Happy Birthday, Annaliese!


Today my girl turned seven!!
I've already shared with you her birthday shirt -- she was involved with the whole process of picking the design and fabrics, so it was no surprise. What she didn't know is that I made a couple coordinating items. First, I made a matching hairbow. I used Button Cupcake Felt Stitchies design from GG Designs, but instead of stitching on a button, I ironed on a "7" cut out of the same material I used on her shirt.
I also made a cupcake shirt for her American Girl doll, using the same felt stitchies design. I debated for a while, but opted not to put a "7" on Anna's shirt -- I don't know how old Annaliese thinks she is since she just got her at Christmas. :) This is actually a newborn onesie (purchased for Dashiell but never worn) that I chopped off. Notice I didn't even take the time to hem it?!
Annaliese was thrilled with the little extras that she unwrapped today and enjoyed the whole outfit. Now I need to run put her clothes in dryer so they are clean for school tomorrow! :)
