School has been out for a few weeks for us and I had a real itch to sew an outfit for my grand-niece who lives in Utah. (I know...you're thinking I'm not old enough to be a Great Aunt, right? Heck, I was a Regular Aunt when I turned 6!) This niece is on my husband's side and is just the cutest little toddler ever! Her mama posted on facebook about how much Ella loves giraffes, so that had me inspired. Nothing like a little bit of *ooooh!* to get me going!
I haven't sewn garments for quite a while. The last piece I made was about 2 years ago for a friend who had a part-time job working as a clown. It was quite the project, but I battled it and was happy with the outcome.
