First step in the embellishment phase

Yesterday you saw the costume without embellishment and now I can show you the first step of the embellishment process.

Fabric before glitter This is the fabric of the pinafore before I begin the glittering. Glitter in process And this is the start of the glittering. I paint a fine line of glue made to be permanent after drying onto each individual large circle and sprinkle with glitter. Time consuming but the results are so going to be worth it!

An update and a first reveal

I have been MIA for a while now due to some things going on in life.  I have written a blog update that has not been finalized yet too.  I'm just not comfortable with it yet.  But this is something I can share with you.  My baby is a clown this year at AAA and today was the initial costume parade.  That means that all the children in her class were to bring and wear their costumes for inspection today.  Being finished head to toe is where we are supposed to be and I am so happy to say that she was done head to toe!  We finished it last night late but it looks so cute!

And the best part is that she loves it!  She wanted to be a button clown and I think we have made that work for her!  Once it is all sparkled up, I will share another picture.  We got glitter to paint on and lots of sequins to add!
