And the Emmy goes to…

“For this year’s Emmys, my inspiration started with the elegant oversized sash worn with traditional Japanese robes. The dress has a delicate bateau neckline with a graduated hem skirt, and we added a dramatic knotted tie to captivate on the red carpet. 

We were delighted to have found this beautiful floral silk ikat, as Aubrey’s favorite colors are pink and purple – I just knew it would make the perfect accent to the lavender silk satin dress. It is sophisticated yet sweet, the perfect complement to Aubrey’s spirited charm.”  Emily Meyer, Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer of Tea Collection

Several different styles were sketched for Aubrey’s 2013 Emmy dress.

We focused on fabrics that would work best with the fit and style of the dresses you see above.

We added color to our sketches after the fabric was pulled and sent images to Aubrey so she could choose her favorite. The dress was then transformed from this…

DIY: Pretty Panda Teddy

What are you going to do when your little girl grows out of her adorable Pretty Panda Tee?

I thought it’d be fun to turn it into a pretty little teddy bear!

1. Gather your supplies: Tea’s Pretty Panda Tee, old baby socks/stockings, filling, needle, thread, scissors, pins, iron, sewing machine (optional)

2. Iron wrinkles out of shirt.

 

3. Cut back and front panel out of shirt. Line up graphic on back and front with good sides facing each other. Trim shirt leaving about 1″ around design. Sew around panda keeping about 3/4″ away from edge of graphic. Make sure to not make any of the curves too narrow or she will look funny when you stuff her. Also make sure you don’t accidentally sew into her little flower.

4. Turn her right side in & stuff her to make sure everything looks ok. If not, adjust appropriately. Once she looks like you would like you can trim some of the excess fabric from the inside. Lay your socks or stockings underneath the panda and judge how long you would like them to be. Trim down socks/stockings if there is excess.

5. Stuff the foot of both stockings. Leave of the top of socks without stuffing. Pin feet to bottom of panda. Sew across bottom of panda and feet.

7. I worked with a baby shirt so I did not have much excess fabric near her flower. This left me with an awkward bit of the shirt’s collar sticking out of the top of her head. I hand stitched that part to make it look better. I also took in the bottom edges to make the curve where her body met her feet more gentle.

8. I wanted her feet to feel heavy and for her to have floppy legs so I shoved all the stuffing towards the bottom of the foot and stitched around the top of the stuffing.

9. All done! Now you have a cute little panda with hanging feet.

 

Here she is with her new friends – Vintage Minnie, Blue Ostrich and Black Bear. They are all envious of Pretty Panda’s stylin’ argyle feet.

What to Pack

Whether you’re sending your little ones off to sleep away camp for the first time or the fifth time, it’s never easy. Well, the packing isn’t ever easy. We know it’s almost impossible to not forget something, but we’re hoping this list will help make sure you remember the essentials – sheets and fan not included.

1. Pull out the iron on labels and grab a Rub-A-Dub marker. Many camps require that all clothing and equipment is marked with your child’s name, but it’s a good idea to label regardless of what’s asked. Send a marker along with your child to make sure the counselor can help with anything that was overlooked.

2. We understand that a monogrammed laundry bag probably isn’t required, but we suggest you take that extra step. Having a bag that’s unique and personal will make laundry pick up a little easier and drop off a little more fun.

3. Shoes. Slip on sneakers and a solid pair of sandals are an absolute must. Although they’ll come back worn and tattered, they’ll keep your little one covered and comfortable every step of the way!

4. Easy tanks and tees for everyday wear. Packing tops and bottoms that can be easily mixed and matched are ideal for summer camp outfitting. By sending basics, morning dressing won’t be hard on anyone.

5. Flashlights are helpful for the post campfire walk back to the cabin. This lantern/flashlight lights the way and will easily hang under bunks for late night letter writing.

6. Don’t forget the nice outfits! Dances and closing ceremonies usually call for dressier attire – A cotton dress and polo are easy solutions.

7. The days will be hot but the nights may be cold. It’s important to remember long sleeves, rain boots, and a lightweight jacket for maximum comfort.

8. Swimsuits! Splashing and diving could easily be an everyday occurrence, packing extras is a must.

9. Since they’ll be splashing and diving more often than not, make sure they’re covered with long lasting sunscreen. Wipes and mists seem to work best for kids.

10. Towels are important, but knowing which towel is yours is even more crucial. Having your child’s name marked very clearly makes it easy – and towel wraps are a necessity for crowded summer camp cabins!

Don’t forget to check with your local retailer to find perfect packing pieces!
