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!

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...
