Death warmed over.  That is basically how I’ve felt that last few days.  Not fun.  I’ll tell you what is fun, though.  Charisma – by Chez Moi. It is beautiful! One of my customer‘s brought this line of fabric to my attention. I fell in love!

I knew I needed to make something out of it – but what, oh what should I make? Well, something for Haley of course. 😉
I used the Sew Baby Easy Pieces Jumper as the pattern. Haley requested that it not have buttons at the straps – and it fits over her head just fine with the straps sewn in place, so I figured I’d leave them off for her. She has to wear leggings under it – so if I wanted it to be a true dress, I’d want to add another row of the 5 inch blocks to the bottom.

The pattern was very easy to read and follow.  You use a part of a charm pack and a coordinating fabric for the center tier and straps.  This picture is not a close up, but you should be very proud of me – I even top stitched in a matching thread.  (Usually I’m too lazy to change it from white!) So there you go, another super fun project with Charm Packs! LOVE ‘EM!

    Adorable! I love jumpers and leggins for little girls. She is so lucky (and your boys too).

    Thats such a good idea for charm packs, I want to buy them but don’t quilt. My new give away is up for a beautiful cream peasant top, I’m sure Haley would love it!

    Oh, this is so darn cute! I also added you to my post that I purchased the charisma pink paisley from you. I don’t know why I didn’t do that when I first posted it. Thanks for advertising my giveaway…

    Cute outfit! I think the brown leggins would go with the smores jumper/dress too.
    Love to all.
