LITTLE STYLE :: Watching Ants…and Making Harem/Genie Pants

The other night, Aveline’s energy was just too much for the four walls of the house to contain. So we went for a walk at sunset.

She watched ants. Toddler watching ants on sidewalk

She poked them. Handmade toddler harem genie pants

And then she danced home at her papa’s side.

(P.S. Her harem/genie/HAMMERTIME! pants that I was tweeting about last week are a modification of this pattern from Pretty Bobbins. I added several inches to the legs to make them full-length pants, and extended the pattern all around to increase the size.)

handmade baby gown upcycled from women’s dress [with link to tutorial]

thanks to a great tutorial i found here, i was able to create a baby gown/infant sack from one of my old dresses!  the tutorial was intended for cotton t-shirts, but of course i had to make things way more complicated and use a silky chiffon-like fabric.  seriously, what was i thinking?! i love the way it turned out, though. and i also love that since i got the original dress at a thrift store ages ago, the baby gown is it’s third life!
