TMI...and a cute dress.

Yesterday, I went to the Social Security office. It's in a shady part of town. And I don't know if that's why they have you empty your pockets and walk through a metal detector or not. Honestly, the only other time I had to walk through a metal detector was at the airport. So, I wasn't expecting to have to worry about if I'd make the thing alarm or not. I wasn't wearing a belt, but I was wearing my mama pads. And my mama pads have snaps. So, when I went through the metal detector, it, of course, alarmed. A guard scanned me with his wand and every time he went to that "area", it beeped. This was in front of the other 200 waiting room peeps, plus the people in line behind me. Thankfully, they let me go through without having to explain myself. THAT was embarrassing! (if you don't know what mama pads are, here's a link)

Anyway, the Social Security office was quicker than I expected, so I had time to stop at my favorite craft store before going to fill out paper work for my new job (which was why I was at the SS office in the first place)(oy). I had a 50% off a single cut of fabric. Don't you love those coupons?

So, I bought the fabric and then I saw a post on Prudent Baby referring back to a popular free pattern. It's sized 12-18 months, but since I don't *really* follow a pattern anyway, I thought I could just use her pattern as a guide. So, that's what I did. And while it isn't exactly the right size (too big), I am mighty proud of myself. And I think it is quite adorable. Or, it could just be the kid ;) ---Seriously, could this kid be any cuter?






  1. Adorable dress and kiddo! I like making things big for the kids. They get more wear out of them. I love that fabric. Also love that you use mama cloth too! I made myself some, but I need more.
