Sewing projects!


While we were in Hawaii I visited two fabric stores that specialize in Hawaiian fabrics. I bought some to make me, Andi, and Reece matching mu mu's for the summer. Not sure I spelled that correctly! However, in the process I found a new designer named Amy Butler. She has patterns and fabrics for really great purses, baby bags, etc. She also has a line of clothing, bedding, toys, etc for 0 - 12 month olds. I made this up today for Reece. A little kimono p.j. set! I loved how it turned out and can't wait to make other things from her line.

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen! The fabric is adorable and there is nothing cuter than a kimono wrap top! We were sad we couldn't be at Allison's reception, the weather was so bad we couldn't get to Oregon for Christmas at all! But hopefully we'll end up moving out there soon enough. Much love!

That is seriously darling!! Love the fabric. It looks like you two had a wonderful time in Hawaii. So jealous of your tans. How is it that the two of you from Oregon always seem to have better tans than the two of us who live in AZ??
Happy Anniversary--30 years--pretty amazing huh?

I just read the WalMart poo story & decided the comments left pretty much covered it... so I'll comment on your little kimono outfit~ How CUTE! I LOVE Amy Butler fabrics. They are so fun & whimsical. If you want to start obsessing on what she has you can buy a lot of her fabric designs on eBay. I also like Lilly Pulitzer fabrics for little girls~ it's so "Florida chic"! And I'm sure that sewing for adorable little grandbabies is addictive!
