So first off…thank you SO much for your sweet words on Tuesday’s post. I appreciate them so much!
And look-I sewed something! Ok it’s not ground breaking…just a little outfit for Sadie’s under the sea party this weekend! (she’s really excited about turning four can you tell!?)
I sewed up a quick elastic waisted skirt and added a ruffled tube of fabric along the bottom. Fabric is Dot in Aqua – from Bonnie & Camille. I got it awhile ago from Lily Bella Fabrics, looks like they don’t have it anymore though.
On the tee I appliqued a simple seashell, and then embroidered the lines on like so…it was quite relaxing, and the hubs and I caught up on some Olympics-I am loving beach volleyball! And gymnastics of course…I did gymnastics when I was younger for about 10 years so I have a special place in my heart for those girls.
We’ve been busy making other decorations and goodies for the party. Yes I said we! It’s so fun to have an eager little helper when I get crafty, especially since it’s for her party, she loves that!
She helped me make these paper bowl and ribbon jellyfish.
Ok so she mostly watched me make the chocolate seashells.
…and seahorse lollies! Sadie did request pink seahorses. They are strawberry flavored too! I finally tried these flavor oils I bought earlier in the year.
Also a quick Happy Birthday banner…I can’t wait for this party! Although it looks like it’s going to be another scorcher…sad face. Let’s hope it’s not 104 at least, like Miss C’s cowgirl party was. UGH. I’m planning on having a blow up pool for the kids to play in so at least we’ll have that to look forward to! I’m not above wading in myself, belly and all.
You can always see what I’m up to on Instagram! I am obsessed/addicted so I’m always on! My username is craftinessisnotoptional.
Also, Happy Anniversary to Rory and I today! It’s been 9 years…wow! Looking forward to a night out tomorrow with the hubs…gonna see the new Bourne movie-can’t wait!
