my little pink fairy

it's been a while since the last time i did pink saturday. been helper-free since middle of april. after 11 years, finally it's just "us" - our family. all five of us. yes, i asked for it. even if that would mean sacrificing lots of "me" time. blogging and sewing especially. i wanted to live simply and teach the kids to be responsible, learn to do household chores, and be independent.

anyway, on to this week's event. my entry is a thumbelina - yes that's what she said she is - costume that i made for my little one for her schools halloween party.

i managed to whip this up, 3 hours before the 8:00 am party. my plan was to let her wear one of her floral dresses + wings. but... creativity and sewing mojo came in early in the morning and so this came about...

she was very happy and been thanking me endlessly on our way to the party. the smile on her face... priceless!

she merrily joined the games like... pinning the nose on pinocchio...
 finding "under the sea" treasures...

and shooting apples inside the pumpkin...

thumbelina was very happy and filled her bucket with lots of treats from other parents. unfortunately she got sick after the party and mom did not allow her to enjoy the candies she got :(.

now, she wants a "purple dress with belt" for her. just like june's dress in little einstein.

it's nice to be back.

And it's lovely to see you back!

What a fabulous dress - you did a brilliant job, and I can see your darling was the belle of the ball.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Welcome back! She is just lovely! And what a cute little costume for such a little cutie!

Sorry for the late visit- I think of busy Saturdays as a "Pink Weekend" since it takes me that long to visit everyone!

Happy belated PS!
