Tea and festivities

For your 2nd birthday you absolutely need a fancy new dress.  Bonus points if it includes your brand-new BFF.

Cheesy, pre-shirred Dora fabric? Check. Five inches magically cut from the middle and re-sewn? Check. Fit through the chest? Check. Toddler proof?

Um....


...no.


Ok. I'll re-try the ribbon straps I made initially.  At least I got the tea set done. In addition to the scrumptious Strawberry Lemon Cake there are some lovely chocolate tea cakes available.

Yum!

And a choice of lemon or herbal tea. Great!

What a fancy party we can have!


I know she'll love some of her other presents, too. Like the Backyardigans sticker book.


And the DORA!!!! coloring book.

(Twenty Minute Interlude. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves.)


Rylee's teeth: 0. Mommy's sewing skills: 1


Or as my two-year old has been saying for months now...."Mmmmm! Tasty!"

God, it's a killer when they ignore handmade gifts! Happens everytime here :(

I'd totally play with your tea set though!

Adorable!! Oh, and the tea set is very cute as well. I love her Dora dress (amazing how they can latch on to the tackiest fabric and somehow it works). The butterfly Mini Mod is too adorable as well. Nice work!

I love how her dress turned out! Can't wait to see it in person. Love the Lindsay-inspired censorship! The tea set is RIDICULOUSLY, I mean SUPER-DEE-DUPER RIDICULOUSLY CUTE! Well, done, mommy!
