And then something happened. I just couldn't stop making them. So I made one, two three, four more. Two went to special friends for their birthdays and two went to my shop. So you can have one too, if you want!
An owl one went to my friend's daughter. Her youngest and my youngest have a birthday on the very same day. By the end of the summer, they've gotten to spend plenty of time together so for the past two years we've had a joint birthday party for them. It's always so sweet to see them together and we know that these shared parties may not be every year, but for now it's so very fun and sweet.
I've been so lucky to have several good friends who are crafty mamas. They inspire me and buoy me up through the hum drum days. (You know who you are, girls. Thank you.) So that mama of the same day birthday girl? Look at what she made my little guy! She made a shirt for him last year too, and each year he wears his number with pride and points to it on his shirt. Liz is one talented lady, and if you need an extra cute t-shirt from someone special, olliekate is the place to get it.
Seriously cute, isn't it? Check out the one she made for her little girl. I do love birthdays, sewing, and good friends.
