Homemade goodies

As luck would have it, my procrastination won over.

I waited till the last full day to make my DS's birthday shirt.

See, I'm no good at sewing. So I bought a bunch of transfer characters at Michael's and thought I'd design part of his outfit for tomorrow's party.

This is about as far as I got. Only the elephant. The letters wouldn't tack on. It was supposed to say "Mattie is One."


Now, i got a defective set. At least I refuse to admit I did anything wrong :). There are blue fuzzy lint on the shirt. Do you see them?

Imperfect or not, I think I'll still use it. It'll bring some laughter when I look back at pictures.

This is the shirt that Mattie will wear when he attacks his birthday cake. The bakery called it a 'smoosh' cake. Too cute!

I can't wait!

And here is the opposite of disaster.


My custom bib necklace arrived from Second

I love me some polka dots and primary color goodness and those beautiful graphic buttons!

And my favorite parts are the charms -- the dancer, elephant, and tear drop!

I'm so excited for the circus tomorrow!

At least you tried making something! I tried making M's tutu, but ended up buying instead! *lol*
