Can I just tell you how much I love sewing for little girls???
Don't get me wrong, I love sewing dinosaurs and fun boy stuff too, but I've been waiting 7 years to get a chance to make some girlie goodness :)
I made this corduroy jumper for Sofia. I needed eight 1" buttons and being
cheap frugal like I am, I couldn't see myself paying $15.00 for fun buttons on a dress she will grow out of in a few months.
So I was excited to find 1" buttons at M & L yardage in packages of 2 for .30 cents. The problem is that they were boring plain white buttons. So I decided to stack some cute red hearts on top of them to make them really stand out against the solid jumper. She has really cute tights with hearts on them that will match perfectly with this jumper.
("Nana" bought them for her before she was even born!)
Another cool thing about M & L yardage is that all their notions are 20% off everyday so I got all the buttons I needed for this jumper for only $3.72! Now that's more like it!!!
I'm making another one in the turquoise corduroy with the cherries on it for Evie.
