As part of a school auction item, my fellow Sewing Club teachers and I hosted a sewing themed birthday party for 10 kindergarteners. We gave the birthday girl a sewing apron just like the ones we wear. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but her cake was made to look like her. Each girl made 2 summertime projects - a sunglasses holder and headband. The whole thing was just too cute!
The sunglasses holder was an easy hand-sew project. For embellishments, we used stick-on flowers, hearts, sparkles, letters, etc. Trim was hot glued around the edges. Adults did the hot gluing, of course.
The best part was making the headbands with a machine! I used maya*made's tutorial for quick headbands. She's right - they are quick and were a perfect party project.
The favors were button candies from Bake it Pretty. As yummy as they are cute.
Happy Birthday, Meriwether!
