I finally got my computer working again and got a picture scanned of my kids from my friends wedding on Ocober 22nd. The dress that my daughter is wearing I made from a Simplicity pattern. I altered the sleeves though, the dress wasn't meant to have long sleeves, and these are actually seperate from the dress. I made the ring bearer box that my son is holding, as well as the flower basket and the flower 'crown' on my daughter's head. I had made another dress but the little girl that was meant to wear it was unable to take part in the wedding. Anyway, I just wanted to show off my beautiful kids. Here is the link to see the picture.

Oh the kids had all kinds of fun, me, well I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, on top of making all those things (and the ones I listed may have been half the stuff I made for the wedding) I was also the photographer, music organizer, co-coordinator, decorator, and crazy woman of the wedding. I enjoyed the wedding, but I am SOOO grateful that it is over!! Thanks for looking at the picture though, I hope to get more wedding photos up and show them off if the bride doesn't mind.

They look great and like they are having so much fun. The dress is lovely, I like the way you did the sleeves, are they attached to the dress??

The sleeves are seperate from the dress, they just slide up the arms once I got the dress on her. The only shoes she had were white or black and the bride was going with off-white not actual white so we decided to let her go barefoot. It looked absolutely adorable.

I added a couple more pictures. I asked the bride if I could show off all her wedding pictures (once I get them on a page that is) and she said I could. So I will let everyone know when I get them up.
