Imagine Gnats is doing a great blog tour to launch of her new Roly Poly Pinafore pattern. I wrote all about the one I made during Kids Clothes Week here. It’s a great, easy pattern with clear, well-written instructions and we get TONS of compliments on it wherever we go. Aside from the extreme cuteness I like that, for a baby, it can be worn with or without a shirt underneath depending on the weather. I know it’s going to get lots of use this summer.
The best news though? I have a copy of the pattern to give away to you! Just leave a comment below to be entered to win and tell everyone your ideas for the fabric combo you will use on this reversible pinafore. For another entry like NeurosesGalore on Facebook and leave a comment here telling me. I’ll choose a winner at the end of the blog tour 5/31.
Here’s the whole blog tour schedule. I can’t wait to see what everyone else made! There’s lots to see in the Imagine Gnats Flickr group too and if you (sad face) don’t win, you can buy the pattern here.
We are so, so glad to have the dad part of our family back around these parts. He was in San Fransisco for 2.5 weeks. We managed but are so glad to have him home. We enjoyed a nice day even if it did involve rescuing the Prius from the long term parking lot at the airport. There was also Mexican food, a margarita and a trip to Target so, all in all, pretty good.
I love these kids. Bennett was her sweet self. Avery wore a purple dress-up Rapunzel/ballerina combo over her pink poly princess nighty with a pair of jelly sandals to the playground. Chase tasted ketchup* for the first time in five years and, in the spirit of being adventurous and having Mexican food for lunch, declared it spicy and delicious. Later, during a rousing round of money flash cards that she insisted on trying, in response to my gentle prodding toward the answer she declared JUST GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!
I’m up to my ears in party supplies for a certain little person’s birthday party next weekend. I can’t even believe it. I’m just going to eat so much cake this week. That’s how I think I’ll handle this. The girls keep talking about how she’ll be a big girl. They are so excited. There are presents hiding all over the house.
Happy Mother’s Day, friends. I love you all.
