Spotted Elephant

One of my very good friends had a birthday in February (why yes, that was the last time I was consistently blogging) and I made her a present.

inspired by the movie Rudolph.
We were watching it together over the holidays and she kept mentioning how cute she thought it was. Aaron and I were like “we could make that” so we did. I did all the sewing and Aaron helped stuff him and paint him. He’s so cute!

Grey bird dress

Part three of my dress making spree!

I know I already made a bird dress, but I’m really drawn to fabric with birds on it for some reason. I knew I had to make something out of this fabric when I saw it in Joann’s and a dress seemed to be the perfect fit. 
I’m really proud of myself on this one. I really spent a lot of time on making this and I think it really shows. I even used interfacing and lining in the top of the dress! It’s very flattering on me too.
