U-Pick Outfits and Your Way Wednesday

I had lots of fun with the outfits we wore for Elle's U-Pick party

My Doug wore (and got lots of compliments on) an "eat your broccoli" organic cotton T-shirt made by the Lady in Blue Shop.  For the rest of us, I couldn't resist the adorable Michael Miller fabric, gnoming around and picked up a yard from Pinked Fabrics on Etsy.  I made Liv's reversible kimono dress using a pattern I bought from Mani-Mina.  It was a fun project, the dress is so flexible, easy to wear, and able to be customized.  I'll definitely make more!

Elle wore a gardening apron just like the ones I made for all the kiddos (tutorial on that to come!) over a jean skirt, and I embellished a tank top to match.  I would give you a tutorial for the tank except that I totally just wung... or winged... or however you say I have no idea how I made it, it just kinda came together, but not as perfectly as I would've liked and I really dislike not having a method to my sewing madness... so there will be no tutorial... k?

I've been looking for an excuse to make myself the Deep Pockets apron from the A is for Apron book, and this was it!  I also wore a gnome scrabble tile necklace Pendentlicious made.  Gnomes up the cute factor by at least 50% on any project!

Can you believe I got all of that done with just a yard of adorable fabric?!
Time for Your Way Wednesday

Crafting is my way to relieve stress & stretch my creative muscles.
Sewing is my way to have some uninterrupted time to myself.
Bentos are my way to show Elle I'm thinking about her.
Parties are my way to love on my girls & our friends
Tutorials show my way of making this or that.

I want to see your way! I'm really excited to give you an opportunity to do just that with a link party!

Only two rules for you:
  • Add my lovely "Your Way Wednesday" button to your blog or blog post that you link up to
  • Please link directly to your blog post, not a giveaway, your link party, your Etsy shop, or even just the home page of your blog.
In exchange for following the rules, I'll leave a comment on your blog post & if you're my favorite post I'll feature you on my blog for my next Your Way Wednesday.

Link up you latest project every Wednesday on the Elle Belle Creative Your Way Wednesday link party!
