What did arrive was a total of 6 grommets, when what I needed was 6 packages of 12!
And that just won't work.
Anyway, the company has been very nice and finally realized that a new employee made a bit of a mistake and the remaining grommets are now on their way.
But in the mean time I feel bad about the wait (even though it's not my fault) and thought maybe I'd send a little condolence gift along with the crib (that is if it ever gets finished!!).
When I saw this 'pirate' fabric I just couldn't resist. I can't think of a more appropriate print for a little one living aboard a boat.
And since her parents' sailed around the world without a bit of experience and succeeded? Why not!
The pattern is McCall's 5416.
Very simple and I made a size 1.
I used heart shaped buttons at the shoulders and red ric rac along the bottom.
The back view.

I'm a sucker for ric rac!
I also finally bought a 24" X 24" pillow form and covered it with some Steeler fleece for our Wilbur.
He loves it!!!
Look at that face!!! Is it any wonder he found a girlfriend during his first day at Doggy Day Care?
