Pink Saturday

It is the season for flowery flowey (is that even a word?) dresses and little girls (and boys) running outside in meadows and long grass, making daisy chains and bouquets for mom (that get squished by chubby little hands before they make it to mom, and mom is THRILLED)

I have been working on some this week from Sandy Henderson's Portabello Pixie patterns with my recycled fabrics---though I did add a few splashes of new fabrics to get the combinations of patterns and colors just how I wanted them. 

This one has an apron for mom out of the peony print of the apron on the dress:
 They look adorable together, (but I think my photos are blurry?)  Can you all tell me if they are clear on your monitor or blurry, please.  Made me wish I had a little toddler  for that dress!  

Today is my daughter's Junior Prom!  Her dress will be a bit more like this!  (Not quite, but...hopefully some photos of her will be forthcoming as well!  Today was fun seeing her new haircut and doing her nails to start getting ready!!

Here is Bev's Pink Saturday link so you can visit the other Pink posts!   


  1. Kathi, I am dying to see Chloe's dress. Did you make it? I am still remembering the yellow frothy dress of a few years ago. I loved that one.
    I hope her prom will be lovely. I have not even started on India's senior ball gown yet.
    Happy Saturday!

  2. So beautiful littles dresses.

    In Shoes We Trust,
    "Do these shoes match this purse?"

  4. The dresses and apron are beautiful. What a wonderful idea, recycling the fabric and making it new again. I love it. What an inspiration.
    Happy Pink Saturday.

  5. Love your cheerful fabrics! I look forward to seeing pictures of the prom dress.
