Easter, Spring, and Birthday Month Wreath

It seems only fitting that I have three little, spring-born girls. (Well, 2-going-on-3)

The colors, the cuteness .... it lends itself to little girl life. 

So this is our Easter, Spring, and Birthday Month Wreath. 

Pink yarn-wrapped wreath and rolled flowers in hot pink polkadot, yellow polkadot, and aqua polkadot.

The other thing I love is that our door is also aqua - though this photo doesn't do the color justice. The aqua flowers and the color palate match so well!

Rag Puff Quilt

The ragging process isn't complete yet, but my scissors were a bit dull so I was ready to take the scissors to my eyes with all the snips that needed done. ;) I used HoneyBear Lane's pattern here. I won it in a giveaway! I highly recommend it! Super easy to understand. The hardest part is just holding down the quilt while you're sewing some of the last pieces. It only took me a few days to complete.

Matching Easter Dresses [Custom Order]

 This dress was designed from a vintage pattern (Simplicity, copyright 1974).

These bloomers are a new pattern but I added the ribbons on the legs.

Since the sisters these were made for are 6 and 2, their dress designs were best to be different, while utilizing the same fabric. Big Sister chose the dress design she wanted. It was originally meant to look like the Kit Kittredge (American Girl) journalist dress.

And for good measure: A dress for Big Sister's American Girl doll to match.
