Summer Top for Miss Boo


It doesn't happen often, but every once in a while I'm hit with the strong urge to sew.  Most of the time sewing isn't feasible for me, as it's difficult to imagine a sewing machine fitting into my very hectic schedule.  (Knitting can be stuffed into a purse.  A sewing machine, not so much.)

However, I did manage to sew a few cute summer tops for Miss Boo before we went on vacation.

(This picture is of the back of the shirt)
I messed this one up and did the straps on the wrong side, but thankfully the straps are long enough that I can wrap them over her shoulders and tie them behind her neck, so it still works and doesn't look weird. 

I don't know if my tastes are changing or if it's just the advent of summer messing with my internal color scheme, but I find I'm suddenly drawn to psychedelic colors.

If I start liking peace symbols and hearts, then all is lost.

So cute! I'm sure she loves it right? Hopefully you'll be safe from the hearts and peace signs, ha ha!
