Dress & diaper cover

I finished this little set today (Simplicity pattern 3509).





















It's a dress and diaper cover set. The fabric was easy to work with and the project overall was easy and fun! It's for sweet little Hannah and I truly hope it fits her well.

I really liked how the dress turned out. It is hard to see in the pic, but the sleeves are cute little cap sleeves with elastic in them. There is a zipper in the back. (Zippers are my nemesis, but this one looks okay) It's very simple, but I think very cute.

Tutorial: Pacifier clip

Super QUICK and EASY paci clip tutorial

#1 - Gather your materials: * Piece of fabric atleast 3" x 8".  This is a great way to use up scrap fabric.  (Can be longer than 8" if you'd prefer a longer strap.) * Scrap piece of ribbon atleast 5" that coordinates with the fabric. * A clip * Thread to match fabric Here are the clips I used, you can buy them various places but I found these at Wal-mart.

#2 - Prep your materials * Cut fabric to 3" x 8"  (OR - I usually cut to 4" x 8" because I like the thickness it gives the strap) * Cut ribbon to 5" * Cut fabric near clip to remove it


#3 - Prepare the strap
* Fold short ends of fabric in 1/4" or less & press with iron.  (This is to hide the raw edges)

* If you cut the width to 3" then fold the long ends of the fabric in 1/2" on each edge OR if you cut the width to 4" then fold the long ends into where they meet in the middle.  Press with iron.  (3" width shown here)
