I hope that you all had a lovely Memorial Day Weekend. Ours was very "eventful." Nothing how we planned it:o) Of course things never are;o) I had plans to do all sorts of crafty things on Saturday, but my hip went out, so I spent most of the day laid up in bed while the hubs "watched" the children...let's just say that chocolate milk was involved and I wish that we had had padded walls at the time;o) Anyway, before the ole hip decided to go berserk, I was able to make S.R. a precious little jelly roll dress. The fabric is pictured here in this post. Vintage was the name....and I LOVE IT! I wanted her to have a special dress for her cousin's graduation, so I decided to finally make a dress out of the jelly roll that has been sitting in my craft room ever so patiently awaiting the day it would become something Fan-Tab-U-Lous...
The back view...aren't those little curls the sweetest??? That's the only thing she got from me;o)
The blue blur in the photo was a toy being dropped. She likes to be on the move, so catching a shot where she is still is near impossible.
The matching head band. She really liked this too. I think she's catching on....accessorize, accessorize, accessorize;o).
Another shot of those curls....LURVE IT!
Have you used a jelly roll lately? I would love to hear and see what you have come up with:o)

Affin remains as the best house loan offer at BLR - 2.3%.
Standard Chartered offers BLR - 2.25%
Multi-tiers house loan offers are excluded because it would be impossible to simplify their pro and cons without knowing the actual details of your particular loan details. Hence, only simple and straight forward house loan offers are compared.
Since the fabric is so thin, I made pants instead of capris. I think the ruffles are so sweet.
To make the cherries, I ironed on some stabilizer to red fabric, used a circle stencil, cut them out, and appliqued them onto the fabric. I used itty bitty ric rac for the stems.
When we were in the store, S.R. loved the bow on the front of the other shirt, so I had to make sure I put it on this one:o) I really wanted cherry buttons, but Walmart didn't have any, and I was too lazy to drive around town looking for some, so I used green buttons that I already had. Here's a close up of the medium ric rac.
While shopping at a consignment store the other day, I ran across this hairbow and had to purchase it.
Can we say perfect???
Speaking of hairbows, check out these sweet little things...
Are those not the cutest things??? Thank you Sheila!!! Now I have to make froggy outfits for S.R. That doesn't hurt my feelings one bit;o)

So here is the super cape for the sweet little boy across the street. He LOVES Thomas, so I figured I would use Thomas fabric. I will have to say, I think this is the best super cape I have made thus far. Not to brag or anything;o)
Just your basic red fabric for the interior with a velcro enclosure. I think his mother was more impressed with the cape than he was;o) E was the same way. It took him a year before he would wear his:o) I got him to model Stephen's cape for you guys:o)
I can not WAIT to share with you S.R.'s new outfit I made for her in tomorrow's post. I. LOVE. IT!! And I found a matching hair bow on Saturday. EEK!

I want to say a special thank you to CSNStores.com for considering Fussy Monkey Business to host the gift card give away. We had good participation, and even got a few new followers out of it. Welcome new readers!!! So I used Random.org, and it generated #10, which is Carolsue! Congratulations!!! A CSNStores.com rep. will be contacting you soon!
I hope that you all had a great weekend. I surely did! I got to spend some time with my family. This is the first time in 6 months that we have all been within a 10 mile radius of one another:o) We got to take the kids to the zoo and to a baseball game. They had a FAB time!
This time of year is crazy wild when it comes to social gatherings. And those social gatherings usually involve bringing a gift. Graduations and birthdays hit us hard this time of year. So I have been working hard at getting gifts together. Today I am sharing with you another one of my drawings. Alabama fans...avert your precious little eyes;o) My friend Amy just graduated with her Masters Degree. WAY TO GO AMY!!!!! She is the kind of friend that everyone would die to have. I have never met a more strong, caring and giving woman. Amy is a HUGE University of Auburn fan...I know, try not to gag;o) Although I am not a true Alabama fan, the hubs is..hence the Bama themed office...he actually scoffed at the idea of me drawing a tiger:o)Anyway, I drew Amy a tiger.
I don't think it turned out as well as the elephant I drew for the hubs, but this one was a lot more difficult. I had fun drawing it, and she said she liked it....:o) Regardless, I'm very proud of her and her accomplishment!!
I will have the wallets posted tomorrow. I will be selling the extras for $20 each. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross for the flood victims of Nashville, Tennessee.
