Creating unique clothing and gifts for little Bug-A-Boos!

Thanks to a handy charm pack with pre-cut squares, I was able to finish this patchwork dress really quickly!
I kind of just made this up as a I went along, but next time would probably do a few things differently. I'm not really happy with the way the dress joins at the bodice, and would probably have added an extra square there to give it a little more flair. It looks pretty cute on my daughter though.
This fabrics are Moda fabrics from a charm pack called Summer in the City. I really love the prints! Here's a detail so you can see some close up.
More of these dresses are definitely in my future, and I'll probably list a few on Etsy as well. In fact, Joann's was having a sale on Fat Quarters last week, so I stocked up. Stay tuned for what comes next!
I am a full time, working mom. When I'm not at work I love crafting, especially sewing, knitting and crocheting. I spend almost all of my free time with my husband and daughter. We love spending time outdoors, going to the aquarium, the zoo, and Disneyland. We try to travel whenever we can.
