Another little girl to sew for!

My twin brother and his wife had a little girl (their first baby) a couple of weeks ago. Yea! another little girl to sew for! At their request, I made this plastic bag keeper for the baby's room. I thought Far Far Away would be a gentle introduction to princesses!

Phoebe bag

I made this purse for my mom for her upcoming birthday.  I love the fabric so much I want to keep it for myself, though!   The exterior is Sketchbook Garden in Slate Isso Ecco & Heart from Hawthorne Threads and the interior is a super soft brushed cotton.  I might just have to make another one for me!  I used the free pattern from artsty craft babe

Fitted Skirt

In the last few months, J.'s requests for clothes changed from pink to purple and just lately from as-twirly-as-possible to as-tight-as-possible (*gasp* visions of future negotiations regarding "appropriate" clothing are flashing before my eyes!). 

I had one knit in my stash so whipped up this skirt for her. She was super excited when she put it on -- it was "exactly what she wanted" (despite being neither pink nor purple) but apparently the knit was too stretchy and within minutes it was not tight enough for her liking.  She hasn't worn it since *sigh*.  Oh well, it probably cost a buck took all of about 30 minutes to make.
