Feature Friday - beach robes

Before we get started let's announce a couple of winners.

The Cap Creations winner is Wendipooh13 who said:
these are sooo pretty!!! and I LOVE that skateboard one!!! how super cool!!!

We had to pick another random winner for the Jamberry Nails because the winner never contacted me.  Bummer for her.  Our new winner is Erica @ Acire Adventures who said:
Amazing! I want some :)

If you won, drop me an email and we'll get you hooked up.

Alright, on to today's Feature Friday.  So if you sew then I'm sure you're familiar with Dana's blog, Made.  She recently released a pattern for a child's beach robe.  Sweet, huh?

So I tried it out and sewed one for each of my boys.  I love them (well, the robes and the boys)!

They were easy to make, due to Dana's fantastic and very thorough instructions.

Okay, let me go off on a tangent here.  So Dana and my Zumba instructor have something in common.  What?  They both make me feel like I'm a lot cooler than I really am.  In Zumba the instructor looks amazing when she dances.  I feel like I look the same.....until I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror.  Yeah, not so much.  (This is my face when I see what my moves really look like.)

Dana puts out fabulous patterns and makes it all so do-able.  When I follow her instructions I feel like I'm a sewing genius....but I'm not even close.  She just makes me feel like I could sew custom wedding dresses.  Ha!  Anywho, the point is the girl has mad skills.

Otterpops, beach robes....summer is sweet.

Trivia: Does anyone know Rex's favorite color?

Answer: EVERYTHING has to be green in his world.

Okay, this post has been all over the place.  You'd think I'd been stuck in the house for 5 days or something :)  Thanks for all your well wishes.  I'm pretty sure we're all on the way up now.  I'm happy to report that yesterday everyone kept everything down.  Wa-hoo!

So, if you want to feel like a sewing rockstar you can get Dana's pattern HERE.

Thanks for reading.
