Create Coordinating Outfits for Fun Family Photos!!

Karen was lucky enough to get to spend some time with her gorgeous family this past week and we just had to share some grandbaby cuteness with you all!! How sweet is this little trio of outfits made by their aunt, Jenny O'neill with Michael Miller's Porcelin Tile Aqua print? I am absolutely loving the result, just about too cute for words!! But how great is this idea for taking family portraits or holiday pictures of the kids to send in your Christmas cards!! You don't have to create anything that difficult to get the impact that matching outfits gives you! Davis is wearing simple elastic waist shorts (you could use a pj bottom pattern or a pair that already fits your kiddo as a template) and a tshirt embellished with a tie shaped applique! But you could literally create anything you wanted! All you have to do is find a shape you like on the internet, print it out and use it as a template to cut out your fabric and fusing, then iron down and add a simple whip stitch or blanket stitch to hold it down for good!! Or if you're just making it for a photograph, who needs to spend the extra time stitching?? Little Wells is wearing a sweet and simple jumper and Ava has on a super easy-to-create pillowcase dress! Love that big ribbon tie!!!

These little outfit ideas don't take much time at all and its such a fun way to present your family in a photograph!! How sweet are these kiddos??
