see Jane read. see Jane sleep. {back to school}

The sewing machines sure have been busy around here! Yesterday, Noonie took my first hand-embroidered piece {see HERE}, and turned it into this!Oh my, I am eating it up. It's no secret I love all things vintage + schoolhouse and this little dress top delivers up a sweet dose of school-girl charm. A little close-up...fake smile and all...what can I say, it was dinnertime! :)
I used one of Aunt Grace's feedsacks for the skirt. Love those sweet repro fabrics!
And then there's those cute coco jumbo mary janes that we've had since last summer. They finally fit! Yay! Of course you can't go to preschool without a cute napmat...Noonie made that happen too! I love all the little details she built in to the mat, like the reinforced velcro closures......and the carrying band.I'm pretty crazy about the little red japanese import fabric and I love that it's a canvas weight so it should hold up well. Here it is rolled out...doesn't it look so cozy & cute and ready for a little preschool siesta?We debated whether to attach the blanket or not...her old napmat had an attached fleece blanket. In the end, I decided against it. Her mat comes home every Friday to be washed and after a year's worth of weekly washings, the blanket in her old mat was looking rather raggedy.

Instead, I decided to put the little pumpkin's blanket collection to good use. Every week, she'll get to pick out a special blanket along with a cozy stuffed friend to take in her nap mat. This is one of her faves from when she was a wee little baby...
Cute & functional...what could be better?!THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU NOONIE!!Watch out we come!

Thank you all for the sweet, sweet comments! Indeed I feel blessed to have a sweet mom who goes along with all my crazy sewing projects. Love you Noonie!

Kris~ About me + sewing: not too good. I can do simple things like pillowcase dresses and aprons, but throw in ruffles and button holes and my palms break out in a sweat :( I think because I want it to be "perfect", you know? And the learning curve is steep for me on this one! One of these days...HA!

Jessica, you and your Mum are a fantastic duo of creative genius!

Jessica said...

Awww...thank you Teresa! I know I'm just a wee bit biased, but I think I really got beyond blessed with the wonderful mom God gave me!
