Halloween overalls with candy corn
My favorite outfit...I love it so much I don't want Mackey to spit up on it!
Football Dress..."Go Cardinals"
Stop me!!! I am out of control. Whitey, I have fulfilled our dream of me finally learning to sew. I sat down about 4 days ago determined to beat the machine. This Thursday a couple of girlfriends came over for ME to teach them to sew. It's amazing..a couple of days worth of sewing and I am up to my ears in dresses but most importantly ideas. I can barely keep up with myself. These are three of my latest attempts. I am addicted!!! I have been staying up way too late. The last red and white dress will have "Cardinals" embroidered on it for Mackey to wear to the football games. Stop me someone I am out of control.

Those are way too cute! I love the pink, black, and white one. You might need an Etsy shop!

Whitney,

I am so proud of all the sewing you are doing. All of the outfits are so cute. You are doing a great job. Somehow I never got into sewing with having all boys.

I can't even sew on a button, so you better either get really good at teaching how to sew or you better start selling your outfits at an affordable price :). Andrew will never let me buy retail again if he finds out Whitney is making her own kids' clothes at home.

You are making me laugh (as usual) because I can totally picture you a few days ago when you were frustrated...and then of course, you figured it out and you are a pro. I am wishing I lived close by because I'm going to need some cute dresses in a few months. You are one of the only friends I've ever had that picks up one hobby but then gets a new one just a few months later...just like me :o) I'm impressed with your sewing. And Paxton is so cute! I loved his school photo.

If you teach me to sew, I'll teach you how to walk to the mall without having to rest...we each have our own unique talents :)You always crack me up!

Whit- cute cute dress! Fun stuff. I hadn't checked blogs in a while and since checking yours I've gotten into sewing stuff for Ava as well. I too am addicted! I stayed up until 2am Saturday night to finish a little dress for her to wear on Sunday. My mom let me go at all of her old material and now I'm going crazy. I'm like you no patterns I like to come up with my own designs and then take a go at it.
