(I would be lying if I told you writing this post didn’t make me shed a few tears,
my baby girl has gotten so big!)
My friend Kim sent us our first little PrairieMama dresses
when Pixie was about 16 months old.
She upcycled all my old favorite t-shirts that had been languishing in my closet.
And OH the cute that emerged.
I have a thousand pictures in these little outfits.
Pixie wore them everywhere—and when we finally finished remodeling her little room,
they were the first thing she’d grab off the shelves we’d built so she could reach.
She called them her “Mommy Dresses”
when I told her they were made out of my old shirts <3
I loved everything about these easy little shifts.
We could pull them over long sleeved shirts in the winter,
run about barefoot in them in the summer,
and even as I watched them grow shorter and shorter
—-she was still begging to wear them.
So they morphed into tunics.
I think Kim puts magical fairy dust in her stitches.
Whatever the reason—PrairieMama creations are something very special.
They are part of the story of my daughters childhood
and that makes me so, so glad <3
Thank you Kim for sharing your heart and creativity with my family.
We love you.
Please come see Kim’s gorgeous little dresses, slings, and other cuteness
at the Blissdom Handmade Marketplace!!
I just know they will add magic to your little one’s closet too.
(and a few of her upcycled pieces are made out of several of my prettiest tees…yay!)
