well hello there!
It's been quite a month for me, here in my new world. Akira and I are getting to know each other a bit more each day, so much to learn and discover! Thanks to everyone who left such lovely comments, last I checked, he's still pretty damn cute.
Now that I'm starting to get into a groove and gaining some confidence (I've learned that's all any new parent really needs, easier said that done) I've been finding sporadic bits of time to sketch and dream up ideas again
Here's a gi-normous tote I made for the summer, great for stuffing the piles of acoutrement needed to leave the house, with baby in tow. The bag is made out of vintage fabrics, the outer fabric is a printed linen. The double 5 (one on each side) is an
homage to my boy, born on 5-5-08.
Aki grew out of the gingham hat I made for him before I could even put it on him, so here's his newest summer hat. I do love using the same fabrics over and over, it never gets old, I also love how all the things I've made are connected like this guy that I made for keith and this apron that I made for my mom.
I've been dreaming up these outfits, have you ever played on polyvore? I don't recommend it if you don't want to waste hours playing cyber dress up! It's terrible!
I was so excited when I saw this dress at Target two days ago, it reminded me of Jenny's Wiksten world and Wendy Mullin's world, but I got even more excited when I saw this and this and this! I just had to join in!
