This is the latest thing I've made for a baby girl.

I really love it, but my favorite part is how we got the fabric. I don't know how many of you bring your husbands and sons to the fabric store, but I don't think its the most common thing. However, Aaron and Landon go with me fairly often. I really enjoy having them come. Aaron is really good about saying "yes, dear, that's great. yeah, I like that too." etc. Plus he can keep an eye on Landon. So, that is usually what he does.

Well, one time I took them to the fabric store and I'm looking at some fabric or whatever and Aaron wanders down the aisle a little ways, pulls out a bolt of fabric and goes "Hey, what about this one?" (and he's pretty excited about it). It made my heart sing. Even if the fabric had been totally ugly I would have bought some, but, no, my husband has very good taste in little girl fabric ;) and he knows me really well. The fabric was the most adorable green leaves with ladybugs print (seen in the photo above). I was so excited, but I tried not to act overly joyous about the fact that he picked it because that might cause him to never do it again.

I even had him pick between a couple patterns which dress I should make out of it. So, this is the dress Aaron picked for his little girl. So cute! He is going to make such a fantastic daddy to a little girl.


  1. Very cute! You BOTH have great taste!

  2. i LOVE taking travis to the fabric store with me!! it's so nice to have someone to decide things with. very cute project too!!

  3. so sad about Landon getting locked in the room!! Such a cute dress. You are so blessed to have such a sweet husband to pick out the fabric. It made me cry.
