On a slow boat to China...

One of my dearest college friends, welcomed her first baby this past weekend. A sweet baby girl they named Brynn. While I know that Brynn's mommy reads this blog, hopefully she will still be surprised when she receives this little gift that I made for her.

You see, sweet little Brynn and her mommy and daddy live in Hong Kong right now. This gift has a long way to travel before it gets to her. But I wanted to make sure I got a chance to share this with all of you since I am so excited to hear about sweet baby Brynn's arrival into this world.


I found this pattern from Shwin & Shwin and loved the piping detail on the dress. I've never done piping before, so I thought I would give it a shot.

And of course, what is a dress without matching shoes?
It took this spatially challenged girl several hours to figure this pattern out, but once I did, I love the end result.


You can get the pleated mary jane pattern and tutorial here . What do you think? Think I can pull some of these off in my size?

Congratulations Raellen and Kevin and welcome to the world baby Brynn!
