Dress for Rose

I had put the fabrics and ribbons together a little while ago and thought that they looked really funky together, but I didn't know what to make of it.
Then I found this beautiful pattern and new it would be perfect. I changed it around a bit and Rose tried it on today.
She loved it!
I think I am going to make a couple more for the Maitland Markets.
Ow yeah, for those of you who didn't know, Marleen and I will be on the Maitland Markets the first Sunday of December.
I am looking forward to it :)


When I made 'the princess on the pea' t-shirt a bit ago I also thought of making Rapunzel in her tower. The hair had to be wool and the tower out of fabric.
I finally came around to make them today and I am so happy with the outcome.
I couldn't stay true to the real fairytale as I left the door of the tower ajar...

The cutest little fairy

How gorgeous are the Jacaranda's!
I saw them bloom for the first time three years ago and I was stunned by it's beauty.

When I drove home the other day into Lorn with all the Jacaranda's in bloom, listening to "Casta Diva" on the CD player and my beautiful Rose in the back seat I felt inspired to make this singlet for her.

Rose loves the fairy wings singlet. "Just like Tinkerbell!"

I made a more colourful singlet with wings and pom poms for the little rose label and placed it on my made it store.
Have a beautiful day :)
