J.’s All-Stars Baseball Birthday

24 Sep

Over the weekend, we celebrated J.’s 5th birthday.  J. has been passionate about baseball since he was baby, so it wasn’t a big surprise when he suggested he wanted to host an All-Stars Baseball game for his party. I won’t over share all the details about the party here, but we all had a great time!


I made a birthday banner to hang in the park’s little pavilion.


H. and I used the leftover fabric to make a mini dachshund using Amy’s free pattern.  Our 17-year-old mini dachshund passed away over the summer. We all miss her, but J. still cries for her.  J. has named his new toy mini d. after the real one.  He loves the namesake almost as much as the real pup.


I also made J. a tote bag using an Echino cotton/linen blend he picked out.  I lined it with more leftover banner fabric.  I also whipped up a quick applique birthday shirt for J.


J. wore the shirt during our annual fall family photo session.

      Nicole, I’m so sorry! We lost our Jack Russell last September. He was our best dog. We miss him so much. Loosing two dogs in such a short period of time has been tough for us. I must admit, our beagle is loving all the attention.

    So sorry to hear about your doxie. A friend just lost hers as well, and he was also 17. 😦
