Three New Dresses...and what the heck is that?!

So I made three pillow case dresses for LO - I'm thinking I need to fix the polka dot one with some thicker ribbon - but I'm pleased with how they came out:

Flower print that reminds me of my Nana B.:

And my last project isn't quite finished yet - it still needs a strap...So I did this as a challenge to my class - we've been talking a lot about recycling, reusing, reducing and during their Valentines' Day celebration, they were drinking out of Capri Sun juice boxes and I asked them to save them for me. So I took them home, cut the bottoms out, washed them and dried them (hubby thought I was nuts until he saw the result...lol!) - so the other day, LO and I taped them together with duct tape and clear packing tape. She kept laughing saying, "Mommy tape the juice up!" I'm hoping that after vacation is over I can show them that they can reuse things to make other things. Also I hope to show them that they could also use a reusable container, rather than use ready made juice boxes - which in turn will help the environment...I might have to raffle this bag off or something... ;)
