Memorial Day Thanks!

Hope everyone out there is having a great long weekend :) Don't forget to thank a veteran for the freedom we all enjoy!  
I have such respect for all members of the military AND their families! I have to imagine it isn't an easy life, but I truly appreciate them!! 

THANK YOU! to all the soldiers who are here with us and those that were taken too early!!

Sewing for friends

Last weekend was my friends little girls birthday. Her mama (my friend since middle school... Yeah a LONG time!) had mentioned she wanted a bow tie & tutu party... Totally cute! I offered my services for the bow ties (I'm kinda used to boy stuff now, despite the fact that girl stuff is SO fun!) 
I set off to make the 10 right away only because deadlines are stressful with a little one. I never really know how much time I will get in a given day. 
I loved the fabric my friend chose (little grey chevron by Riley Blake). I love the way the bow ties turned out. 

I added some homemade suspenders to his outfit because... Well, I try to have fun where I can with little boy fashion.
