Wow, that was already a year ago??? My how time zooms by!
This year, I decided I wanted to make something green and festive for Annelise to wear on St. Patrick's Day, but I also wanted something without shamrocks that she could wear all spring/summer. Here's what I came up with:
Here are a few more views of the outfit:
Oh yeah, there are those adorable baby toes again! It's almost warm enough here for sandals, and I can't wait to see her toes every day!
Here's what I used to make this outfit:
- Pattern: Simplicity 3854 (still in print)
- 1/2 yard of fabric (Walmart, $2.50)
- Green t-shirt (Walmart, $3.50)
- 3/8" grosgrain ribbon (Walmart, not pictured, about $4)
I loved that the fabric was not bright green, but included green to match the t-shirt, and some other colors as well. Annelise has a yellow t-shirt she can wear with the bloomers, too. After I tried them on her, I realized they totally looked like clown pants. Then I thought if a 15-month-old can't pull off clown pants, who can?
And then of course we needed a matching hair clip! I've seen lots of tutorials for rolled fabric flower pins, headbands, necklaces, etc. I followed this one at Blooming Homestead to make a fabric rosette hair clip. It's not perfect, but it's not bad for my first one.
And here's a close up -- of Annelise and the clip in her hair! (This is what she tries to do when I'm not getting her to chase goldfish!)
Until next time...
