Christmas Outfits - A Sneak Peek

You have no idea how thrilled I am to be DONE with these outfits! I think they turned out great! I used the tutorial HERE for the skirts, with just a slight modification. (I didn't have time to hand stitch the waistband to the skirt.)

I also thought the ruffle at the bottom would be a little overwhelming on Penny's skirt, so I just left it off. I used the tutorial HERE for the shirts. This reverse applique was so easy to do! I'll definitely be doing this again in the future.

And for Petie's bow tie, I used the tutorial HERE. I actually make him two, one out of the green fabric, and one out of the red, because I didn't know which one I would like better. (I like the green.) This tutorial was so easy, I was able to make both bow ties in less than an hour!

Happy Birthday Penny!

So I know this is a little late, and honestly, I would have forgotten to do this all together if it hadn't been for my mother. So Mom, this is for you.

One year (and a few days) ago, our sweet little Penny graced us with her presence. Not in the normal way most babies do with the whole epidural and monitors or even hospital rooms for that matter. Nope, or little Penny decided to enter the world via our minivan in the parking lot of a nearby bank. (Get it, "Penny", real original huh?) Here's a collection of photo's from her first year.
