Ash and Katie have birthday parties to go to this weekend and wanted really cool gifts for their friends. So this afternoon I made these smaller tote bags for their friends and we will go to the dollar store and pick out a couple of things to go in them :)
I am liking this gathered fabric look on the bags. Watch out I have a feeling that there will be more where this came from :)
LOVED making this bag for a new Momma here in Enid! Her little girl was born a month early and she did not have a bag and wanted something special. My friend Heidi (I made a dress for her daughter) gave her my number and told her I could help.
One of the things I loved about this bag is that the fabric matches her crib bedding :)
(Please ignore the fuzz in the above pic. There is always one fuzz that I miss.)
I delivered this today and she totally LOVED it! She was filling it so she could go and show off her bag to her friends. She also called her hubby as I was leaving to order her a few patches for it :)
I saw this fabric at Hobby Lobby this weekend and had to have it! I loved the colors and knew exactly what it would be! I paired it with the lime green at the bottom and a t-shirt from Wally-World on the top and there you have it! A new dress for Monkey!
I had her try it on on Saturday night and she was so made that I would not let her sleep in it. She walked all around church pointing and telling everyone, "My dress. My pretty dress."
Ans of course every little girl needs accessories so we added a bow and the fabric flower.
Last week in the middle of my sewing frenzy I had to get out and the kids and I needed some sun, so off we went to the splash pad. It is the only one here and got a little crowded at the end but it was a ton of fun! WE packed a picnic lunch and splashed and played for about 3 hours! (I love the above picture because it looks like Natters only has one toe on the ground)
Some serious Monkey thought :)
I love the energy that Katie puts in everything that she does!
On the way home we went and got a snow cone and cooled off before heading home and then to a ball game. I think that it is a day that will be repeated often!
To start with, we did not bring one of these home, even though it really made Natters sad. So we went to a BBQ/baseball practice at one of the boys house on Austin's team. They live on a working farm and Natalie and the other girls got to play with a lot of baby animals.
Natalie's favorite of the babies were these Heeler/Lab mix puppies. The momma really was great and let her hold this little girl for a long time. She hugged and kissed and smiled at her puppy :)
Austin LOVED this little gray kitten! He still talks to me to try and get me to go and get her and bring her home.
This is Natalie all proud to finally have two puppies, and Jacklyn (she lives there, and plays with Natters at the baseball games).
Katie looks half dead here but this was her favorite, a new born chick hatched the night before :)
So much fun! And yes there was parctice but I was too busy trying to make sure that Natalie did not drop the puppy that I didn't get pictures of that.
