The Knot Top and Crafting with the Stars

I decided to try something new.  I've never made any clothes for my daughter using a pattern.  When I found the adorable double ruffle knot top at Little Lizard King, I knew that it was time to try.  I am just pleased as punch with the way it turned out.  Lillie looked so stinkin cute in it.  I made a flower to match that could go either in her hair or on the dress.  It looked cute both ways.

Here are some pictures of her wearing it.

The little cutie is just growing up too fast.

In other news, I am so excited to announce that I was chosen as one of 12 to compete in the Crafting with the Stars challenge!


I will admit that I am seriously intimidated.  Now that it has set in that I am not only competing against some amazing ladies, but also that my first project has to be finished by Sunday I am feeling a little overwhelmed!  Yikes!  I bet you all know what I am going to doing for the next couple of days.  Not dishes.  That's for sure.

The projects will be posted on Monday for everyone to vote on.  Head on over to Sew Dang Cute and check out the competition. 
(I will remind you about the voting on Monday.)
Wish me Luck!  I'm gonna need it!
Pin It!

What a sweet top for your precious little girl-I'd call that a definite success at sewing from a pattern. I haven't sewn in awhile but this has given me the itch again! I just found your blog through t&j and can't wait to look at all your posts soon.

Oh man! I really shouldn't look at the linky parties anymore. I have fabric that would be perfect for that shirt. My daughter is about the same age, so I can totally see her in this. Guess I will add it to "the list" as I like to call it. It is so long that the short might have to be for Christmas, but that is okay.
Good luck with Crafting with the Stars! I love to follow the projects. Always so creative. I am sure you will do well:)
