Fourth of July Outfits

I hope that all of you had a very happy Fourth of July!  We had a wonderful time with family.  We had so much fun riding on granddad’s boat, playing at the beach, climbing trees, etc.



I wanted to share some of the outfits that I made for the kiddos.


I made 90 minute shirts for the boys.  (Please ignore the serger threads that I hadn’t cut yet.)  This is a tutorial from Made and it is super easy.  The boys wore these for watching fireworks on the beach.

I also made these rocket shirts for the boys.


I used a few different techniques to make these shirts.

1. Freezer paper stenciling for the stars and space ship on the back of the shirt.

2. Bleach pen for the smoke.

3. Applique for the rocket.  This rocket ship pattern is from Crap I’ve Made.



I found this super cute and easy idea for flag shits for the girls.  They are a quick sew but I would recommend drawing your lines for the rickrack placement before you start to sew.  I tried to wing it and the shirt stretched and twisted too much and I ended up have to whip out my seam ripper on the first shirt.

We wore these shirts to the Fourth of July parade.




Happy 4th!
