Spirit Week!

So.... William had FUN week this week and, of course, had to have something special to wear everyday. I LIVE for stuff like this! I just love spirit days!
It is much harder to do a boy, though... I can't wait for Boo's and Lulu to do spirit days!

Day 1: Art day

This was easy and fun. I took some cheap aprons I got on Clearance at Hobby Lobby and cut off the bottom of one of them, this will form a pocket. Then I made some bias tape to go along the edge of the pocket.

I used these adorable designs from Lynnie Pinnie and this add on pocket from SWAK- Viola!~
Art apron.

I probably shouldn't have been making this (in the middle of)the night before, as you can see, my pocket is crooked. Oh well....
He loved it!!!

Day 2: Game Show Day

I have to say... this one stumped me. I couldn't see dressing him in a suit and tie like a game show host, so we went with a simple 'The Price is Right' style name tag.
It took some serious convincing for him to be satisfied with this... but it finally worked. When I suggested wearing a jersey... you know... games... he just stared at me blankly and said,
"But everyone wants to see what I'm gonna wear tomorrow"....
What have I done?

Day 3: Bubbles!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Lyndsey for supplying me with this adorable bubbles applique. It could NOT have been more perfect! And I have to say, was William's favorite of all. I made each of his things at night after he went to bed and had them as a surprise in the morning. This was, by far, the favorite!
You can get this cute applique here.

Look at those little freckles! :) He's so cute. And sweet.

Day 4: Picnic Day!

And Lynnie Pinnie comes to the rescue again with this FREE watermelon slice, which is perfect for William because he is a watermelon FREAK (just like his Daddy) Paired with this cute little ant from Planet Applique, made the perfect picnic shirt. (This one is my fave)

and then last night, he had an 80's dance...

but you'll have to wait until tomorrow... because in the process of looking for some polly pocket clothes under the couch I found my long lost book that I've been searching for.
It's reading time for me. Wooooo hooooooo!

Glad you found your book- or should I say my book. Love the outfits. Art and Picnic are my favorites. Texas is calling you- come home- come home- come home. Bluebonnets, salsa, hot hot days, unlimited fabric hording, pattern fittings, Dylan, Sophie, Megan, Judy, Sharon, Liz, Huckleberry (okay he's not calling your kids names) etc.....

Love, love, love the watermelon and ant! I'm totally stealing that idea.

Got to laugh about Game Day - he's probably getting a lot of mileage out of all the outfits you make him! I think you may have created a monster. :)
