Hawaiian Day Shirt

The preschool years have  QUICKLY come to a screeching end.  Sigh.  Where did the years go?  Friday was a hard day.  After two years of preschool (for 3 & 4 years olds) my daughter has officially graduated and will be heading off to Kindergarten in three months.  I didn't cry, but I thought about it.  On the last day of school the preschoolers have a private party; meaning no parents.  Last year they had Pajama Day and this year was Hawaiian Day.
I decided to cut up some of Kaitlyn's old long sleeve shirts, much to her displeasure, and sew a lei onto a tank.

Although she was upset the to small and stained shirts were cut into flowers, she loved the shirt.
Here she is right before going into the school.
Kindergarten here we come!

EDIT: I bought the grass skirt at Party City however if I would have checked them out sooner I would have made my own.  It's literally green raffia sewn with two straight stitches to a 1" elastic ban.  So if you want to make your own it would be easy.
