Birdie Spring Ensemble

Yes - this baby sewing is proving to be addicting. I sewed up another quick spring break outfit for Harper. As you can see, she was not too interested in posing for this one - but I still want to eat her up. Love her leg chub!

I *heart* this outfit - love the pattern(s) and model and fabric. The fabric is my favorite colors - I picked it up at my local fabric outlet a long while back and almost forgot about it. We do have pillows at the cabin out of this same print - so Harper will blend in on the sofa when we can finally venture to the lake again. We'll have to do a "where's Waldo" pic of that when we head north.

The top is a tutorial/pattern from here...I can see myself whipping up some fun bias tape and making piles of these. I added a ruffle to the bottom. I even managed to change my serger needle and setting (which I am normally too lazy to do) and used the rolled hem on the ruffle. Whoa! I realized when I went to find the link to the tute to blog this, that I modified it...huh. I downloaded the pattern so long ago, I just kind of winged it - sewing it from the pattern only without looking at the pics or directions. Now I want to make one like Petchy did - cute!

I used the Diaper Cover pattern from here (again) and can see making these in mass quantities as well. Easy, fast, and forgiving... my kind of project.

One more shot of Miss Harper and her Birdie Ensemble!

The carpal tunnel has finally left, so I have some long overdue embroidery and crocheting to do - which will possibly work better than sewing projects with the constant nursing we have going on. We'll have to see how we do with skeins of yarn and flailing baby limbs!
