I had originally planned to make these outfits for my kids for Easter, but Easter came and went and the project was still in pieces on my dining room table. But, I was determined to finish them, I hate unfinished projects. So, just today, Ta Dah...here they are.
The dress is made from a "vintage" sheet and blue seersucker fabric I bought at Joann's several weeks ago (actually I think it was at least a month ago, because I couldn't imagine that I wouldn't be able to get these done with that much time. I was so proud of myself for actually planning ahead! ha.) Then, the little button down shirt for my boy is made from the same blue seersucker.
Today, I ran to the store to get the pearl snaps for the front of his shirt. I've never used snaps before - I guess I just never took the time to actually read the directions on the back of the package before. Well, let me tell you - these things are easy!! If you've never used them before, don't be scared. All you need is a hammer, the snaps and the little metal thingy you hit. Kind of fun, good for taking out your frustrations - unless you miss and hit your thumb instead.
Anyways, I learnt somethin' new today :)
Here's a funny - my daughter is always running out of socks to wear. It's not uncommon to have sock issues at 7:00am in the morning when she's supposed to be getting dressed for school. So I picked up a package of 7 the other day at Tar-get all Sunday through Saturday. Well, today being Monday, she wanted to wear "Monday" of course. Well, we couldn't find "Monday" so she settled for a non-descript pair unhappily.
So, I went to my purse today to find my camera to take these pictures, and low and behold...the "Monday" socks...all grungy and crumpled from a bounce house party this weekend. They were nestled next to the corn dog I bought my son for lunch on the way home - which he begged for, then refused to eat, and then conked out. Well, he's awake now, hollering for me....bet he's hungry for the corn dog now....
