PARTY PHOTO OF THE WEEK

This week's party photo comes from Kelly S's David's 1st Birthday.

The party had a "construction" theme, so how much do we love an adorable older sister in work goggles!

What a creative party Kelly put together for her son David (who is just as cute as his sister)!

DIY Tutorial From a Catch My Party User -- How to Make a Tool Belt Party Favor

Christine from Following Phubie made these adorable tool belts for all her guests at her her son  Camden's  Under Construction Birthday Party.

I asked Christine if she would share how she made them, so she put together this fabulous tutorial for us.  Thank you, Christine!

So here's what Christine had to say...

For Camden's construction theme birthday party, I made tool belts with 3 compartments to hold pretend hammers, wrenches, and pliers. They're not just great for carrying tools. The kids use them to lug Legos, crayons, and little cars.

To construct a tool belt for your little builder, all you'll need is some fabric and ribbon.
  1. Cut fabric into two 13 3/4" W x 14 3/4" H pieces.
  2. Cut two 18" long pieces of ribbon.
  3. Pin ribbon 3/4" from the top edge of the left and right sides of the printed fabric.
  4. Place the solid fabric, front side down, over the printed fabric, and then pin together.
  5. Sew along the edges using a 1/4" seam allowance. Be sure to sew over the ribbon at least twice and leave about a 4" gap at the top.
  6. Turn the fabric inside out.
  7. With the solid side facing up, fold the bottom over until it's 3 1/4" from the top.
  8. To make the different compartments, sew along the left and right edges. Then sew another line down the middle and one 3 1/8" from the right.
  9. Finally, hand stitch the opening along the top.
Wow, Christine, what a great project.  I love how the final result is both cute and functional.    Thank you again for sharing this.
