Birthday skirt and shirt

My littlest turned two this month!  She loves to wear all of her sisters hand-me-downs but I wanted to make her something of her own so I made a patchwork skirt from the Moda Bakeshop tutorial and appliqued a number 2 on a plain white golf shirt.  She kept telling everyone all day "I'm three, actually" and because she got a laugh has expanded that to "I'm six" (or eleventeen or whatever!).  What a darling she is!

Donuts anyone?

I really can't seem to get multiple pictures to work *sigh*.  I made this for a present for my daughter for her second birthday.  I used a pattern from Sweetie Pie Bakery but just changed the writing on the box.  Tim Hortons is like a drug - my girls will do anything for timbits!  The donuts are very very cute but K calls them cupcakes.  She knows cupcakes (and loves them) but I don't think she's ever had a full sized donut. (I really should start making things the girls are familiar with!).  Anyway, they have been playing with them, which is all that counts!

Love bird

I made this Love Bird from Molly Chicken's tutorial.  His body is terry cloth, his pants (?!) are flannel and he has a little bell inside.  He went to a new little baby - well, I'm not sure the baby actually got to see him before his older sister absconded with him!

Valentine's gifts

This was adapted from a tutorial from Sweetie Pie Bakery.  I made one box but then lost patience so made the second one into a little purse.  The girlies loved them but didn't really get it as they've never been given a real box of valentines chocolates!

Been busy . . .

Here's what I've been working on for the last couple of months.  I wish I knew how to include multiple pictures in some sort of organized way so I think I'll just do a post for each thing.  I should learn more about it but since this is just for me, I'm not going to get all wound up about it!

This was another birthday gift for a 4 year old girl - just a plain sketchbook covered in pink broadcloth and Jessica Jones fabric from I mismeasured (oops!) hence the little strip on the bottom.
