My St Patty outfits are comming along well, I do a little more each night when the kids go down, I tried to work on them this afternoon while the kids were up and remembered WHY I dont do that, when preston tried to IRON the tiara I spent 30 minutes designing and smudging it all up :(   I think I was able to fix it pretty well tho! I mostly just have hand sewing left to do on them and add ribbons to the girls' tops, and then I will make one more set of overalls for their very special big brother's grave, he passed of SIDS at 8 weeks :( and since I put "World's cutest Leprechaun" on the baby's bibs I will put "Heaven's Cutest Leprechaun" on baby Josh's and hang them on his flag pole at his grave, I made wings to put on his too :) 

*ETA* I just want to clarify that these outfits are not for my kids and it wasn't me that lost the baby, but some very dear friends of ours, if you would like to read his/their story you can click on this memorial graphic :)

So anywho here they are so far :)

Last night's work...

After I took this picture I put X's & O's on the back pockets of the girls pants, and the rainbow and pot are just set on, I decided to paint the rainbows on instead but will sew on the pot o' gold once I paint on the gold :D

 

Then today I painted on the front legs

I hate how the flash effects the pictures :( I tried to go all natural but dont have enough light at night for a clear shot LOL but you get the idea.  I had the GREAT idea of using these iron on tiara's that were jeweled but only the big jewels stuck the little ones did not so I ended up drawing around them with siler glitter paint:)

AND here they are so far :)
