Yes. I’m a couple of months late on this beachy keen post. Even as I write this I’m thinking of fall, pumpkins, what to dress up for Halloween & wearing my Uggs, oh and apple cider doughnuts! Yumm..
So let’s take it back a bit. All the way to the middle of July. Schools out, the sun’s shining & the weathers warm. All we wanna do is hang out for lunch, have margaritas and enjoy the lazy afternoons….and it’s time to celebrate Paige and Wendy’s birthday!
I wanted to make their gifts this year…well, my mom did most of the making. I mostly did some attaching:)
Something fun & colorful was a must! I found these totes out shopping one day and scored big time with the robins egg blue handles. I bought them, a lot of them, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
From that to this…nailed it, right?!
I embellished them with some bright and modern crochet doilies and flowers handmade for this project by my mom.
A bag to use as a purse for a day out shopping or to use as a tote for a fun take-along project! Wouldn’t these make great bridesmaids gifts too?
I didn’t stop with the totes. I took dollar store flip flops, crocheted flowers, and a bit of blue yarn..
and turned that into a sweet pair to be worn with white capris or a sundress.
All I did was wrap the flip flops with the blue yarn and hand sew the flowers on…easy peasy!
Toes to match;)..blue of course!
I took so many feet pics I’m convinced my neighbors thought I’d lost my mind for sure this time.
A huge thank you to my mom for doing the crochet. She’s always eager to help with all my ideas! Even as I write this blog, she’s working on another project for me. I get so excited when we can collaborate. We need-2-create!
Keep checking in to see what we come up with next…
