Lola Hair Clips and Art Smock

Before I post Ava's birthday pictures, here are two craft projects (both worn at the party).

The 1st one is an Art smock for Ava made from some Japanese coated cotton. The pattern is Simplicity 3802. The same pattern I made Emily's from.


The back view...

Ava was recovering from her tantrum under the table.



The 2nd project is these Lola hair clips. As in Charlie and Lola. I got the idea from this BLOG.
So here is Lola...see the blue hair thingies??



These were soooo easy. I think I'll make more. and they look so cute on Emily if I do say so myself:)



Yes, you did just look at 3 pictures that were the same just slightly different.

This one above was taken at home using different clips to keep the blue thingies in her hair. I used black bobbie pins at the party and they were good but fell out by the end of the day. So I got some black one like the pink ones above and that should hold them better.
So what I'm trying to say is, don't use bobbie pins or a color that doesn't match the child's hair!

Ava looks so cute in her art smock! So grown up!!!!

Emily can in fact wear anything in her hair and it looks cute! I would have never thought of trying to make hair stuff like that and they are darling.

So do you have the same reaction I do:Ava is so cute I want to squeeze her until she squawks.

How do you stand it every day!

Oh dear...I'm in love with the smock. What a great idea! The hairclips are CUTE - they look like little butterflies in Emily's hair!

Everything is so FREAKIN cute. Ava looked great in her smock, as did Emily and Nicolas in previous creations of yours. You rock. I love the hair clips to. They look soooo cute on Emily. I wish I could get away with wearing them =)

Looks like the girls had a lot of fun! And the hairclips were a good idea to make! They do actually look like they came right out of the cartoon! :) Very cute! Can't wait to see the pics of the party!

Jen: I do in fact want to squeeze the crap out of Ava ALL THE TIME!! The comments I get the most about Ava are: I want to sqeeze her and something about her ears. She just so yummy:)

Thanks everyone for the nice comments:)

Mary A: I've already put the clips in my own hair and wondered if I could get away with it....

Katelyn: oh Katelyn..what will we do with you? I'm still laughing from your comment.
