That was the first one and it has snowballed from there.
I have since made 2 more of the same...
this love I made for Rubia's 1st Birthday in June. I have to say it is my favorite of the 3 I have made. I only had little bits of the purple fabric in my stash so I had to do some piecing. It's hard to tell in the picture, but there is a strip down the side of another print and I really like how it looks. Plus, I love the yellow and purple combination. I only had to buy a bit of brown felt for the hair...everything else came from my stash.
These sweeties are the Sleepover Pals from the book. I finished them last night and I am in love! Each one is a little different and I love how there is a sleeping bag to tuck them into. As I was sewing them the childhood song Playmate kept going throuh my head...
"Playmate, come out and play with me,
and bring your dollies three..."
I made these for Evelyn for her 3rd Birthday in August. I will tuck them away and save them for her big day. I might just go lock my bedroom door and play with them for awhile myself first. :)
Every fabric I used were scraps and bits and pieces from my stash. I didn't have to buy a single thing for these beauties.
And when Evie is done playing with them, she can tuck them each into their pocket...
...and roll them up to put them away.
I just love that.
This is a great book and I have one more project from it that I am working on it for Evelyn's birthday...I don't want to rush time, but, I can't wait for August!
How do I have all of this time to sew you ask? I have been squeezing it in in-between all of the craziness that is life these days...it's keeping me sane, so how can I afford not to?
