Preschool Prom 2009

Each year at preschool, the boys have a 'prom'. Anyone who knows me, knows that I never miss a chance to play dress up and make things. Yesterday, I got it into my head that I would figure out how to sew each boy a cummberbund and bowtie.


This year FP decided no to wear a dinner jacket, so as to better show off his yellow shirt. Last night, I tied Sheepies tie perfectly, but for some reason this morning I couldn't get it to lay flat to save my life.





Check out that Lightening McQueen fabric....I promise that no other kid on the block has one like it! I am kind of sad though that he doesn't have a matching bowtie.... I ran out of fabric and the best matching thing I had was some green blanket binding.... FP loved all the crazy colours together though!





This picture cracks me up! I really want the caption to read, 'Bond.... James Bond.'


Sheepie is sporting his favourite Finding Nemo Fabric here. I had just enough left from making his scripture bag to make his cummberbund. I also had some left over blanket binding that I used to give him a matching bowtie.

Just imagine these two knocking on your daughters doors in 13 years!

What a great idea! You're very crafty. The boys look very handsome.

Even if I gave birth within the next nine months, she still wouldn't be old enough to date. I can promise you, she will be DEVASTATED! I can picture it now, "MOM!!! Why did you have to wait so long to have me! Now I can't date Sheepie OR Frog Prince! You're always ruining my LIFE!"

Ahhh, tween-dom!
