Pajama Party Sneak Peak!

This year when I asked Ava what kind of Birthday party she wanted she surprised me by picking a pajama party. Pajama Party!! Yes I can totally do that! 

I got started on searching my favourite place in the world for idea's because really I am inspired by all of you out there!
Of course I'm talking about Pintrest! 

I found some pretty cool idea's but didn't know what exactly I would do about the invitations. Last year I was pretty happy with the treasure maps so I knew this year had to be equally if not more epic. 

And then I looked down and saw my leftover fabric and an Idea formed...why not make the invitations look like beds???

And thus the Pajama Party invites were born:

Aren't you just dying? I have been waiting to share these forEVER it seems. It has been very hard to keep them a secret but to build anticipation up to the event I've somehow managed to keep quiet!

I created a tutorial on how to make these because I love you. I will also be (hopefully) offering this whole to do kit in my Etsy Store for you to customize and use in your own Pajama Party!!

Fabric (I used some I had lying around the house)
Needle and Thread (I purposely used contrasting colours)
Cotton balls
1/4 inch Balsa Wood
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Scrapbook paper (for invite information) and glue dots

Pretty much lather rinse repeat for the blankets. I forgot to take pictures of these but I measured them out to be 5 1/4 inches and 4 1/2 inches. Fold a small portion of each side over and do the same staggered style of stitching. 

This was my favourite part. I LOVE that she got to be a part of this and she loved painting the wood all by herself! Don't you love her tongue out in concentration?

I hope you enjoy these invites as much as I enjoyed making them. If you have any questions about them please feel free to email me!
