It doesn't take much to get me motivated to sew. I can find inspiration almost anywhere. This time it hit me while I was reading my daily blog roll. I have a dear blogging friend in Michigan that shares my vintage love, Great Lake living, and all things tin doll house. Musings from Kim K. always makes me smile and so on Tuesday when I spied the sweet Miss Josie sporting her new Halloween costume I knew I needed to sew her up a kitchen costume of sorts...
My Miss Claire is sporting this for show. It really should be criminal to have this much fun. Vintage blue dots from a recent sale mixed with new white dots on red. Honey on the bun fabric is the yellow bee for the W of course.
Now I know Wonder Woman didn't have lace on but I couldn't resist.
I knotted the neck tie and stitched around the W just like the costume.
The bottom portion is a vintage child's apron from a sale that needed a revamp. Pocket is adorned with stars stitched the same as the W.
Just as I was getting ready to fill a box to send off to Kim and her girls this came in the mail...
Brilliant Halloween goodness. No words just pure pleasure.
Kim's talent with paper is immeasurable. She is always adding just the right touch to almost everything she brings home.
She is just as kind as they come and very generous. This peat pot is darling.
A few vintage patterns that make me swoon. An apron to add to my growing collection.
I realized that there was a missing piece and then I had to go and find it...in Claire's room. A spool cat and kitten with a tiny pumpkin in tow.
Getting to know like minded people through blogging has been such a pleasure. Thank you Miss Kim for such a wonderful box of Halloween goodies and more. I can't wait to finish up your box and ship it off to you.
