The end of the Challenge!!!

Kids Clothing Week Challenge is finally over (I realize it was over on Sunday for all of the other folks).  I am not sure I can actually say I did it or not.  Even with my 3 extended days I still skipped yesterday.  I just could NOT wrap my mind around sewing yesterday.  BUT I did end on a good note.  I made this little jumper for Em.  YES she is starting to get quite the wardrobe now. 
Clearly I am not done yet....I don't make my kid wear safety pinned clothes (usually).  I just cannot decide which buttons I like most-----green or brown???  Any suggestions???  I would actually like teal, but I only have ONE of those.....darn me for committing not to buy new stuff right now!!!!  SOOOO GREEN or BROWN???? 

The pattern is from the book ONE YARD WONDERS.  It was super easy and probably took less than an hour----or it would have if I had not been doing a million other things too.  Even with 2 year old potty breaks, making lunch, prego potty breaks, feeding the cat, folding laundry and watching a little Cat in The Hat....It still only took 3 hours----quick and easy.  Just like I like it!!!! By the way....see all of the patterns in that book that are on my to-do list????  Good stuff in there----now I just need a book with some extra time in it....where would I find such a thing?????

I love it! I think I would go with the green button - it stands out more.

I thought it was done - one green and one brown. I need to try this pattern! Thanks for the inspiration.

For the buttons, I would go with green if you want them to stand out, and brown if you want them to blend more. I personally like the green because I think the fabric is so fun, and the green is more of a fun color to me. Let us know which one you choose!

So cute! I really like the green button better than the brown. You are so good...maybe I should send some projects your way and they would actually get done!!!

Another vote for the green. It echoes the green dots in the jumper and looks like part of the pattern. Nice job!

I like the mis matched buttons. They are very much the fashion at the moment.
Cute dress too.

I love the green buttons. I just checked this book out from the library. Big mistake, because all it has do is add to the other projects I want to do! Library is a full of project books and ideas. I should stay away but it's a good way to find new ideas and books you might want to purchase.
