Remember my little project I mentioned a few days ago? Well I am finally showing you ;). So my daughter is turning 9 this weekend and we are having a backyard BBQ then girls sleepover/campout for her. She told me she wanted a polk-a-dot theme this year, so I went to JoAnn fabrics for some inspiration...and found this. The pictures really don't do it justice because it has little silver glitter sparkles all over the fabric. It was perfect! So I bought a couple yards of it, along with about 6 yards of pink fabric that was on sale. All in all with the sales they had going on, I bought a lot of fabric for $22. Really, with a little time and effort, you can't beat re-useable decorations for that price....my daughters just might be seeing a lot of polk-a-dots for a while! ;)
So, I have an old sewing machine that was given to me by my Mom, but it is missing a piece and I need to take it in. So I was super upset that I couldn't finish my project....until I remembered that I bought my daughter a cheap-o Hello Kitty sewing machine last Christmas, and it had just been sitting there in her closet! So yes, it was a total pain, but I managed to sew the banner with a battery operated machine for little girls!
I've also made a couple tablecloths for her party, and am also working on a Bean Bag toss board.... I will be sure to post pics of those soon, and of course pictures from her slumber party!
