 Okay, tell me I am  not the only one who has done this...I told my husband I don't neednew matchy matchy outfits for all the 5 kids this Easter, I love doing it, but it adds up, and nobody needs new clothes. But I really wanted this super cute outfit fit for my little man Moosehead. Then on Friday (2 days before Easter) I decided that I desperately did want them to be matchy matchy on Easter, at least coordinate. I didn't want to spend much money though, plus I already made a deal with my husband.  I rushed to Material Girls (my LQS) and bought a few adorable prints to make my oldest and youngest girls some Easter clothes. (The other 2 girls I just pulled from their closets)


I followed this tutorial. Turns out you need to be exactly this girls size to make this, or be smart enough beforehand to figure that even though you can tie the top, if it is to big (which it was) it wouldn't really work properly, all twisted in back, and bunched up skirt that didn't lay nice. I tried to tweak it and make it work, but in the end, 3 hours before church on Sunday, I basically restarted. I love how it turned out, even though it was still to big for her....

I followed this tutorial I found on pinterest. Using some darling Heather Bailey, ruby for sleeves, and woodland tails for the main body. LOVE it!  I already had the woodland tails from this gorgeous pile of fabric I got in the mailbox a week ago from intrepid thread. This is my favorite Riley Blake line right now, freakin' cute!



 And this is how darling they all turned out!  Cute kids huh?  Ahh they make my heart pitter patter...



And I may blow this photo up really large for my entry, the one I have now only has the three oldest girls, pathetic I know!   What do you think?

What did you guys spin up this week? Can't wait to see...

Your family is adorable!
I was frantically sewing up until Easter, too - and my husband said something like "didn't you tell me last year to remind you NOT to do this again this year?!?!" Oh, well!

Sarah Craig said...

Laura said...

You must blow it up! Your daughter with the missing front tooth is too cute!

That is a great picture of all the kids. You should totally blow it up for our entry! And they all look cute in their matchy outfits. I find now that for family gatherings my sisters and I still end up matching even though we don't try to.

Aaaah, they all looks so adorable in their gorgeous coordinating outfits. Way to go mom!!! Ypu're my hero. My only rule for the kids this Easter morning was no jeans or stretchy pants.

Amanda said...

Great pic. It looks like a real picture and real smiles. That kind always needs to be big in an entry! Whenever we have a great shot it goes in the entry along with all the others. I rotate occasionally but i like the jumbled history of our growings and goings.

Lovely kids, lovely pictures. They're all nicely coordinated without being too matchy-matchy. Could you please tell me what fabrics you used for the skirt.

Amber said...
