Secret Project Revealed

If you've been reading for awhile, you may have remembered a few weeks ago I was working on a super secret project which I couldn't reveal since it involved my family and since they read my blog---well, I just didn't want to blow the surprise.

So a year or so ago TL and I had a lovely trip to Kona, Hawaii. In the course of browsing around the little shops in the little towns I came across this fabulous fabric store. When I walked in, I felt like I was transported back to 1945. It was crammed to the gills with beautiful Hawaiian prints and old fashioned cash registers. So I searched and picked up 5 yards of fabric, thinking I could fashion something for my grandbabies.....

Here's the result....

I made 3 little matching sundresses for the girls. So far it has been nigh near impossible to get them all three together for a group photo shot but we'll keep trying.

Note to self: Toddlers don't like to keep hats on for more than 15 seconds at a time for photo shoots....

Oh. My. Gosh! Those are so cute! I love the fabric and the style of the dresses and the hats and everything about them. I need to learn how to work that kind of magic on my sewing machine.

so cute. Can I buy the hat?
I love those colors and I am glad you went to Hawaii, what fun.

I never wanted to go as my dream vacation is.............jamica but, since everyone I know goes, I would like to see it once.

I heard you can't see it all in one trip though.
