Growing Up into Flower Girl

Today was the Princess' last day at nursery. In precisely 13 days time she starts school.
She is ready.
I am ready.

But is the school ready, ready for Flower Girl?!?

For fun, the nursery had a Super Hero Day. 'Come dressed as your favourite Superhero' the invitation said. However, the Princess couldn't think what superhero she wanted to be. (Actually she wasn't entirely sure what a superhero was, but lets gloss over that bit.)  We fired a few suggestions off but nothing seemed quite right, until we struck upon the idea of a made up superhero, and Flower Girl was born.

From concept...

through cut up sheets and dresses, and rather dodgy face painting by me, Flower Girl was born (or should that be bloomed?)

Special powers not specified, but she can zoom...

and can take out a baddie with one BLAH face.

In 2 weeks she will have a different uniform on and I know she will be as happy and confident then as she was today walking to preschool with her knickers on show.


  1. Ahaha, LOVE THE knickers on top! Flower Girl looks like she could take on any baddies.

  2. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Flower Girrl rocks!

  3. This is amazing! I have been expirimenting with fabric flowers for a while now and this is the best one I have seen. Thank you so much for sharing!


Oooh, I do like a good comment :-)
