Our little man was very excited to attend his first friend birthday party yesterday. Abi and her family attend our church and we see them regularly as her mom and I are involved in ministry together. In true "Faye fashion" as husband states, I made Abi a birthday shirt with her name and a coordinating headband as a gift.
Due to our lovely retail stores already stocking winter clothing, I was unable to find a short sleeve shirt so Abi is prepared for the first cooler days of fall with this new shirt.
I fell in love with the colored specks in the shirt and knew that it would look so cute personalized. I choose a teal chevron cotton fabric to create the name applique. Who doesn't love a little chevron?!
I just love coordinating headbands!
The flower embellishment was adhered to a piece of grey elastic.
The yellow button adds just the right pop of color on the teal chevron fabric!
When I asked little man what he wanted to give Abi as a present he gave this detailed response: "I want to give her a Minnie balloon in a box. When she open it the balloon will pop out and go up, and up and up!" I thought it was a very creative and thoughtful gift so we made C's wish come true! Abi really loved receiving the balloon and I was sure to explain it was executed exactly the way our little man had described. In case you were wondering, a plastic storage tote works perfect to house the balloon. I just gave a disclaimer I would be taking the tote back home with me! We also had a balloon weight placed on the end of the balloon ribbon so it would not completely fly away!
Happy 4th birthday, Abi! We had a great day celebrating with you!
