Happy Valentine’s Day!

Last Sep­tem­ber, I was able to visit some of the girls I babysat for while I was in col­lege. These girls were some of the first peo­ple to receive my one-of-a-kind quilted hand­bags. In fact, I can remem­ber bring­ing over the fab­ric squares to their house, so that they could design their purses!

Now a few years later, they’re design­ing more than just hand­bags! This time, I asked them to design dresses!

The girls were extremely enthu­si­as­tic and drew lots of dresses (most of which were puffy & very sparkly princess dresses)!

I planned on cre­at­ing and fin­ish­ing the dresses last Novem­ber for Christ­mas gifts.

But unfor­tu­nately, that didn’t happen!

I fin­ished two dresses back in Novem­ber, but I hated the results! (I tried using pink fab­rics from my fab­ric stash and ended up with dresses that weren’t very puffy and looked too much like cos­tumes.) It wasn’t until recently I decided to pick up the dresses and fin­ish what I started!

Not only did I want the dresses to mir­ror the girls’ draw­ings, but I also wanted to cre­ate dresses that could be worn in pub­lic (maybe)!

I ended up cut­ting off the bot­tom half of the orig­i­nal dresses and replac­ing the skirts with cham­pagne & hot pink tulle.

Since I knew I’d send them off for Valentine’s Day, I decided to make a heart cutout t-shirt instead of a dress for the youngest girl.
