Birthday Parties Galore!!!

With multiple children, it is not uncommon for us to have to juggle them around more than one birthday party on any given Saturday.  Today, my oldest daughter and oldest son both have birthday parties to go to at the SAME time.  Thankfully, my husband will tote the boys and I will hang with the girls.  Here is what I came up with for the gifts...

My daughter's friend got an American Girl doll for Christmas, so to add to all the "Hello Kitty" goodies that we got her, I whipped up this cute little doll outfit.  The top is a "pillowcase" style and is very simple to make and really doesn't require an actual "pattern."  The skirt is a wrap skirt and can be reversible.  There is a free pattern for it found here.

It was so quick and easy, that I made one for my daughter's doll too.  1/4 yard of each fabric choice will make two skirts.  Hannah liked the shirt tucked in, but it is equally cute untucked.  (I NEED a better camera!!!)

Aidan's little friend is turning four, and he is having a pool party.  To go along with the water toys we got him, I made him a hooded towel.  My children are certainly enjoying theirs, and I hope Johnny will love his too!

Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!
