March Madness

Madness it was.  March was one crazy month with lots of highs and lots of lows.  Beginning to see some kind of normalcy returning to this household, including with the weather lol.

We did a lot this March...we celebrated, worked, cried, questioned, trusted, rejoiced.  Even with all that there was a little time for sewing.  Much needed mami break when I could get it.

Skirt number 3 finally got finished.  This one is super special as one of little one's close friends has an exact one, need to get a picture of both of them wearing them.  For now, here is the skirt.

Also on this month's agenda was little monkey's Easter dress.  She had expressed interest in a pattern we saw at Hobby Lobby and well I just could not say no.  She knows what she likes!  After some hours of work, the dress was finished just in time for Easter Sunday.  Was cutting it close!

New Life

I love taking something old and making something new again.  I knew I wanted to make something special and useful for my little ones 3 year birthday.  Set out to find a Little Tykes table that I could make special for our little girl.  These tables are everyone, difference sizes and styles.  A gracious friend had one she was ready to get rid off, or as she put it...get it out of her yard.  Perfect!  

So after picking the fabric and colors for the table, it was just getting down and 'dirty.'  Disassembled the table, cleaned the table, cut out fabric and vinyl, staple on, spray paint base, reassemble.  Love how the colors came out, and hope it has many more years of use!
