Pillowcase dress & Birthday giveaway


It seemed time for a little whiplash fun. For the month of June we are just posting things we made that we are enjoying so here you go.I have had this sweet pillowcase for a year and finally got around to making it into something for M. First I thought I would do a skirt but I figure this way, next summer if its too short I can make it a skirt then. Plus I love the look of this- all cute and cool and summery. I had the perfect two tone ribbon in my stash that I think worked out so well. Basically I just cut some arm hole, turned and stitched those down and then made casing for the ribbon. Little tip for those of you with wiggly children; I tacked the ribbon down on both sides so it would be easier to get tied on her. Isn't the embroidery just too wonderful? This dress could not have come at a better time as it hit 90 plus today. Phew!
Secondly, it is my birthday on monday. The big 3-7. O.k. not so big, but it is the first time I have sort of felt like my age sounded old. I don't feel old (except for that tired thing that comes with keeping up with two energetic kids). I thought to celebrate and put a positive spin on things, I would do a little giveaway. Just leave a comment and I will do the drawing on monday or tuesday. Realistically tuesday since Monday it will be 100 degrees- it will be hard to draw a name from the pool which is where I plan to park it all day! I have been seeing people do the giveaways and its just fun . So whats the big prize? One of the yummy candles I did the labels for from B Pure and a sampler pack of my Froy and Olo stationery and tags. So Happy Birthday to me and happy giveaway to you!

I'm in Baby! I knew your birthday was coming up and am planning a little something on my blog. Check it out when you get back from the pool! What a fun way to spend your birthday. And as your older (and much wiser ;) elder (I'm 42), once you cross the 40 mark, it actually gets better! I'm finding it so liberating to age.

I wish for you a birthday filled with shouts of laughter, splashes of water, butterfly kisses, baby smiles and curling wet hair and the color of love. I'm glad you're my new friend!

I know what you mean about '37' sounding old ... I turned 38 this year and finally am starting to feel a bit old, but also more liberated in a way. :-) (You know that they are saying that 40 is the new 30, right?)Happy Birthday!

Way cute idea for a pillowcase!

Happy b-day! 37 was rough for me, but then 38, this year, wasn't so bad. Weird how that works!

I found you through the precious backtack you made, and have been working my way through your archives.

Ooh, happy birthday! That is the sweetest dress.. the gathering with the ribbon on top is the perfect touch, because it keeps it from looking *too* much like a pillowcase. Adorable! :)

The dress is just the cutest thing! I recently bought some pillow cases with dresses in mind, but haven't been brave enough to do it yet. This has made me rethink digging them out!!

Happy birthday!!
