Skipper Top & Clover Shorts // Sewing for girls

For the baby's first birthday party, I had the crazy notion that we ALL should have new handmade clothes to wear! Well except for my husband... I need to change the none at all lack of sewing for him.

I managed to complete 6 items of clothing for the party, with a 7th needing only a hem and a buttonhole. 

Today Miss Olivia is showing off her new clothes, of which she was quite proud!

I actually bought the fabric for both of these pieces over a year ago, thinking they would be perfect together and even with these patterns in mind! How often does that happen?? They are both from Hobby Lobby.

The shorts are my go-to pattern for her, the Clover Shorts (affiliate link) by Mouse House Creations, from the original Willow & Co collection. I even got to test them way back when. They are so good and my affection for them has certainly not changed!

ONE And WILD Birthday Party // Handmade Frenzy

My baby is ONE!!! 

I'm really not sure how to feel about my third and probably last baby turning a year old. I'm happy and sad. But mostly happy. I'm not terribly sad to see the sleepless nights fewer and farther between, and I'm LOVING watching his little personality blossom and those first words, and we still have the first steps to look forward to. This is a fantastic place to be. Both baby and toddler. My favorite.

For his birthday party, I went with a loosely "wild" theme. Throw a few teepees, arrows, a woodland animal together and we have ourselves a party!
(The adorable little fox hanging out in the background is made my lovely friend April. She made him as a baby gift when Aiden was born, he's still a favorite and much loved friend, April!)

If you would like to see where most of the inspiration came from, you can check out my Pinterest board.

Next came the cake smash! This was actually his second cake, he got to smash one on his actual birthday and I set up a little photo shoot (with my new lens!!) with that one.
