Just Stay Little

I’ve seen some pretty darn cute birthday Parties out there on pinterest, and blogs and the online land of endless ideas. But I have yet to see a Birthday party inspired by a print of Fabric.

I saw this post this morning, and I just had to share!

 

Maggie of Smashed Peas and Carrots designed her littler girl’s birthday party around the “Just Stay Little” print of fabric, complete with cutting out all the little dresses and making the cutest decorations! You can see more pictures here.

Just stay little…please? Just last night I noticed how big my babies are in their beds. Oh dear. Does it really happen? Do they really grow up? Don’t answer that question.

Sorry if you are bored with seeing other people’s creations with this fabric. To be honest, it ┬áhas become a wonderful fulfillment of a dream of mine. As a designer and illustrator, I’ve had many opportunities to choose where I contract my work. And as i’ve contemplated the products and the people I work with, my vision has always been to let the end product inspire more creativity out of the consumer. Seeing photos like this make me feel like it’s all worth it. Art on the wall is nice, but I love seeing pictures of your puppet theaters, fabric creations and so many other things you’ve shown me.

 

Thanks for inspiring me!!

And also, are you going to The Creative Connection? Can’t wait to see you there!

    Adorable party! My daughter loved wearing your balloon print for her birthday too! Can’t wait to get going on my next Children at Play project!

    Omigoodness! I love this too, that is so darling. I am a grownup girl but would love this party!

    What an amazing party!! My little one wants an “Explorer” party (like Dora), so I think I’m going to make them explorer vests (from Oliver + S) with your balloon print. And, I never tire of seeing what people have created!

    My baby girl will be having her first birthday inspired by your fabric too, so stay tuned! Meanwhile, I’ll look at this log for some ideas to steal…

    Seriously, Sarah, what a great compliment! I LOVE that you shared this! …and just may have to revist the idea in 8 short months…

    Wow that is one beautiful party! Oh how I wish I had a little pink in my life :) I love all the blue and red and orange and green… but a little pink would make a pleasant change on the clothes line!

    Not sure about everyone else, but I’m definitely not tired of seeing what everyone is making. I love this fabric collection.

    The party was adorable too!

    This party is SO ADORABLE! I’m so glad that you’re sharing all of these inspiring ideas and uses that people have come up with. It’s great to see what other people are doing… and of course it gives the rest of us more great ideas too! ;-)

    I’ve never seen a fabric inspired party, but I am considering a fabric inspired tattoo. I don’t suppose I could talk you into doing a larger scale print of Aqua Balloons for that specific purpose?

    Hi Sara Jane!
    It’s been a while since we chatted, but I’ve continued to follow your blog, and I’m SO pleased to see all of the wonderful things coming your way! I think that the last time we emailed, you were just getting ready to start working on your children’s book. Such a wonderful creative challenge.
    And I know, you said, ” don’t answer that” to the question of “do they really grow up? ”
    As a momma who just sent her youngest off to college, this “Just stay little” print really tugs at my heart strings.
    I hope we’ll have a chance to greet each other and say hello at The Creative Connection!
    All my best, Linda Mordan
