Dress Up Days by Doohikey Designs is an adorable new collection for little ones in super sweet and fresh color palettes for this Summer! These pretty prints brings to mind all the fun times had by playing dress up with friends or dressing up dolls, using creativity (along with some pretty fabrics) to transform your look! So let your little one's imagination soar by creating something special for her with these bright and pretty prints! How about making a sweet romper or a few simple sundresses from the florals or those gorgeous chevrons? Or make a new quilt to give her bed a pretty makeover?? Even beds need to dress up now and again!! And you absolutely HAVE to get one of the dress up doll panels!! Each one comes with directions and pre-printed designs for you to cut out and create a fabric dolly plus two outfits!! I love the idea of handmade toys for kids and these panels make it way too easy not to!!! And speaking of cool things you can do with the panel...

How adorable is The Lolly Dolly Pillow by The Cottage Mama??? This pretty pillow is the perfect addition to any little doll lover's room!! Make it any of the color schemes for a wonderful accent to her bed, favorite chair or to take with her on all those Summer road trips or plane rides!! You can get all the instructions and some great step-by-step photos here on the Riley Blake blog!!

And here's another perfect and FREE project for these pretty fabrics!! This sweet Bébé Dress Pincushion was inspired by the main pinafore in the collection and was created by the designer, Shari Butler!!! Here's what she had to say about her little creation!

I wanted to create something that can be fun to look at as you sew your projects, clothing, and quilts. I warn you now! You will want to make three or four of these, especially when your little girl sees them. They may disappear when you aren't looking!

So grab some of your favorite prints from Dress Up Days and start creating something sweet for your little lady!! And feel free to share any of your own creations with us in the comments! We'd love to see what you are making!

Happy Sewing!
