Little Punkin...




Hurry! Go make one of these from the dishtowels in the Target Dollar Spot...such a festive, easy little dress.


(It's getting harder and harder to take pics of her these days...she won't stay still and is not quite the camera ham that her brother was and still is...is that because my second child hasn't seen as much as the camera?)

I've made all 3 of my nieces and my neighbor's little girl one....they took me like 10-15 minutes each to make...so easy! (Hope that Stella gets to wear hers before October is over :)

Question,,,I went to Target and got the last set of dishcloths (purple with a cat)..on the back, do you put the pumpkin or cat facing out or in?

Kirby said...

I didn't want the cat to be on the back right between the legs, so I just turned one of the towels upside down and cut towels both right at the top of the pumpkin.

For the little girls it didn't matter, b/c there dresses were so much shorter. But for the bigger girls, I used the second scrap piece (without the pumpkin on it) and cut it in half. Then, I used those pieces for the ribbon casing. I sewed right sides together, turned them over and followed the rest of the instructions.

Does that make sense?
