Toddler Bow Tie

We are attending a family wedding in late April, and this will be the first time I’ll dress Robin in smart wear (well, smart casual). I’d purchased a cute blue/yellow shirt from a charity shop a couple of months ago, and managed to get some coordinating chino trousers from Primark. However, I felt the outfit was missing a little something…

Onto Pinterest I went! After a good gander I realised what the outfit needed was a bow tie!

I had a look on Etsy and generally around the internet, but I couldn’t find one that was right. Then I remembered I had some leftover fabric from the lampshade I made.  So back onto Pinterest I went and soon enough I came across this step-by-step guide from Simply Being Mommy.

I did however not use a glue gun, did a tiny bit of sewing and added some elastic instead of a brooch pin. But I did however follow the fabric measurements and how to create the bow. I think it turned out pretty well in the end! Let’s hope Robin doesn’t yank it off on the day, I’ll be sure to update this post with a photo of him when the day comes đŸ™‚

Wedding Card – by Rocketlolly

I wanted to take this moment to write about my very talented friend Katy (aka Rocketlolly). Yesterday I went do a friends wedding but before that I really wanted a lovely handmade wedding card to give them. Katy currently has this stunning illustrated postcard print on her Etsy store and even offers to add calligraphy text for an extra small charge. I simply trimmed is a little to fit some A6 kraft card stock and there we have it.
