A new Highchair cushion and a Daisy Pickin' Outfit

I've been meaning to make a cushion for Edie's high chair since she was born, and she is now 7 months old. I just finished it, but really she is just now able to use it anyway so I don't think she minds! It was very easy and turned out pretty cute. And if you can't tell by now I obviously like the aqua and yellow color combination! 

New Cushion for Edie's Highchair

I think she likes it!

Making clothes for the spring and summer is one of my major To-Dos right now. If  I don't start early then it seems that spring and summer will be here before I can get anything done. We love to play outside and it has been in the 70s this week! (WooHoo!). It is so nice to see the sun and I can just picture my Sweet E sitting in the grass picking flowers in this outfit.

Daisy Pickin' Outfit
 The clever thing about this outfit is that the top is made from an old button down shirt! All the men in our family give us their old shirts that they don't want anymore, and I refashion them into outfits for the girls. It is a win-win, I think. I don't spend alot of money on fabric, and they can give me their old stuff instead of making a trip to the Goodwill!

Also, to get that cool pleat, I just turned the back part of the shirt inside out and made it the front. I don't know if that makes any sense, but it makes it look like I got all fancy and pleated the front of the dress when I really didn't!

Happy Friday ~ Do something fun outside!

  1. Where did you get her high chair? I love it! Have you had any trouble with her pushing off the table and tipping backward? The cushion looks Great with it! A lot of the wooden high chairs are very traditional or super contemporary, this one is perfect.
