I swore I wasn’t gonna…


but I did.

It’s a sickness.

Sunday morning found me and my fabric stash spending some quality time together so that my kids would look festive at church.

Bowtie pattern is this one, as usual.

Skirt pattern I made up on the spot.  Basic tutorial to come?

  2. Madigan at madiganmade says:

    I'm new to following your blog… but I am so in awe at how you can just put something together. It takes me forever to finish a sewing project.
    These are adorable!

  3. Your kids might need therapy in the end, but dang I bet they looked cute!!!

  4. Life in Rehab says:

    You and I suffer from the same disease, Mykidsmustmakepeoplesquealitis. I get it. It's okay. Your children are entirely too adorable as is, but you feel the need to embellish. Which is why we all keep coming back.

    This. Was. CUTE.

  5. Darn you…. I've got 3 boys (& 1 little girl, too!) How could I NOT go run & buy that tie pattern now that you've put the bug in me!!?? LOL Adorable!

    It's not just you! I made a tie for my little guy AND a flower broach for me out of the same fabric. I love that you at least had different fabrics. Super cute!

  9. LaVonne says:

    Very cute skirt. I'd even wear it on the 4th. :)

    You win the cake for these. Too bad I can't bake you one. Well, I could but then I'd want a slice and you can't send a cake with a slice missing, can you? You really are soooo creative.

  11. You made all those up in a morning? That's impressive!

  12. Real Life Reslers says:

    They look adorable!

  14. When I asked Macy "Did your Mom make that?" she replied, "Yeah. This morning." I can't believe you! You are super talented and a little mad. All great mind's are though.

  15. You rock! You put the rest of us to shame. Love the ties and the skirt!

  16. Amanda K @ Every Crafty Endeavor says:

    Is your church at 9:00??!! We can't even make it out the door on time for 11:00 – let alone make anything this super cute that morning! I bet your kids looked just darling all matchy-matchy! I love it!

  17. Char @ Crap I've Made says:

    Nah…church is at 1:00, so I had PLENTY of time.

    (OK, not plenty. I didn't actually get my legs shaved, but my skirt was long.)

  18. amy smart says:

    These are so dang cute!! What are shaved legs compared to festive 4th of July attire? :)
