Peplum Shirt Refashion

 I decided to make matching peplum tops for my girls and I love the way they turned out.  The hardest part was figuring out the math..I may need a little refresher in Geometry.

Of course they love how flowy and twirly they are. This fabric was cheap, cheap so I bought the entire bolt...maybe I will need a matching flowy skirt.

 They went together really quickly after I figured out the math and the best hemming and I even got away with no ironing :)

 I couldn't find any shirts in the little girl's section that fit the bill so I found these in the women's dept. They were a little big but I figured they could wear them longer that way.  Added a couple flowers and  just a little fabric at the top to tie in the color.

 This fabric is seriously the best..I may have to make some flowers for their hair to match.  It just ruffled up all perfect and...well flower like.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Kid Craft

 Soooo summer is super busy and also SUPER FUN!! We have been having a fabulous time just chillaxin, swimming, getting sun burnt (me), making popsicles...and crafting up a storm. 
Yay us!

 My little girl has been browsing my kid craft Pinterest boards and is very ambitious...she managed to pull this one off in about an hr. We made our caterpillar out of an old oatmeal canister and painted it with acryllics.We cut all of the food out of a mixture of felt and foam...just what we had on hand.

All my kids have been enjoying this one, especially my youngest he thinks it is too fun to put the food in himself as we read through the story.

I have tons of projects ready to be room collage wall, peplum shirts for my girls, farm quiet book and curtains with DIY I will be back soon.
