I made my girlie girl a little outfit for her birthday month. I made a semi-matching one for one of my dear friend's daughters, who has her first birthday this September. Together, they are the cutest duo of girlies ever ;)
After seeing these little rhinestone iron-on's on sale, I knew I had to pick them up. I thought long and hard about what I'd put on the shirt - maybe some fabric painted necklaces, or another stencil. Maybe nothing. And then I thought, hmmm, every little Ms. America has a sash, right? So let's make one out of ribbon, and coordinate that ribbon with the outfit!
So I sewed on three rows of the ribbon in a sash-like way across the front of the shirt, and the embellished the skirt and the jeans with the matching ribbon. I also made a hairbow for my friend's daughter's outfit, but not for my daughter. Because, before I could, my friend saw a hat of my daughters on our table and said, hey, that hat matches her shirt perfectly!! It actually did, right down to the ribbon (I didn't make it, I bought it actually at a resale shop last year!)
So ta-da, here are the sparkly reigning queen shirts!!
