Super Cheapie AND Adorable Dress!!

Check out this super cute and super easy bandana dress I made for Miss Viv!!

Alright, I'll admit this has nothing to do with coupons. BUT, it was super cheap to make and looks adorable!

Here's the scoop - I came across an awesome blog with all these great crafts called Trey and Lucy. She has a tutorial for a 15 minute Bandana Dress that will fit a 2-3 year old lil girl. (Check it out here.) I was automatically hooked and had to try it out. I drove myself on over to Wal-Mart and got 2 bandanas and super cute ribbon for $3.50 all together.

However, I do have to admit it took me waaaay longer than 15 minutes to make this. I haven't used my sewing machine in at least 3 years and I totally forgot how to manage even the simplest functions on it. I actually had to get online and look up how to wind bobbin thread. I know, right? So in actuality, this super chic dress took me about 2-1/2 hours to make instead of 15 minutes. But boy next time I make one it'll only take 15 minutes!

Let me know what you think of this totally cute dress! I'll post a pic of Viv in it as soon as she wakes up. I didn't have the heart to drag her out of bed just to try her new dress on her. haha
