Fresh As a Daisy

This is the latest addition to my Etsy Shoppe. I had such a good time making this set -- it reminded me of the matching outfits that I used to make my kids when they were little. I love the Little Guy's cap.

The dress collar is fashioned from a cut-work embroidered, vintage handerchief that I found last summer at the flea market. The blue in the collar is an excellent match for the blue stripes in the seersucker fabric. I thought the flower headband was a great way to update this otherwise traditional outfit.

I needed to chase away my winter doldrums by sewing something that was fresh and airy like the spring I am soooooooooooooo longing for. ;D

They are lovely! So springy and cheerful!

That is precisely what I was hoping to do by creating something each week until spring-but I have yet to do something so springy and wonderful. I think I might like to make matchy matchy Easter outfits for all the children.

I go to the store and drool over easter things but you spend $20.00 (at best) a pop but that adds up with three children. AND, now that Corynn is getting older, the styles are getting....not very "pretty" and much more teenager-y. I refuse to allow my six year old to dress like a you-know-what. I think we need to somehow reinvent lovely clothing lines for older girls~there is SUCH a lack.

Anyway. (THAT was a tangent)
I was thinking simple dresses for girls and a matching tie (or vest) for Andrew.

Do you think I have it in me?!

Absolutely adorable, as usual!

LOL, my word verification is 'ceate.' It's only missing the "R"!

My big exciting project in the past days has been potholders. I have some of that insulated batting stuff. I'm trying to do a St. Pat's theme with green and gold.
I'm also working on an apron, which I'll blog about soon. It's one of those 'slowly but surely' projects.
Hope you are doing well!

I think the matching outfits for Easter are a wonderful idea. Do I think you have it in you? I KNOW you have it in you!!!!
I am always amazed at how much you have grown in your sewing abilities in just a couple of short years. Your advantage is in your wonderful creative spirit. Can't Wait to see the outfits when you've finished them.


So glad you dropped in for a visit. I always get a little blurb when you've posted something new, and then I drop by for a visit. I really miss the Sew Crafty Friday posts, I always loved to see what you were working on. I'll be watching to see your St. Pat's Day theme items and the apron. I LOVE aprons.
