wear the ones I made last year, but they'll work for Kaylie this year.  Kaylie is a lot bigger than Elora was at 3 months, and while she isn't nearly as big as Elora was at 15 months, she's big enough that the dresses look ok on her. (I'll photograph the dresses side-by-side later, for comparison.)  I have three more gingham fabrics to play with, and lots of elastic thread, so I think I'll be making more of these...for both the girls.
