My little girl turned 2 last month! We happened to be in Warrens, WI at Jellystone and decided to do her birthday then. With every birthday of hers, I reflect back on my son’s birthday at this age and compare them. He’s growing up so fast and starting 1st grade and public school in a few weeks! Not quite ready for that, but I am so thankful that I’m working from home and will be close by. Anyway, I remember the big deal on Dylan’s 2nd birthday was his first haircut. Audrey’s hair has just grown to be ponytail length (barely), so they are about even comparison-wise.
Though July was an insanely busy month, I decided I needed to make her something handmade to wear for her birthday (you know, or I fail at motherhood). I found this generic Vintage Circus fabric at Hobby Lobby for about $6.99 a yard, and it felt like good quality! Soft and more drape-y than other off-brand quilting fabric. Well done, Hobby Lobby!
The pattern is Oliver + S’s Ice Cream Social. I like it because it only requires 3/4 yd. in her size, I’ve made it before, and large scale prints look nice. The headband was made with the coordinating print in this line.
On another note, I think our family is into archery now! It was really fun and we all did pretty well our first try.My darling husband:
