William’s Fishy Party

 

My son turned 2 yesterday. He has a strange obsession with fishing. He’s never been real fishing. He’s never watched a show on fishing, as far as I know, but he can tell you all about it. Reels, hooks, casting, he knows it all. So we had a fishy party. Here’s the invite (posted first on my card site with it’s logo).

 

Then we’ve got the party outfits I whipped up. I just have two kids so I decided to make my daughter a fishy skirt too so she felt included in the fun. And of course my son’s shirt is appliqued. I’m an addict.

 

 

And then the party table. The party photos turned out terrible. 🙁 Bums meξcompletelyξout. I made a couple whales, a fishy banner, and some fun jelly fish. My SIL helped me with the fishing poles with sharks and my cousin Sarai made the cupcakes/cupcake stand. Thanks ladies!!

 

 

Last of all there are the gift bags for the guests. They have bubbles, goldfish crackers, and some fish shaped beanbags I made out of felt (another post on those to come). The girl’s bags have a fish hairclip as well. Happy birthday William!!

Felt Hats

This post is a guest post from my sister, Kira Dee. Enjoy!
I’m so stinking excited about this next project. A while ago I came across this hat tutorial from Fleece Fun! They looked so cute, so I pinned it and decided to make a couple of hats for friends and family as Christmas presents. I adore the way they turned out!! I did alter the pattern and made a cute spotted dog hat, which I love!!

If you have some time go and check out fleece fun! She has tons of free patterns and tutorials, it’s ridiculous!! 🙂
