Do you ever accidentally put two fabrics together and it totally works? One day I set these two fabrics down in the same stack and it was meant to be. The grounds for both fabrics happen to match perfectly and so do the purples. I love how these look together. I’m not sure what I did right to get her to put the dress ON — there’s currently a backlog of about six other garments I’ve recently finished for her that she absolutely won’t wear (even when full-scale mini-marshmallow bribery is being attempted) — but she did and that’s what’s important. It was kind of her to indulge me on this one. Even if I had to chase her around with the camera (hence the sheer glee that follows in these photos).
Speaking of getting her to wear things that I’ve made, if you’re one of my pals on Twitter or Instagram (yes, yes, le sigh, I caved to Instagram…) you’ll have already seen that she now wears without complaint the pink bonnet previously loathed and hated. Oh, how I WISH I knew what on earth had changed!!?! She just decided one day that she’d wear it, and that was that. Ah the joys of having a 2 year old.
I know many of you are sensitive to my “Pinterest issues” (thank you!), so I thought I’d mention that all of these pictures of Clementine are all fine to pin if you’d like. Thanks everyone!
