Custom work – Sharks Baby dress & stuffie

A friend of mine is having a new little niece soon and she asked me to make her a dress from San Jose Sharks fabric (the daddy’s favorite team).

I used Made by Rae’s Geranium Dress pattern, because its my favorite pattern for baby dresses!  It turned out really cute!

I just bought myself a KAM snap plier set, so I used the KAM snaps on this dress.  I had trouble with the middle snap and had to take it out a few (ok a lot) of times!  I finally got it – and the snaps are so nice.  Much faster than buttons (when I know what I am doing) and they are easy to open and close, great for baby clothes!

I am a firm believer that baby dresses need to come with a cute diaper cover – so I made a diaper cover with some shark ruffles on the bum!

As I was working on the dress, It was killing me to think that this cute little dress was going to be given without a toy, so I drew up a quick Shark toy pattern and whipped it up.  I even added cellophane in with the stuffing to give it that great crinkly sound.  I think it’s an awesome shark!

She even has lashes and a toothy smile!

It turned out to be a very cute little custom set!

I am sure her Daddy will be proud to show her off in her Sharks dress!
