3 - YEARS - OLD (...okay, almost)

Well, I am jumping ahead, but I was sooo excited about sharing the outfits I made for the girls' third birthday. Which is actually not until next Monday.

As I mentioned before I was really looking forward to working with something other than PINK all the time. So, I decided to make them blue outfits. I might have gone overboard a bit, but for some reason these 1001-shades of blue still appeal to me.

Some of you may have seen the Can-Can-skirt from Dana Made. I thought it was such a great idea to to have the color-changing-effect on the ruffles. I did not buy the pattern (yeah, I am cheap like that...), but tried to figure it out myself. And the skirts fit. So, it worked out okay.

I also made the leggings by using a pair they already have as a guide to draw the pattern.
The T-shirts are Target's "Ultimate Tee" and I appliqued the number on them.

The hairclips are also handmade.

I found this awesome tutorial on PurlBee. It's super easy and quick. I think it did not take me longer than 15 minutes to make one of these. The original pattern calls for woolfelt. But, I thought the regular cheapo kind worked just as well.

Happy 3rd Birthday girls! WE LOVE YOU!
