Four Ribbons is an expression of our artistic abilities as friends, mothers, and wives. We love to create for ourselves and our families and now we are sharing those things with you. We are two best friends living on opposite coasts, who love our Marines dearly and learn and laugh with our daughters daily.
I have been working hard on these dresses for my three little girlies. I actually planned to make them for Daddy's up and coming deployment to a country filled with sand, but decided we would make them even more PATRIOTIC and use different red, white and blue fabrics.
My youngest dress is made out of the back of my husband's cammie blouse.
My middle blondie picked out her fabric for her "pillow case dress" and is made out of the cammie blouse sleeves, I had to remove pockets and some button tabs to make it work. I think I might do more work on it before deployment comes, but she loves it.
My oldest wanted a dress with straps and a flower, she even picked out the buttons. Her dress is made out of the legs of the cammies.
I am excited I still have the whole front of the blouse and the upper half of the pants.... what should I make next????
Again, Happy Fourth of July.
My thoughts and prayers are with all those troops that support our country, I am forever in amazment at your sacrifices.
