Weekend Project... REVEALED and GIVEAWAY!

Remember my weekend project...

Project is all finished, tutorial has been written, and the Recipe has been posted!

The tutorial features the fabric collection Aviary by 3 Sisters for Moda. I designed a pair of toddler suspenders out of Jelly Roll strips and then made a dress using Bananafana's newest pattern, Lollipop. I love the way they turned out... kind of reminds me of an early 1900s style... with a modern twist. Thank you, Jess for designing such an adorable pattern for me to feature on our Moda Bake Shop!

With all this Easter inspiration, I think this calls for a Giveaway! Leave me a comment with a little bit about yourself and something fun that you do now or did growing up for Easter and you could win Bananafana's newest pattern, Lollipop! Here is an example...

My name is Angela, I live in Texas. I am married to a wonderful man and have two beautiful children, a boy and a girl. Growing up we would leave our empty Easter baskets and a carrot out for the Easter bunny the night before Easter morning. In the morning we would have to find where the Easter bunny hid our filled baskets and see if the Easter bunny ate his carrot. Our Easter bunny always made a mess when he ate his carrot and left lots of evidence. :)

UPDATE... Contest ends Monday, April 6, 2009! You still have a little more time, so get your comments in! I have included an extra little surprise with the giveaway!

Well.... I have jumped on that wagon...
and started a Twitter account...
I was finally able to upgrade my phone to an iPhone today and had decided once I join the iPhone craze, I will too, join Twitter. I was waiting on the iPhone so I could easily twitter from my new phone. It is actually kind of fun and really easy! I am a gadget kind of girl and have been waiting very impatiently. I must say... it was definitely worth the wait!
So check out my side bar and see what I will be twitter-ing!

My first swap arrived!

Things have been crazy busy around here that I forgot to post my package that I received from my wonderful swap partner Sandy from the "Wishing it was Spring" fat quarter swap! I was so surprised to receive more than just the fat quarters! Included in the package were some yummy almond kisses (which did not last very long...mmmm) and an adorable little scrabble square pendant. I also love the tiny pink ric-rac that was tied around my new fabric.
Thank you Sandy... It is perfect! Now... something special to make with it.... any suggestions?

Weekend project...

The Inspiration... This fabric is stock #54038-14 by Moda Home called Storytime in Robin's Egg Blue.

The Pattern (s)...

I call it my Bananafana-ized Pink Fig Dress. ;) I used The Cuppy Cake Dress pattern by Pink Fig for the overall base of the dress. Then added some of the design elements from the Once Upon a Time skirt by Bananafana.

The Pink Fig pattern has shirring for the back of the dress and I am not a big fan of shirring. Don't get me wrong... I think it is cute, but I don't care to do it myself. SOOO... I skipped that part of the pattern and made a more tailored back and Bananafana-ized it by adding a big bow that wraps across the front of the dress.

A little yoyo hair clip to match...

Paige now has a cute new dress... I think she likes it... what do you think?
