Hot Mama's!

Last weekend a bunch of us got together to say good bye to Amelia and Natasha. Miss you guys! During the day on Saturday we played dress up and then took some pictures. It was so much fun! And it was so easy to take pictures of these beautiful ladies.

I have posted one favourite of each of these lovely ladies. If you want to see more, go to my photography blog here.

Thanks for such a fun day ladies!

For Ellie

Well, it's actually for Maren. For Maren's Birthday (which was back in February!) I know, I'm such a good sister! I promised her I would make a skirt for Ellie. Maren came over one night before her birthday and picked out material from the material I had for Ellie's skirt. The pattern I was going to use was called the Nie Nie Ruffle skirt.

I cut out all the pieces a while ago, but they sat by my sewing machine for months. I was waiting for a night that I could do it all at once, and I knew it would take me a long time. Last night I finally started at 8pm. And 4.5 hours later...I still wasn't finished. So many ruffles! But I finished today! And it only took me 1 more hour. It would have taken me longer today but there are only 4 ruffle layers on Ellie's skirt instead of 6 like in the pattern. Check out all those ruffles!

It was fun to make because it was the first real time I used my serger. It's not the best serger but it works for me! It was so easy to finish all the edges. I can't wait to see it on Ellie. I hope you like it Maren! Happy super-late Birthday!

Speaking of ruffles, the other day, I found Hannah wearing 4 of her most fluffy tutus. They were sticking out so far. It looked hilarious.

Silly girl. So photogenic.
