May Arts Finalist Post and Projects!

Hellooooooooo bloggy world!

I have been working on these projects for the May Arts Finals to get onto their DT! If you feel like it, pop over and see all of the finalists' projects! They should be posted in the next few days. DT members are announced July 29th. 

First up is the dress. I was looking forward to making this pleated dress and having the PERFECT 3/8" ribbon for it was just the excuse I needed to unpack the sewing machine! (p.s. I promise those buttons are on straight on the back! This picture is driving me crazy!) There are little bows on the pockets and in the middle of the front. They are a little hard to see them in the picture, but you can see them in the video below! :) 

May Arts Ribbon Used: BH09

The second project I made was a bow to match the dress. I LOVE mixing classic patterns so the stripes were clearly calling to go with the polka dots. The dress is not on Emmaline in the pictures below because she was swimming in it! It's a 3T so she will need to grow into it. 

May Arts Ribbon Used: BH09, 365-2-03, and 376-1-01

Here is the last project that I made: A card to go with the bow for someone's birthday! Wouldn't it make a cute gift to give a card that uses the same ribbon as the bow!? I like it. 

May Arts Ribbon Used: 365-2-03, 382-34-94

I love the blue polkadots, can't wait to see party pics. and yes I had so many ideas in my head for her party, I really had to wittle it down and pick the faves that I could get done after bed time :) Happy Birthday to both our girls!!
