Holy Bleep

Good morning friends and family!

If I may nudge you every so slightly...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I'm over on Prudent Baby today!  I couldn't be more excited!
Thank you Jamie and Jacinda!  :D


Lisette Charlotte

((Update - go HERE to see this dress in action!))

Hello friends!

Today I made a super random, "I just need to make something right-this-second!" dress.

It's my go-to dress pattern - the Charlotte Dress form Mama Stellato.  This time, I actually made it as a dress, with the sash and everything!  Holler!  (See my shirt versions, here, here, and here!)  I know I pimp this pattern like it's my job, but I truly adore it!  It's instant gratification.

Gotta apologize for these photos.  Take one good camera with a dead battery and missing charger, and an old camera of ill-repute, and this is what you get.  Hopefully the cute shines through anyway??
I'll take pics of Em in the dress as sooooon as I can!

This fabric you may recognize is from the Lisette line that is super cute and popular, for sale at Jo-Ann.  I love it to bits!  The color is definitely not translating in these pics, but it's delightful.  Good for a Fall dress, no?  And the ribbon is just an inch wide grosgrain.  I literally just went to look at the dress to remind myself what color the ribbon was so I could explain it.  Ha!  These pictures!  The ribbon is called 'Wildberry', and the picture below is sort of the most accurate. :D   

So there you have it!  Naptime sewing, and a new Fall dress for LouLouBee!  Win!

Are yall off work tomorrow?  Have a fabulous day off if you are!



Meet Ellen! & a Halloween Powwow

Happy Friday!  Woot!
May I please introduce you to my new lady friend, Ellen:

Isn't she a dear?!  I found her on Craigslist!  And I named her after the adorable lady with whom she lived previously.  She isn't quite as endowed in the northern region as I am, so she's wearing a stuffed bra.  Which is so, so weird.  I'll get over it. :)

And she's modeling a new shirt that's going to be featured as a guest post project on another blog!  Stay tuned for that!

So now, down to business.  Halloween!
I want to whip up something for Emmy, but I am seriously running out of time!  Yall want to help me pick what to make?  Check out these costume ideas that I'm loving:

Mermaid costume!  Unfortunately, It's def going to be too cold for this unless I make it long-sleeved.  Meh... Maybe.  It's so cute though!

That shell!  I love it so much.

Now this next one is the MAJOR front runner!
Little sheep!!!

Could you just keel over from the cute?!!  Plus this little munchkin looks about Emmys size, so I know it would be comparably adorable.  I think I would just purchase the black tee, already have black leggings, and use this pattern (below) that I already have to make the sheep body, sans sleeves and pocket!:

Seriously, so cute.  And how fun would it be to fill a cart at Michael's with bags of big ol' pompoms?  Answer - wicked fun.  :D

Candy Corn costume!!!  This one is just so sweet, and I know for sure that it would whip up in like, one evening.  One evening plus wine.  Now that's an easy project.

I love the matching hat and bag!  I think I could make a long sleeved version with my go-to dress pattern, the Charlotte Dress from Mama Stellato.  Totally doable!  I'd have to source out orange tights though...  Hm.

Owl costume!!  This one is as insanely cute, but I do not harbor the required patience it would take to make it.  Not this year anyway, I'm already running late!


So what do you guys think?!  Do you love the sheep one as much as I do??
Are you making any costumes this year?

Holler attcha boo!
