"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Favourite fabric?

I wanted to make Gabby a dress for her 2nd Birthday which is next month. I came across this bright and beautiful fabric in an online fabric shop called Pink Chalk Fabrics and fell in love. It could be my most favourite fabric ever! If you look closely, you can see an owl and flowers and trees. How cute! The pattern is by Leila and Ben and was so easy to make. It was finished in just a few hours.

Fabric is 'It's a Hoot' by Momo for Moda
It looks gorgeous on her, but when I tried it on, she said, "Don't like it!" Oh well! It's a good thing 2 year olds in my house don't get to choose what they wear! Sorry chicken, your mumma loves it!

I made this next dress for Gabby to wear at Christmas. I wanted it to be Christmasy but still able to be worn after Christmas. My husband, Jeff didn't like the red and aqua colour combination at first, but I thought it was kind of cool. What do you think? The straps are adjustable so hopefully, she will get a lot of wear out of this one. 
The strawberry fabric was from Spotlight and the aqua spots are from the Michael Miller Ta-dot series


  1. Love it Bec! The Momo fabric is gorgeous and how easy is the Leila and Ben pattern?! And I love your little Christmas dress for Gabby; it looks beautiful on her.

  2. Hi Rachel! Thanks! Now it's your turn to show off your crafty stuff! Hannah and Nora's clothes looked great on Saturday. Thanks for having us. We all had a lovely time.
