Sew... I Made My Girl a Cute Top This Weekend

One of my new year's resolutions was to get more organized & finally tackle some of those craft projects on the 'to do' list.

Over the weekend I decided to bust my fabric stash a bit & make something fun for my girl to wear!
I chose McCall's pattern # M6062
I made the top 'A' ...only deciding that the style of the sleeves on dress 'B' were better suited to our taste, so I switched 'em out easy-peasy. My girl wanted a pocket added so she could carry some small things around. I cut out a heart shape, sewed & turned it out, then appliqued it onto the front off center.
She was pretty happy with the results! She even changed before playing outside, so she wouldn't mess it up. Now that's love!
She showed her new frock to our bunny...who approved.
Also, she showed the suncatcher we made earlier to the bunny. Bunnies love crafts don't you know?

Finally she twirled. Maybe I'll look for more fabrics to make another seeing how she's so happy with it!
Well, it's already February... we'll see what I make next in my goal to cross more crafts off the list.

Too cute! I just made my daughter a dress with the same fabric! (She found it in my stash and begged and begged for it!)
