I have a little bit of crafty stuff to show you that is completely unrelated to a swap or Audrey and Maude.
Chloe was invited to a Birthday party tonight at a ceramic painting shop. They had to wear their pj's and make icecream sundaes! So what to buy an eight year old girl that is not Smiggle or Build a Bear?? After wandering around for ages I suddenly realised it would be quicker and easier to go home and make something.
So, inspired by a top of Chloe's, I whipped up this little number this afternoon and I LOVE it!!
Chloe and I went through the ribbon jar, the button jar and the fabric stash and together came up with this colour combination.
You can see I was interrupted - check out how I sewed on the buttons!
I added some ribbon to the straps for a bit more detail.
And gave her a little happy face.
I might have to make some more of these!
But that was just a little break from doing my doll quilt for Doll Quilt Swap Four and creating my latest Audrey and Maude pattern. The latter is a secret but here is a teaser of the doll quilt.
It is due to be finished this weekend so other than going to work tomorrow, you know what I'll be doing.......
I leave with you with a snap of my other little doll who just looooves the camera!
How I wish I had those eyelashes!!
