Originally slated to make some new cloth diapers for Lennon, I couldn't resist making something out of it that wouldn't be ultimately be covered up; now I'm going to have a hard time parting with this set when my Etsy shop opens (September 1st!) I purchased the fabric from The Fabric Fairy. They carry an amazing selection of cotton knits. I may just have to order some more of this. I still have enough for a couple of diapers, but now I'm pretty sure Lennon needs one of these outfits too!

Pretty Little Dress

This so makes me wish, for the gazillionth time, that I had a little girl. Sized to fit around 12 months, this was constructed from two prints from Laura Gunn's "Lantern Bloom" collection; painted polka dots in brown and tile mosaic in turquoise.
I adore the colors in this collection and wish I had ordered more than a half yard of each. Just enough to make a baby dress, not enough to make a me dress. The fabric covered buttons are so much fun to make too!
This little beauty will be in my Etsy shop when it opens in a couple of weeks.


And, in the 6 month size, from the same collection, using Climbing Lantern Pods in Turquoise and Textured Stripes in Turquoise:
