Step 1: I cut out two legs from a black t-shirt (you can find my t-shirt pant tutorial here).
Step 2: I cut an 8.5 x 11″ piece of freezer paper and printed my template directly onto it (make sure to print on the paper side…NOT the waxy side or you’ll have a real mess). I cut the template in half…. one flame for each leg.
I really wish I was just a LITTLE more patient. I was working on this top….. the idea was sort of an “inside-out” top. Wow….. it was SO cute until I thought it was just a little too flowy….. then I was a rotary-cutter-happy refusing-to-measure-anything-out-stubborn crazy person…. and then it just turned into a disaster. A huge frumpy-lopsided-wonky-frustrating mess. Maybe it can be salvaged into a dress for Sienna……but I am SO OVER this project for now.
Inspecting a “googly” eye:
Her finished page, and I’m still sane!
I made these pillowcases dresses a while back….. and was so surprised to to receive baby Sydney’s birth announcement with both sisters (Samantha is the big sister) wearing them! I had to share these photos….I rarely get to see gifts on the children I actually made them for.
Our friends Mike and Jen found out during pregnancy that Sydney had a congenital heart defect that would need surgery or several surgeries right after she was born. Sydney was born on June 19th and a few days after being born, Sydney’s parents and the cardiologist decided to do a small procedure to add an artery band to control a condition that sometimes causes too much oxygenated blood to the lungs. It is a temporary fix and the band will allow Sydney to be able to grow a little more so that when she is between 4 months and a year old she can have her ventricle defect repaired. Sydney was released from the ICU and was home with her family on July 4th! She is doing so well! She is a healthy little miracle baby 😉 Thanks for the cute photos Jen! XOXO
