Almost 10 days for RJ’s Birthday, his 1st Birthday!
Time passed so fast, I still can’t believe it.
In my search for the perfect outfit, something that really wasn’t bought for an expensive brand at least, because parents know how much a party can be expensive!
I wanted something I (and Dad) that we could remember as special and be personalized, since we are both in DIY things.
Remember my post about RJ party? There was this outfit I really liked and then I put my DIY part of the brain to work.
Here is the result!
|You will need:|
|A short or long sleeved vest|
|The vest are great because of the flap in the neckline|
|Fabric Glue. You can either glue it or sew it…
I had tried the glue and works great.
|A bow tie and Ribbon (1 meter) that can match or not|
|A character your child likes and his birthday number.
These patches can be Iron on.
|Measure the ribbon from the under flap till the trouser line.
You want the ribbon to make the ilusion of entering the trousers.
|Cut it to the size|
|Use a lighter to create a seam in the ribbon, so it won’t get damaged.|
|Apply glue in the ribbon
(sorry the picture was playing tug-o-war with me in this post and some pics were crazy)
|Apply the ribbon. Don’t worry about the glue appearing.
After some hours (at least 6 hours drying very well) they will disappear.
|Apply glue in the Bow tie (I love bow ties!)|
|Apply the Bow tie. If you want put a piece of paper inside the vest.
(another crazy pic)
|Apply the patches the way you want. I glued mine but you can Iron On them.
If you want to Iron on, please let the glue dry at least 6 hours.
|And voilá! RJ birthday oufit!|
