Sewing Lessons and Fun Times!

Mallory is going to a Birthday Party today and wanted to buy a small gift and then make a gift for her friend. So she decided on some cute pink flannel fabric with Princess Kitty Cats on it and made a pillow for her friend and a smaller one for her friends dolls.
I took a picture of the end result,
it isn't on my camera and I've already wrapped the present.

Then Ezie had to make something to,
Ezie is in pink silk pajama's,
what can I say,
the boy LOVES pink?!?!

Here's Ezie's big fleece pillow that he made.

Then I made some little pom-poms ponytail holders for Mallory and her friend since the party is in the High School Musical theme. I didn't have any red fleece to put in the pom-poms to match the school colors, so white will have to do. (These pom-poms look really cute in the girls hair and the make really nice little cheerleading pom-poms for dolls too.)
and then I made a High School Musical tote bag for Mallory and her friend.
We all had fun sewing and everything turned out pretty darn good!
Daddy is currently lost while taking Mallory to the party
A very happy camper!

I love the pictures of them sewing, how cute is that! And from your post below I also like Alexi Grace on American Idol, I never miss that show. My Daughter had 5 American Girls that she has outgrown now (she is 13). That was usually a big present from her Grandma or Santa : ) They are beautiful dolls. I hope you have a good weekend.

The High Schhol Musical tote bag is great and the pom poms are adorable. I am glad to see your kids enjoy to sew.
Enjoy your weekend.

The pom poms are adorable! I once took my daughter & her friend to the wrong bowling alley for a party - we showed up at the right one (after having my sister go through my e-mail) 40 minutes late! Hope he got Mallory there in time for cake! Beth

I love when the kids sew and especially when they give homemade gifts to friends. The hat for Mallory and Addie are adorable. Cathy

What a wonderful gift to share your talents and pass them on to your family. I'm sure they will always treasure this time with you.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
