The Summer Picnic Dress pattern was so cute and EASY that I had to try it again. I had a leftover piece of "Stacked Slices" by Spring Creative© fabric that I had used to make my cousin a dress last year. There was just enough material for a picnic dress for my niece - AND for her "My Life" doll! She is thrilled that the two will match...maybe they will pose for a picture soon!

The last time my nephew spent the night, he squeezed into a favorite pair of knit "Ninja Turtle" pajamas and declared, "They fit just fine!" Well, they DIDN'T...and I decided he needed new summer pajamas. I had a piece of train print left over from pajama pants I made several years ago for the little boys...and it worked great as pajama boxers/shorts for the boys. I put pockets on tees to coordinate. The third pair is for a friend, and I know that he will have lots of shirts that will work as a mate!
