Infant Sun Dress and Diaper Cover

A couple of weeks ago, I wanted a quick little project. I decided to play around with a couple patterns and see if I liked them. This dress, and this diaper cover.

The beauty of infant clothes is that they come together quickly. Very satisfying. 

Luckily, my neighbor has a new baby, so I gave the outfit to her in exchange for some photos of them. Isn't she the cutest baby?

The patterns were easy to follow. I will probably make both again, but I think next time I will skip the ruffle on the diaper cover. It made the back waistband really bulky. 


Easy No-Slip Tablet/Phone Prop

Honestly, this might not even be worthy of a post, but I was feeling pretty proud of myself when I made this little prop for my tablet, so I thought I'd share. I have a Color Nook and I was finding myself grabbing random household items to hold it up while I emailed or what have you at the dining room table. Eventually, all the things I grabbed would slip and not stay put. Frustrating! Here, friends, is my solution to such a stressful first-world problem. :)

How to Make an Easy, No-Slip Tablet/Phone Prop

You will need:
1 rubber bouncy ball
serrated knife

1. Cut small edge off ball so it doesn't roll (I lopped off about 1/5 of the ball).
2. Prop up your smart device and feel happy that it is staying at the perfect angle.

Happy Tuesday!


Chevron Dress

I've been wearing this dress for about a month straight now - that's how much I love it! Yet another variation of the washi dress, and my favorite one so far! For this one I skipped the bodice facing and just finished the collar with bias tape. 

Also, you will notice in the photos that my summer look includes pig tails and no makeup. :) Welcome to my world. I can't be bothered with those details when there are berries to pick and children to chase.
