So, I made a promise to myself that I could go overboard with Michael's birthday party if I made everything myself. This both saves money and makes the event that much more special. I wanted to share with you a few things that I've finished up over the last two days (with the wonderful help of my mother-in-law)!! I have never appliqued before or really sewn anything that required great attention to detail so this was quite the experience. I have seen these exact items online and each was going for around $20.00. Total cost for these three pieces... $4.71 for all three!! Not bad, not bad at all. It has taken me a little bit longer to get them together considering my son's top teeth are causing him great pain (and Dennis and I sleepless nights), so the majority of my attention has gone to cuddling with Mikey. I hope he's over it in time for his big day!! More decor and party ideas to come.
