Remember Ice Cream Boy from my last post?
He turned 2 today.
A couple of weeks ago I found this really great half-yard set of fabrics in a line called Wheels by Riley Blake. Now I have told myself over and over, that I have enough fabric. But really. "Enough" can have such a flexible meaning. It's so, uh....relative. But still, I couldn't really justify the purchase.
Until I talked to my daughter-in-law, Christa, and asked her about the theme for Levi's birthday party. Here's kind of how that conversation went down.
Me: Have you thought of a theme for Levi's birthday party.
M: Cars. Like the movie "Cars" (which we have watched a gazillion times)?
C: No, cars. You know, just cars. Levi is really into all kinds of cars.
M (lightbulb going off in head, thinking about that line of "Wheels" fabric): Uh, is there anything you need in the way of decorating? You know, like a table runner, bib....?
C: A table runner and a bib would be GREAT.
M (to myself): SCORE!!!
Ordered the half-yard set of Wheels fabric. So cute.
Quilt Camp in February. Even though we each pack more projects for the weekend than we could possibly get completed, it is tradition to stop at Bear Paw Fabrics. Just in case we find something completely "necessary." Like "On the Go" by Clothworks. Besides the fun fabric, they also have a playmat-style panel. Remember the flexible definition of "enough"? Uh, yeah....
I had purchased three half-yard cuts of fabric for the back.
dilemma, as in "what color should I pick for the base? gray? brown? black?"
"Sewing on the Edge." So this bib will probably become a collector's item as the only product made by "one in every color." You know...probably something to be handed down from generation to generation.....?
And Levi's car party? Creative decorations and yummy food. (check out the license plate cookies--completely amazing).
Powered by cake, I'm pretty sure Levi will be a boy on the go!
