Thing 1 and Thing 2

Just over a year ago little Mia was born and four days later, her niece Olivia, was born.  I've only had the chance to spend a few days with them since then but from what I hear, these two are unstoppable.  They were both walking well before their first birthdays. 

So, for their birthdays (which fall right before Halloween) I couldn't resist making them these little Thing 1 and Thing 2 outfits.

The top is an envelope T from Ottobre 3/2011. and the leggings are traced from some of Elena's. The fabric is ruby red interlock from Fabric Fairy.  I used two coats of Speedball paint for the white and then Juan wrote in the words with a Sharpie (it cracks me up when he let's me drag him into my silly projects). 

I especially had fun making the little barrettes.  They are just alligator clips covered in red grosgrain and then blue feathers hot glued to a piece of felt.  

Here they are again, up to no good.  Happy birthday sweet girls.
