My sister, Leslie, is back with another great party idea:
My youngest son is a big fan of police, rescue and fire truck vehicles. We do daily "drive-bys" if we are anywhere near the vicinity of our town fire station (and even when we aren't we somehow manage to end up driving by). So, today we celebrated his 4th birthday in true Fire Truck Party style!
I knew he would love a t-shirt with a fire truck, but I could not find one in stores and what I could find online was either cheesy and/or expensive. So, I found an imagine online that I liked, printed it off, and cut fabric shapes mimicking the online image. I used knit fabric which does not fray (I actually used old t-shirts). Then I ironed the shapes onto fusible interfacing and then ironed them onto a basic black t-shirt. From past experience, I knew I would need to sew around the edges, but my sewing machine was giving me problems that night, so I decided to use embroidery floss which actually turned out a lot cuter, (I think).
He was pretty excited about it.
We had a beautiful day and had the party outside.
Do you have any spring birthdays coming up? I will be back to post two more party ideas over the next few weeks: Skylanders and Batman!
