Another thing I wanted to share with you was this cute top I made for FREE! Nothing beats FREE!! The church ladies gave me this sweet (vintage?) fabric b/c they couldn't use it for quilting. They couldn't imagine it as anything other than curtains, but I could! I made two little strappy tops for the twins, thinking they would be super sweet with jean shorts. When I tried them on, they were huge! Oh, well. I guess they'll wear them as dresses this year and Sarah can borrow one for a top since it fits her the way I intended it to fit the twins.
It's a super simple design that I made up as I went along. The bodice is just a band that's lined, with loops in the back to feed the straps through. I left the skirt part unlined to give it a real summery look. The fabric has a nice texture to it and it's so girly and simple. (You can click this pic to see the detail if you want...)
One more thing, there's another great GIVEAWAY at The Maternal Lens! It's a fabulous piece of art by Tobin, my favorite artist!! I have a print of one her paintings - you can check it out here. Oh, how I'd love one of the ones we're giving away!!! Go enter. If you win, it would make an excellent gift for your favorite blogger friend! lol
