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!
