Mr. Men Bowling Shirts: Retro Bowling Party


My nephew turns 6 today and this past weekend, we celebrated his 6th birthday at the bowling alley. 


He had a really fun Mr. Men-themed retro bowling party.  For my daughters' bowling shirts, I found some boys’ shirts at the thrift shop and basically pulled off the same refashion I did here only this time with licensed Mr. Men fabric.


I also found some vintage bowling patches on Etsy, which made a unique addition to the shirts.IMG_4434IMG_3328IMG_3256IMG_3281

As you can see from the shot above, lots of smiles.

Happy birthday 6th birthday little man!


Thanks for stopping by,


P.S.  thanks to friends with UK connections, we were able to get a copy of the Little Miss Princess book and colouring book which is based on Will & Kate’s wedding.  How neat is that?



  1. What a fabulous party! I love the patches that you scored on etsy. I might have to borrow this idea for Josie's next birthday. Too cute!

  2. Happy birthday to the little man :)
    What a fun theme for a birthday!! I absolutely love what you did with the shirts - ingenious! And the patches ..ohh... making that extra effort to get them makes the shirts perfect!

  3. such clever ideas as always... and how cute is that book??
    have a great day :)

  4. Wow those shirts are so cute! I grew up with Little Miss and Mr Men books! I once told my mom I wanted to collect the whole series. She didn't buy me the whole collection, but bought a new book only after I was done reading one. I couldn't believe i was THAT patient!! I would love to get my hands on that Will and Kate book!! So cute!!

  5. That looks like so much fun - and the pictures just made me smile!!


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear what you think!
