Whale Outfits

We recently went to Sea World for a fun family vacation.  My parents thought it would be fun to get the whole family together and I am so glad we got to spend time together and enjoy a fun weekend in San Antonio.

Back in March my sister and I found this cute whale fabric and my grandma bought it (thanks Grandma Y.) so we could make matching outfits for the kids to wear to Sea World.  I’m a sucker for matching outfits!  I remember going to Disney World with our cousins and having matching polka dot pjs and my sister and I always had coordinating outfits, so at least I come by it honestly.

I made the girls ruffle skirts using the same pattern I used to make their Easter ruffle skirts.

My mom made the boys shorts, since I was running out of time to get everything done.  Ok, truth is I’ve never sewn shorts and the pattern looked complicated so I convinced her to do them.

I used plain white tank tops for the girls and t-shirts for the boys to create custom whale shirts to match their new bottoms.  I used the same whale graphic that I made the whale coin purses with.

I used heat transfer to iron them in place, stitched around the edges and finally added a button eye.

They all looked so cute in their matching outfits running around Sea World, and it made it easy to keep track of them!  I thought I got a million pictures of them, but turns out I didn’t get any good ones of the outfits…I was too busy trying to capture their awe and joy!

 This was the only group shot we got of all of them and we bribed them to take it when we got back to the hotel.
Even Aubrey’s beloved stuffed monkey got an outfit to match.
