Making Stuff: Kitty Cat Dress {Knit Dress Refashion}

by This is Carrie on October 21, 2011

I wanted Pumpkin to have something special and cat related for her dog & cat themed birthday party, but with all the party prep I didn’t have a lot of time. So, I found an adorable, vintage heat transfer on ebay and slapped it onto a little, thrifted, knit dress. Voila! Note: ebay is a […]

by This is Carrie on October 8, 2011

As has become the tradition in our family, guests were asked to bring donations in lieu of traditional party gifts.  When Pumpkin found a flyer for Operation Blankets of Love on our doorstep a few weeks before the party, we knew it was the perfect charity work with for her Dog & Cat party.  Operation […]

Gingham Dog & Calico Cat Birthday Party: The Goody Bags

by This is Carrie on October 7, 2011

Since the kids got to take home their ears and collars, I kept the goody bag contents pretty simple. The little bags held a homemade, doggie bone, sugar cookie (some of the little cats were offended), and a kitty/puppy super bounce ball.  I also wanted to include this little pet store activity book, but they […]

Gingham Dog & Calico Cat Birthday Party: The Costumes

by This is Carrie on October 4, 2011

Every time Pumpkin talked about the plans for her “Dog and Cat birthday party” she would remind me that all the boys needed to be dogs and all the girls needed to be cats.  Leave it to me to have a bin full of fur fabric in my stash as well as some gingham and […]

Gingham Dog & Calico Cat Birthday Party: The Decorations

by This is Carrie on October 3, 2011

Pumpkin has been planning her “Dog & Cat” birthday party for almost 2 years (we only do parties every other year in our family).  After doing a little research, I found the perfect vintage book for inspiration, “The Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat.” It’s a funny little poem with a gruesome ending where the […]
