Fall is coming

Now that the parties are over it's time to start fall clothes. Sophie is growing up and likes more grown up stuff. I just made her a soft knit dress by Modkid. It is the Abigail A-line gored dress. I used the Michael Miller knits by Patty Young. The dress if fun and Funky. Really easy to care for and is comfortable to wear. Very fast and easy to make. I think I will have to make legging to wear on those cold days to come.

Sophie's Party

It's Party Time Again.

This time it's Sophie's party. She is 7 and wanted a cooking party. She likes a lots pf colors. I made aprons and chef hats for each girl with their name on them.

While we waited for all the girls to arrive they made a banner to hang up. It was called Sophie's Cafe. Actually they made 2 as there was so many girls.

The girls all made a pizza for their lunch.

The girls than decorated cupcakes to take home. They had begs of icing with differant colors and tips for decorating. There was also a lot of differant toppings. Everyone had a great time doing 2 cupcakes. They did the cupcakes while the pizzas baked.

The table was set with polka dot glasses to matcg each apron. Bright colored candy was sprinked on the table. Each girl also had a matching napkin.

I made a banner out of the same fabric as the aprons.

Each girl also took home a picture frame with a picture of the group at the party. The frames were painted to coordinate with their apron.

My daughter Tracy made the Topsy Turvy cake. It was in all Sophie's favorite colors.

The 2 sisters enjoyed the party along with their friends.

Everything turned out perfect. The party was so much fun.

Lucy's Ballet Party

Our Lucy recently turned 5. She wanted a Ballet Party.

My daughter Tracy and I had a great time putting it together. Just seeling the smiles on the girls faces was worth all the work.

I made tutus for each of the girls. Here is Sophie seeing how many she can get on at one time.

Tracy made ballarina barretes for the girls. They were super cute.

Each girl had a party hat with a pom pom on top.

I painted pink and green polka dots on the glasses. They looked really cute with their little bows.

We made a birthday banneer with Lucy's name on it.

The girls all took home a group photo in pink or green frames.

There was two girls there to teach a ballet dance. The girls all had a wonderful time. Here are the rest of the pictures from the wobderful fun party.

Skirting the issue

I made Sophie a new skort for school. She want's a older look as she will be 7 tomorrow. I used hot pink twill with tone on tone flower. Sophie doesn't want a lot of detail on her skirt right now. I used the same fabric for the flower and appliqued it with the raw edge. I used a light green for the leaves to add just a hint of color. She was happy with it and wore it to school today. It was very fast and simple.
