I loved the way it turned out. Which meant I just couldn't stop with one. Remember the watermelon dress I had been working on (using the Little Geranium Dress Pattern from Made by Rae)?
I couldn't help but throw together a cute little ruffled diaper cover to go underneath.
And of course, she would have to have a matching bonnet since this pattern had gone together so smoothly and so quickly.
I just can't wait to dress her in this outfit for summer barbeques. Finally, I decided to make one very special dress and bonnet using the scraps from my mom's Mother's Day quilt.
Luckily I had a lot of leftovers from the border of the quilt.
I added orange to the dress instead of pink or red just to give her a pop of a more summery color.
I really did love making these bonnets and they are a great way to use up some of the larger quilt scraps. The tutorial was extremely well written, easy to follow and created such a beautifully finished bonnet. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered myself a mother's day gift, the Cottage Mama's (Lindsay Wilkes) book, "Sew Classic Clothes for Girls". I am just dying for it to get here. I also found a few more patterns on her site that she offered for free that I cannot wait to try out.
