The Fourth is supposed to be in the 90's and we're going to the parade. Must have a hat to shade the eyes and protect the head of one precious little almost 3 year old! Tops for the girls! Such fun to sew!Miss R and Miss S will be really something in matching tops for the upcoming big birthday party. Great Grandma will be 75!
This year I bought 4th of July fabric months before the big day. I missed my sewing machine sew much I was buying fabric and dreaming of what I would sew.

Love how it looks on her and even though it was 90 degrees today, she wore it home! Good thing it's cotton!
