A Birthday Celebration

My frist born turned 6 yesterday.  When you look to the future, six years feels like a long time, but looking back the time went so fast.  Luckily 6 year olds still like birthday shirts and crowns.  Or at least mine does.

A Birthday 6 Shirt was in order just in case someone was confused whose birthday was being celebrated.

A felt crown birthday was also necessary.  I was going to make a coordinating skirt, but then I remembered this reversible number I made a while back that still fit.  I'm moving slower that usual in the sewing department these days, so pulling an already made skirt out of the drawer was the perfect solution. 

I did spend a lot of energy making goody bags.  I still think it's a fun idea to send our guests home with a handmade treasure even if it ends up taking me way too long to make something that I think is simple.

Lastly, and probably my favorite idea for this party, was decorating with my felt heart garland.  I made a ton of extra garland this last Valentine's day, and when I was looking for something more to add to our Happy Birthday banner, I saw my heart garland and thought it would be the perfect solution.

That's a birthday wrap.  I've made progress on my Flea Market Fancy quilt, but it might have to wait until after school starts.  I have dreams of making some new school dresses.  Hopefully I'll get some sewing energy back soon.  However, I did just discover the TV show Lost.  Have you seen it??  I'm obsessed.  Netflix has all season with no commercials.  It's dangerous.
