Froggie went a-courtin’, and he did ride, mm-hmm

Froggie went a-courtin' in a brand new suit, mm-hmm!

I was amazed and thrilled to finish this outfit in 2 days. I literally spent more time re-doing the machine embroidery on the collars than I did completing the whole outfit. I first saw this froggy fabric on Michie's blog. I searched everywhere to buy some and after I did, I found more on sale, so I have about 6 yards of it. This fabric just tickled my fancy. Appropriately, I used a Creations by Michie pattern, #110 Diaper Shirt and Shorts, size 24 months. I thought the shirt looked a little short, until I put the shorts under it, and now it looks just right. 

I digitized the frog and dragonfly myself by tracing the shape on the fabric. I decided to do the embroidery on a little pocket. Originally, I thought I would put it at the bottom left, but when I put it in the top center, I really liked it. I wanted to make a fun summer outfit and I think I did!
I'll get pictures of it on Andy soon, but he's getting spoiled by visiting my parents today.
