There has been quite a bit of sewing going on in this house lately. Yep, when I decided to start letting go, it was the housework and laundry I let go of...at least for a short while. Creating is so much more fun than those things, wouldn't you agree?
One of K's classmates had a birthday recently and we were invited to her magical fairy party. Her Mama told me that her favorite colors were pink and blue so when I saw this fabric at the fabric store a couple of days later I just knew I had to make a skirt for her out of it. I used the Lazy Days skirt pattern from Oliver + S, which was the same pattern I used for K's hippie skirt.
Once the skirt was finished K and C were inspired to make gifts of their own, including a tissue paper angel and pipe cleaner creations. They collected some stones and things from nature to add to the gift, as well.
I especially love the card K created for her. The cover has a cake with six candles, a heart and their names...
and then the inside was a picture of them dancing around the May Faire pole.
She then decorated it with stickers while C ate some apples and watched. C wanted to wear a crown to pretend it was her birthday so she wore the one K made for Michaelmas last fall.
She was trying to hide from me and my camera which made K giggle hysterically.
Oh my silly little ham!
Speaking of birthdays, it seems that birthday season is upon us. A lot of K's friends seem to have summer birthdays. We have two parties to go to this weekend alone! Both are for boys which is new territory for me... any suggestions on presents we could make for them? I am thinking a skirt would be a no. Thanks for your help!
