DIY Pillow Case Dress

By

1. Measure your child from the nape of their neck to mid thigh.

2. Pick out coordinating fabrics (I chose 5 because I like the “busy” look). When cutting fabrics leave it folded. In the picture of the fabrics notice the fold is on the left and the length noted below is measured from the top to bottom of fabric the way it is oriented in the picture.
*Main fabric (school print) measured the length of neck to thigh. {Stella is wears 12-18 month and I measured hers 14″.}
*Accent #1 (cheetah) measured 3″.
*Accent #2 (with with big red polka dots) measured the length of Main Fabric + Accent #1 {for Stella’s 14”+3”= 17″ of Accent #2)
*Accent #3 (black with ABCs and 123s) measured 10″ and folded in half, making a 5” trim at the bottom. I do this so that I don’t have    to do a hem at the bottom.
*Accent #4 (white with black polka dots) measured about 4″.

3. Lay Main Fabric unfolded on the floor or working surface, and place Accent #1 on top of it (at the bottom edge of the fabric) right sides together.

Hot Mamas in the Kitchen!

By

There is nothing like a good apron when you’re working in the kitchen and we have recently come across these adorable and functional aprons from Jen Rosie Designs! Not only do they come in perfect Crockin’ Girls colors, we actually use them! The skirt is made out of absorbent terry cloth to wipe our wet and messy hands while we’re prepping out latest slow cooker recipe. Of course we like to stay connected (we did start our Facebook page from our phones ha!), so we can just keep our phone in the cute ruffle pocket or that toy our kiddos are fighting over! What we love most is that these awesome aprons are made by a fellow “momtrepenuer”, Jennifer Carr, who lives right here in our home state of Texas and is part of our Crockin’ Girls Community!
