One of my sweet friends made Evie this fun and funky bow. However, she owned nothing those colors! So a quick trip to one of my favorite stores (Hobby Lobby), and a little sewing time later, a fun skirt to match. This style of skirt was SO easy to make- and looks adorable with leggings underneath. Perfect for my little active gal... I hope to make more of these in the future!

Miss Evangeline was in desperate need of some Very Big Bibs. She has recently begun to be fascinated with the idea of feeding herself, which usually involves some pretty heavy damage to whatever adorable outfit mommy has picked out for her. Normal sized bibs will just not cut it. Plastic bibs are firmly refused by the little lady. As such, mommy was forced to bring back out her sewing machine, after an 18 month or so hiatus, and get to work!
I used a bib given to me by a friend as a pattern. I enlarged it a tad, and lots of flannel leftovers later, we have 5 new bibs, double layered flannel, bias tape ties, with heart stitching on the middles. You can kind of see the disappearing pen in the picture, which will hopefully be disappearing soon!
Here is my little model, enjoying her new bib. So much so that she wore it all afternoon, and never wanted to take it off. This mommy is quite satisfied. Who knows, this may lead to more projects! I had kind of forgotten how much fun it was to sew. And well... I've got enough fabric to supply... one... or two projects maybe... :)
