Ruffly... Ruffles!

Okay... right now.. I'm obsessed with Ruffles on this child of mine. (I KINDA feel bad for my kid... as of lately I've been sewing a ton of clothes for her sweet little tush... but she is not loving being my personal mannequins.) Anyways... yesterday I "threw" together this sweet little duo (*Please remember that I am a self taught sewing lady... still learning!):

*Isn't she the stink'n cutest!? 

Again I used left over fabric scraps. This whole thing totaled... maybe $3.00 or less :) I took one of her gross stained up onesies and layered  simple ruffles, homemade rosettes and ribbon. The bottom I measured...and sewed in some elastic around the waist.. and Wa-la-la-la= cheap cuteness! 

Anyways here are some fun sites I've found that give great pointers/tutorials for some quick sews. I like to find tutorials that don't require patterns.. Am I the only person in the world that dislikes following sewing patterns!?  

**Defining: "Threw Together": This entails lots of patiences..yelling.. diet coke and my husband taking the child. :)

Little Ladies Clothes

I really enjoy sewing. I feel somewhat accomplished... when sewing.. especially my sweet little thang a sweet little outfit. 

However I'm not a fan of spending hrs on something and having her destroy it in less than 5 seconds :)

I have so much girly fabric scraps left over from previous projects that I wanted to make use of them. 

So last night I "threw" together an outfit. And I love it. It kinda like a pillow case dress but with lots of ruffles and the bows are permanent. They are super easy to make and it took about an hour from start to finish. (And doesn't she looks adorable?).
My instructions are pretty vague but I think is a super simple project... I took one of HelenAnn's shirts and used it as my "pattern". And then took all my scraps and started ruffling the crap out of this thing. And added a little pink ribbon.. and ta-da! 

Well here are some sites that gives super cute and easy tutorials.
