I usually don't have much luck finding really nice fabric at the 2 local chain fabric stores. But for some reason, this fall Hancock Fabrics value aisle was very good to me.
Not only did I find the knit print that I used for myself but I got some cream colored baby rib knit that's super soft. The bolt said it was 100% cotton but it's so soft and drapes so nice that I think there's a bit of rayon in it.
The shirt is Ottobre Design 01/03 #16 in a size 98 with 2 inches add to the bottom and sleeve hems for my fast growing girl. Those pants are from 6 weeks ago. You heard me right, 6 weeks ago those pants were brand new and fit fine, even a little on the long side. Now they, along with almost all of MG's other pants are becoming too short. Seriously kid, stop growing so fast!
The horse head is from this pin. I used the freezer paper to make the stencil. 2 coats of fabric paint later and a little felt and ribbon, I ended up with a winner:
I'll leave you with a bit of horse show ribbon trivia for you...
First place in the US and Australia is a blue ribbon but in Canada and Britain it's a red ribbon which is traditionally 2nd place in the US and AUS.
eta: Uta over at little el is doing a Fabric Embellishment-Along if you're interested in participating. I'll be joining in as I have a stencil planned for a top for P.
