Valentine ruffle tunic top

I am sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, Craig is out in the field, Paige had three speech therapy appointments this past week, then ended up sick Thursday night. Reese had basketball practice's, game and team pictures. Claire is crawling and pulling up on furniture, so there really hasn't been the time or the energy to sneak off into my little sewing hole to finish up projects. Plus, I was waiting for my partner in crime, Katrina to get her butt back from NC to make a trip to Joanne's with me to buy some much needed supplies. One, the elastic to finish off these adorable little shirts. I came across this tutorial on how to make a simple ruffle sleeved tunic top and just had to do it. I have a pair of booties cut out for Claire and I plan to embellish a simple onesie to match the big girls shirts. Should be super cute. What do you think? Make sure you leave us comments.
I love the way Paige is looking at Reese in this picture, Reese just kept making faces and Paige was like, can we get this done so I can get back to my jelly beans.

They are so darn cute.

My older adorable little girls, the both love PINK... so I am sure these shirts will get worn out.

Thank you Candace over at Sparkle Power for a great Tutorial...


  1. Yeah thanks. Now I HAVE to make these in every single cute fabric I can find for Madelyn. So much for paying off bills during deployment. LOL
