Hadley's Birthday Outfit

One of my friends little girls birthdays was this week and I thought I would make her a birthday outfit. I started by making a tutu like the one I made for Madison. Then I made the party hat using this tutorial. Then I took an old onesie that Madison never wore and appliqued a cupcake onto it. I gotta say this was a very fun project and I may have gotten carried away on it. Girls are so fun!!

Madisons Room

This was my summer project. My mom, mother in law, and I spent hours designing and putting this nursery together. My mother in law Gail  started the ball rolling by painting the entire room pink for us. She did an amazing job! She also helped me paint Madison's dresser that my grandma gave me white. 

After that my mom and I took a trip to Denver Fabrics and found the most adorable bird fabric and coordinating pink dot that we knew would be perfect!  We found the crib at Burlington coat factory, but spray painted it white because it was a yellowy cream that just didn't work with the room. For the bedding I sewed the crib skirt and the Minky blanket. My mom made the bolster pillow. The crib sheets and bumpers came from pottery barn kids. We then sewed the canopy and drapes to go over her crib. We added ready made roses we found at Hobby Lobby to give it a little something extra. 

For the tie backs. We found these birds at Hobby Lobby and spray painted them white and hot glued them to tiebacks. 

My mom made the valance by stapling some of the dot fabric onto a wood curtain rod. The finials came from land of nod. 

The dresser my grandma gave me also came with a mirror. It looked ok white but we both thought it needed a little something to spruce it up. So we covered fake flowers in plaster of Paris and hot glued it to the mirror. The lamps were from my childhood room but the shades had yellowed so I covered them in rose fabric. 

 We found the rocking chair off of craigslist and spray painted it white. My grandma gave me the nightstand that I also spray painted. I made the pillow that went on the chair.

I even changed out the light fixtures because it made the room even cuter. 

I absolutely love how everything turned out. As you can see Madison loves her room which makes it worth the effort.

Bronco Super Bowl Outfit

It isn't very often that your team makes it to the Super Bowl so I had to make Maddie an outfit. I'm so glad I had an excuse to finally make a fluffy tutu. I grabbed some of those 6 inch wide tulle spools from Hobby Lobby and cut each strip to 18 inches long and then tied them around some 1/2 inch elastic. It was super easy and fast. Add a homemade bow and you got yourself a cute Bronco fan.
