Since the kids were small, I've liked the surprise of a spring leaning treat on Valentine's Day, often making a little something for them. With Fred-o there were elastic pull-on shorts when he was small, which evolved to picking up a cute shirt or tee as he grew older. With Rosie Roo, there were DRESSES! Back then, MORE was MO BETTAH!!!
|As if the heart printed quilting cotton was not enough - there are ALSO heart shaped buttons, pink ribbons, pockets AND a sash!!!|
|This crazy little lady bug jumper was a real fav!|
|Rose buds figured largely in many items! I made her daddy a matching bow tie for this one!!!|
And though her current aesthetic has changed a bit, when I saw this bright knit at Textile Fabric Store in Nashville, I knew it would be a great Valentine top for Roo!!! I've used this versatile pattern many times ~ twice as a dress and here as a top! It goes together perfectly. Not too tight. Not too loose. With multiple neckline, length and sleeve options.
|A "teacher pose"!!! (According to Roo!)|
|Hmmmm..... Maybe I need to make a new pink stripey shirt for Fred-o!!!|
|Sweetness that made me laugh out loud! Does B know me or what????|
