Ok, not the best picture in the world, but my model will not cooperate lately and stand still for a shot. I love this dress. It's going to be Charlotte's Valentine's dress but I wanted something she could still wear after the holiday. I will post Ruby's outfit when I'm finished. This is the Esmee Cottage dress by Amelie and Henri http://www.amelieandhenri.com/#!products/c1se I just think the pattern is so cute. My first time doing pleats, and may I say not my favorite. I owe a big THANKS to my friend, Ina, who helped me hold and press with my arms not working so well from surgery. I got all the fabric from Hobby Lobby.

I found this pattern on pinterest for a swaddle blanket. http://mammacandoit.blogspot.pt/2013/02/swaddling-blanket-pattern-finally.html?spref=fb&m=1 It was pretty easy to make and I have a whole bolt of this fabric laying around so I thought I would burn through it and make Lucas a few of these. He's not happy with me snapping the flash in his face :) But he's snug as a bug!
I found this tutorial on pinterest http://seaside-stitches.blogspot.ca/2013/03/fabric-box-tutorial.html I changed the size to a 20x20 which made the finished size a 9x9. I plan to reorganize my craft room and use these baskets. I added a paper tag to the front so I can label the basket.
