vintage sewing 7th birthday party!


Today's winning party feature goes to this darling VINTAGE SEWING BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Pure Joy Events. Christine's daughter, Kate became hooked on sewing after receiving a sewing kit and toy sewing machine from Santa. A few weeks later...she asked for a sewing birthday party. What a cute theme!

Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane fabric collection became the inspiration for the party. On the day of the party, the children's playroom was transformed into a sewing room, complete with a vintage rotary sewing machine, vintage spools of thread and hand-made pin cushions. Christine created a simple backdrop by stretching fabric on embroidery hoops of various sizes and hanging them on a giant cork board. Vintage blue mason jars holding fresh flowers were placed on each of the tables, and DIY ruffled fabric garlands {tutorial here} were draped across chair backs.

Sewing themed desserts included a sewing basket cake by PhoebeCakes, spool of thread cape pops {tutorial found here}, and sugar cookies by JP Creatibles.













For one activity, the girls used embroidery thread to stitch their first initial and a flower onto eco-felt that was stretched over a hoop {you can purchase this craft kit here}...


The girls guessed the number of buttons in a jar {answer was 157} and played a few rounds of "hoop toss"...


Beautifully sewn pencil pouches by Bagel Creations and hand-crafted button cards were give to guests as they left the party...

The first thing that you need to do is develop good saving skills. Sounds a lot like Cheap WoW Gold real life, huh ? If you learn how to save and PC Game Code you start saving early in the game, WoW Gold then it will be much easier on you when you need WoW Power Leveling to spend a lot on your epic mount. One of the WoW CD Key ways to help you with this is to get a bank buy Rift Gamecard toon.You might think that the mailing buy rift key fees will hurt you, but the bank toon will save cheap rift cd key you a lot of time so it will be worth it. It also helps rift cd key because you will not be as tempted to spend the Rift Gamecard money if you have forgotten that you even rift key have it.You will also need to learn to make microsoft point money as fast as possible. The best way to do this microsoft points is to sell everything to a vendor.
