So as I write I am trying to keep under control the slight sense of panic I am feeling, as it would seem that I do have rather a few works in progress. Now as you know this is quite normal for me, however, the majority of these are either for Poppy's Birthday on Tuesday or Christmas the following week.
The little doll is one of two (ok..... so I haven't actually cut out the second one yet) that I am making using THIS PATTERN, although you'll see I changed the hair style. The teeny clothes are also taken from the patterns, with a few little extra bits and pieces added. Poppy still loves to play with dolls and she requested two that she could take out with her. I had planned on making a simple little tote bag for them, but then I thought wouldn't it be lovely if they had little beds to sleep in and somewhere to store the clothes, well as you can see I may just be getting ever so slightly carried away, but oh my, I am having so much fun!!
The felt bows I made a few weeks ago for her party, but I still haven't had time to finish them off and we invited a few more party guests, so more brooches are required. All birthday girls need a dress, I'm making up Poppy's using Kwik Sew Pattern K3905, which I bought HERE and some pretty baby pink cord from my stash. It's a great pattern and has come together really easily, I love the simple style with the pleats around the neck and on the sleeves. I just need to add the buttons and buttons holes down the back and hem and then I'll be there.
In my spare moments I've been on Pinterest looking at pretty party cakes. I'm not sure if this is a good idea because no doubt I'll be comparing my effort to those I've found. Pinterest, now there is somewhere you can lose yourself on for a couple of hours if you're not careful. You can find me on there HERE if you would like to take a peek and please do let me know if you're on there.
Right, must dash, I have full day's sewing ahead of me and Andy is home until 3pm today, so I'm hoping to get some of those WIP's finished!
I hope that you're having a lovely weekend too and are successfully working through your Christmas projects!
