We are generally pretty low key about birthdays around here but this year I'm stepping a tad out of my comfort zone and going theme party. It won't be a big party but I hope it will be sweet and fun and memorable for the kids and their cousins. Jellybean will be five... that's a pretty big deal. And since I haven't thrown a theme-type party in at least a decade, I'd say it's about time.
The theme will be the charming Miss Suzy and I've been steadily collecting ideas on my Miss Suzy Party Pinterest board. I am rather excited to see it all put together. The first of my prep work is complete. We have four little girls in the family who definitely need a Miss Suzy apron to add to their party dresses. I used this easy-peasy pattern for a toddler apron to make them. They really came together super fast which is the speed at which I prefer to sew, not because I don't enjoy sewing, but because I am impatient.
I used leftover fabric from Easter 2011 (which I purchased far too much of because it was gorgeous) in pinks and greens. I did find the sweetest pink squirrel fabric for sale but did my husband the favor of using perfectly good scraps instead. The only modification I made was to narrow the sash width.
So... here they are. I will post the girls modeling them after we have the party....
