We are getting ready to do some celebrating around here (it’s the big five birthday week…more on that later this week) and now that I’m finally caught up on most of my orders I can start sewing my long list of stuff for the kids and family!
First off was finishing up the chick’s Christmas dress. This is the same peasant dress pattern that I’ve been sewing a lot lately. It’s super easy and makes such a cute dress! I’ve not a clue who the fabric is by, but I love it and I hand appliqued the little owl on there the same as this dress.
We are also having fun at school this week with holiday parties. I saw this idea on Pinterest a while back and I knew it would be a hit in the Rooster’s crazy second grade class. The original idea is to use tic-tacs, but tic-tacs are not cheap at all and when you have to buy 20 of them we decided to look around for other options. We thought about doing green mint gum and calling them “grinch sticks” instead. After wandering the aisles of Target with a calculator, the Rooster spied these and I think they were a great find!
I printed out the little .jpg image onto full sheet label paper, cut them out and voila! A funny little treat for their holiday treat bags! Below is the .jpg image that I used and here is the link to the original blog post.
