Independence Day

You might be one of those people who are very organized.

You might have labeled tubs of seasonal decor sitting in your very organized basement, just waiting for the right holiday to come.

I am not one of those people. I would like to be, but I have a more artistic (scattered) approach to life.

July 3rd came. I said, "Shoot. I was going to plan ahead and make the kids clothes for the 4th!" Off to the fabric store I went. The flag/stars/stripes fabric was 40% off, but still too expensive for what it was going to be used for. I found red and blue gingham for $.96/yard. Score! Home I went with a yard of each. No patterns were used....don't look too closely. Like a lot of what I make, these are best viewed from afar. Ha.

Clara got a bubble top.

Oliver got a kimono top. He actually owns a lot of red, white, and blue clothing, but have you ever tried telling a two year old that Mommy will be making clothes for everyone but him?

Ruthie got the scraps and an old white sundress. It all worked out.

There was also a flag cake and fireworks. Oh, my. The kids were happy.
