And I'm glad to be able to share this little dress that I made for my niece, Hannah, who just turned THREE!
When I first decided to make Hannah a dress, I actually thought to myself, Well, Heather... I guess you're THAT aunt-- the weird one who only gives clothes, and handmade clothes at that. Sorry, kids, my sister-in-law will say, just smile and say 'thank you.' However, when I brought this dress upstairs, BOTH my girls jumped up and asked, "Is that for me!?!" So, YES! This gift is a winner.
It starts off like this: just a navy and white polka dot dress with a random tree appliqued on it and a pocket...
... but then, out of said pockets pops a little owl to take along!
He can either stay hidden safely away in his pocket or he can journey over to his hole in the tree to rest and look out on the world.
And he's attached to a ribbon, so he's a take-along toy that can't get lost.
Hannah wore her dress to church on Sunday and loved it. See! THIS aunt's not weird!
(Quiet, peanut gallery!)
