Lately Ruby has been asking to "sleep in the sling" the woven wrap I carried her in as a baby! The magic of the wrap is that it is so adjustable, I can carry a newborn or a busy, wiggling toddler. Ruby has actually taken two snuggly naps recently while I wore her in the sling. What a great way to show her that she is still my baby, and that even though it's Clay that is usually carried in my slings, we're still just as connected as ever!
Using this great tutorial, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=170402.0 , I used one of Bob's old button down shirts to sew a new dress for Ruby to wear for Thanksgiving. It is still missing the bottom trim, but is otheriwse wearable. I may finish it with some pretty lace detail. It was super easy and would have only taken about 45 minutes if I hadn't been constantly interrupted by a nursing baby and busy toddler!! I can't wait to look through all the local consignment shops for more men's shirts to try this with!! I have plenty of little girls in my life that like to dress up!!
