Making It With Allie - Jessie

Christmas was lovely for us!
We went to Daytona Beach, Florida to visit with family.
And we were able to make it home without too much hassle...
The kids played and had a ball!
I have to say, I think a nice comfortable 65 degrees is rather enjoyable for Christmas dinner!
At one point, I even took my dinner plate onto the outside porch!

AuBrynne opened all of her gifts from Santa and was very pleased.
I made her something she had been asking for, for months!
“A Jessie Dress”
Now, Jessie from Toy Story does not wear a dress, but I knew what she meant…

So, I made her a Jessie shirt, with Yellow fabric and Red ric-rac and Red Embroidery.
Then, I fashioned some chaps to go over her jeans.
We found the perfect belt and Goodwill.
I was VERY lucky to have found the PERFECT cowgirl boots at Target on clearance!
And last but not least, I found a red, flocked foam cowgirl hat at Dollar Tree!
All I had to do was use a paper punch around the edge, then threaded some white grosgrain ribbon through!
A yellow bow for her Jessie styled braid completes the whole ensemble!

I think it turned out adorable!
And it was just exactly what she wanted, so she was EXCTATIC!

Well, It is Thursday and that means it
 Making It With Allie!

I am super excited to see all of your fun blogs!
And to finally maybe get our daily life back in to normal mode and get back to regular crafting!
I am excited to have you all inspiring myself and others!

So, what have you got?!

Link up your post, not your main blog...
I'm not trying to be naggy about that -I want to look at each and every post and then comment, and if it is buried behind lots of new posts, I have a hard time finding it! So, just link up the post, guys...
Follow along if you like!
Then, grab a button (over on the left sidebar) if you can, or want to...
Then, share some of your much appreciated comments over at the other links you visit!
So, link it up friends!

This linky list is now closed.
