Introducting the Amelia Shirt Pattern

Introducing my newest pattern - the Amelia Shirt Pattern for Teens, Tweens, and Adults! Sizes XXS - XL and it's super simple. You can make a mommy and me look by using the Caroline Dress Pattern for girls, too. You can buy the pattern on my website - Frog Legs and Ponytails - or on my Etsy Site! Cool summer style looks cute with shorts and sassy with jeans. Thanks for the great response already!

Estoy aprendiendo hablar español.

(That means - I am learning to speak Spanish.) I took an amazing trip in February with my sister to the Dominican Republic. This was the scenery on one of our excursions! I promise - this is not the stock photo that came with my computer. I took it with my cell phone nonetheless! Anyway, when we arrived at our hotel we were given the most delicious slushy drink. I tried to order it several other times (a day) during our trip, but always ended up with some inferior version of the original yummy rum drink. I vowed then to learn Spanish before the Punta Cana Girls Trip 2010! If not just to get the yummy rum drink, but to avoid some of the embarrassing events that occurred due to my naivety and lack of understanding of the Spanish language. (One incident - much to my sisters amusement - involved my handing over the room key card instead of the towel "ticket" to the handsome pool boy. The key and the ticket looked the same from where I was standing in line. All I wanted was a towel - promise!)

I got a new iPhone the other day and stumbled upon Coffee Break Spanish. You can download and listen to mini Spanish lessons on your iPhone while the kids are in swimming class! Jeez...what will they think of next! . So, I am sewing two Kyla dresses for a friend right now and just touched up on Lesson 4 Spanish. I love to multi-task!

Little Butter Beans

I saw this adorable little blue-eyed sweetie in my Flickr Group the other day and had to share these pictures with you. The designer and photographer is Coleen from Little Butter Beans - isn't she talented?! She has done the Caroline Dress Pattern justice! Great job Coleen!
