Day Out With Thomas!

Thomas the Tank Engine came to our area last weekend so I got tickets to take the kids. I had taken Punky when she was 2, so now that Munky is 2, I thought he should get a chance to go too! When I had taken Punky, I had sewn a dress just for the occasion. Wow, I can't believe how much she has grown since then!

This year, since my sewing machine is put away to make room at the dinner table for Munky, I wanted to make a hair bow for the outing! Being too lazy to come up with a ribbon sculpture, I enlisted the help of my online friend Shannon from GHButterflies, she makes some awesome images! I asked her to make some bottle caps for a bow center as well as a bottle cap necklace for Munky! She did a fantastic job!!! I once thought about making my own bottlecaps, but for now, I think if I need some I'll just order from her, it was too easy!

I had intended on making a pigtail set for Punky, but a few days before I made the bows she said she didn't want to wear pigtails, just one ponytail. So I made a bow to wear on her ponytail. I have one bottle cap left over, trying to decide what to do with it now!

Anyway, here are just a few pictures of our "Day Out With Thomas". Photobucket

I remember that dress! It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that you made it.
Looks like every one had a great time.
