Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

Holiday Outfits

I didn't get too much sewing done during the month of December.  I wanted too, but my motivation level just wasn't there...

One thing I did sew was a Holiday Dress for my little miss.  I had the Aubrey Bow Dress Pattern from the Ruby Jean Pattern Shop and I thought a version made from stretch velvet would be perfect for our holiday photos.  I was able to find just the right shade of green velvet at my local fabric shop to coordinate with a new button down and sweater set I had bought for my son.  Hubby even had a similar polo shirt in the closet with the tag still on it!!!  (I think it was an Christmas present from at least 5 years ago- time to clean out his closet, I think...)


The dress came out so pretty, and she loved the fabric!





I was taking these pictures with my remote, so I didn't notice until I was editing that the little turkey had stuck her tongue out in a bunch of the pictures at the end.  The final result was kind of cute, but she better be glad I didn't catch her doing it while we were taking the pictures.  (I'm sure you know how hard it can be to take pictures of your little ones and get them to cooperate...  Multiply that times five when you are trying to be in the pictures as well!)




I have so many projects on my wish to do list, I need to sit down and make a list.  Then maybe start with organizing my craft room!
