Audrey's New Jumper

I was just looking back through previous posts and realized I haven't put a sewing project up in well over a month. Geez, no wonder I felt rusty while I was sewing Audrey's new jumper.

I had forgotten how much I enjoy sewing little dresses like this. It is such a fun project and goes fairly quickly, even despite the fact that I made more mistakes than I can count and actually thought I broke my machine at one point.

Those little hearts on the sides are pockets, so she has a place to tuck all of the treasures she finds.

She tested the jumper out at the park yesterday afternoon and it passed with flying colors, although at this point there isn't much that would slow this little girl down. She is definitely a toddler now.  

And for those of you who have kiddos or have worked with them you know that cooperation isn't always the name of the game. This is where Audrey wanted to play for the first ten minutes we were at the playground. I had to coax her out with crackers in order to get a few pictures that actually showed the dress.
