Little Dude's Birthday!

I just had to take a moment to show y'all the quilt I made for the Little Man. He's newly into Lightning McQueen (not Cars. JUST Lightning McQueen, Mom.)He's turning 4 this week and has been begging me for months on end to buy this fabric and make something for him. Little did he know I already had! I finished this quilt back in August and have been so excited to give it to him. Just a few more days!
XOXO, Megan

Chevron and Ruffles

I have a 2-in-1 post for y'all today. In keeping with the Cotton Candy Ruffle pants, I've got Girly showing off some adorable chevron.
Aren't they cute? And check out this back pocket!
And, last but not least, the Ruffle Tee. This is Girly's very favorite shirt.
I've got a few more pants on the line, then I'll be working on more clutches! Take a look at these combinations for the clutches!
And... my favorite...
I'm such a sucker for hedgehogs.

Cotton Candy Ruffle Pants

I tried out a new pattern last night, made some significant adjustments, and I just love the way it turned out! Introducing: The Cotton Candy Pants!
I love how whimsical and playful these sweet pants are. These will definitely be going up for sale in different patterns and colors! Just a few more weeks!

Twirling Dresses

I am LOVING making these twirling dresses! I don't think Girly minds them too much, either!
I've started making more of these for the Etsy shop... getting ready, y'all!

Tutu Epiphany

Y'all, I can't even begin to tell you how stupid I feel right now. I just had a revelation... that apparently Hubby already knew. And, in this case, that is S-A-D. Ok, so I love dressing the Little Missy in those little tutus you can buy at Target or Walmart. Those are the cutest things and she loves twirling in them. But whenever I've tried to make them, she can only get a single wear out of them before they get scrunched and dirty and nasty. And I DID NOT GET IT! I could not find a single tutorial that ever mentioned that happening. Ever. So for nearly three years, I thought I was just buying the wrong kind of tulle. So I gave up tutu making. I buy them instead. Until... until I just happened to randomly see a tutorial on Pinterest for a CHIFFON skirt. CHIFFON, y'all! So I got all worked up and excited and bounced over to Hubby to tell him about this amazing epiphany I just had. "Yeah... I know, Sweet Thing." "What?" "I already knew it was chiffon. You didn't?" "NO! Why didn't you tell me me?!" "I guess I didn't think about it." Gah! I love that man. Maybe he should be the one doing this. Since he obviously is more attuned to tutu fabric than me. Chiffon, y'all.

Blue Daisy Burlap Wreath

I spent most of the morning up at the school helping Hubby organize the supply closet in his classroom. The kids were just happy to have their own personal theater on the Smart Board, watching Lady & The Tramp. After a quick lunch together, the cuties and I came home for their nap while I whipped up this little beauty.
Isn't it cute? I made this for a friend and I think it's just adorable... I'm kind of struggling with the idea of giving it away, actually.

Coming Soon to an Etsy Shop Near You!

Over the past few weeks there has been a lot interest, from friends and family, in the projects I've been making. And a lot of encouragement (and ego stroking) from my wonderful hubby. So I've decided to reopen my Etsy shop and blog about my projects here. Who knows, maybe I'll throw in some free tutorials sometimes too! My shop, RufflesAtNaptime, is in the works, and I plan to open in September! Til then, here are just a few things you can expect to see from me in the future!
