A Unicorn-Themed Birthday Party

This week I was honored to sew party favor bags for a sweet little girl’s first birthday! Her mom and dad were throwing a unicorn-themed party. I had the perfect fabric for them: Happy Little Unicorns by Robert Kaufman.

Happy Little Unicorns

It’s a pink fabric with three different unicorns. One is standing up with a bird on it’s back, the second is laying down, and the third is jumping over a rainbow. There are flowers, rainbows and stars filling in the background.

The unicorns were spread out on this pattern. I had to carefully cut the unicorns out so that each bag had a unicorn centered on the front. It took some extra time, but it was well worth the effort. The parents were thrilled with the bags. They are putting a small framed picture of their daughter inside to thank their guests for coming to celebrate their special day.

I wish that little girl a lifetime filled with happiness.

Celebrating The Unofficial Start of Summer

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. It’s time to put away those heavy coats and snow boots and bring out the flip flops and sunglasses!

To celebrate, I wanted to share this fun fabric with you. An owl summer cookout! It has a patriotic theme with its red, white and blue colors.┬áThe red charcoal grill is smoking. One owl is cooking, wearing an apron and holding a spatula. Another owl is wearing sunglasses and waving a pinwheel. A third owl is hanging out eating watermelon. The fabric is decorated with flip flops, stars, watermelon, hot dogs and popsicles. It’s a great summer party!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Thank a Teacher During Teacher Appreciation Week

It’s time to start preparing for Teacher Appreciation Week which begins on May 7, 2018.

There were many wonderful teachers in my life. They were always full of kind words and encouragement. There was the teacher that had a belief in my abilities when I had no confidence of my own. The teacher that pushed me harder and harder until I thought I would snap, but then one day I finally got it! The teachers that made learning fun. And especially the teacher that noticed me when others didn’t seem to care.

Teachers make a difference in their students’ lives in ways they don’t always realize. Don’t forget to thank a teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week.

ThankYou
