So she was thinking instead of lolly bags they could all take home an apron and a cake box full of cakes. But, ahem, could I make the aprons for her ? COULD I ?! I live for invitations like this!
A trip to spotlight was in order. We found some cheap poly cotton blends for $5 a metre and birthday girl picked her favourites:
Gratuitous arty shot
And of course the birthday girl herself had to have a home made gift from me. A cute pair of pj pants and a little matching pomander / fragrant sachet bag from Nicole Mallalieu's Homespun project.
I didnt have any lavender so I filled it with sand that I had drenched in Rose Geranium oil. And yes the oil overflowed and made a greasy stain on the bag. Sorry, birthday girl!
ps - oh this is a little bit exciting. Did some labels using t shirt transfers. How great is this ?!
