Coloring page dress # Project Run and Play season 9 sew along

I found this awesome idea at Welcome to the Mouse House last year and lucky enough to found this TIDNY fabric at Ikea store nearby. So I can make my version of coloring page dress for the girl.

My coloring dress from the Norah dress pattern

We trown in the coloring party. Each mommy made something from this fabric and let the kids color them. We have got some dresses, tops for girls and drawstring bags for boys. For my girl, I used the Norah dress and Tunic pattern which is the good frame for this project.

Coloring party
My girl is more than happy with her work (others kid as well). All of them very proud of themselves, so do moms!

So proud in her own color dress
I took the photo of her in this dress after many times of laundry. The dress was get worn very often. You may notice the color was fade a bit.

We plan to make another party in the near future, maybe the easy batik party. It would be nice if you can share the idea. We are during summer break. Any activity to entertain the kids would help the moms a lot.

Thank you for stopping by, I really love to hear your comment. :)
