It amazes me how quickly time goes by. My youngest DD will be 2 in just a couple weeks. I've had in mind a zoo party for a while but I have just gotten on the ball about getting things together. She loves elephants and so I had planned on centering the theme of the party around those ginormous creatures. I was browsing Target the other night when I found the cutest plates and napkins in the baby shower section, they have little elephants and giraffes with a blue/pink/green/yellow color scheme. Very cute. So then the rusty creative wheels in my brain started turning. She would need a dress to wear for her birthday. First I checked GAP where I found that once upon a time not so very long ago they had just what I needed. I found cute things on EBAY but wasn't willing to pay those high prices. So I headed to Hobby Lobby, bought material and made the perfect party dress!
I learned how to make pillowcase dresses last spring. I love how they look and are so simple to make! This was my first attempt at embroidery and sadly you can tell, but I am so very happy the dress.
So is DD!
