Sundress and Corker Bow (I *heart* SUMMER)

So last night my sweet husband was super tired and went to bed as soon as we had the kids in bed, but I was not tired yet. I mulled for awhile over what I should do (aka, played FARKLE on Facebook - darn addictive game), and then I thought I would work on this dress I told E that I would make for her.

I started working on it last night and finished it this morning. The directions are from a Martha Stewart show I had DVR'd and watched about a week ago. LINK HERE! The dress was so simple and though it is not PERFECT because it was my first one, it looks well done.
Then I remembered these cute curly bows I had seen. I have one for E from Gymboree for the 4th o July. Anyway, I decided to try and make one. I looked on line and found out they are called Korker bows and also found these directions. Anyway, just thought I would share!

What projects have you been up to so far this summer??? Hope you're having fun! I need to get crackin' on some stuff I wanted to make before July 4th, and I have a birthday party coming up in the next couple weeks that I need to figure out some activites for. Happy SUMMER! (Okay, well it is HOT here, so it counts as summer for us).

This is darling. I love the hair bow. Wish I'd known how to make these when DD was little.
