I'm on a roll!

Now I've started there's no stopping me! I finished the crocodile applique but the t-shirt is already too small, so I've taken lots of pics as it may be her one and only wear for this one!

Luckily this alerted me to the fact that the green t-shirt would also be too small, so I had to find a different base for the rabbit applique. I think it's come up pretty well on the stripes actually!

All this sewing has inspired me to get a bit more creative for her first birthday THIS COMING SUNDAY! (How quickly did that first year go?!) I've had some trouble finding a cute little party dress that's not an outrageous price, and then I remembered this little hand-me-down dress that I had put aside.

The funny thing is that she currently only has one pair of shoes and they are red, so I've taken up the challenge to find a way to bring some red into this dress. It's resulted in an unusual colour combination that I might not have thought to put together but I'm really liking it!

My Creative Space

I set up the sewing machine this week ready to finish off these appliques, but it seems I've lost the electric cord for it! (Must be out in the shed somewhere!) So I had to resort to hand stitching! I'd have to say I really enjoyed it, and I think it's really adding to the finished appeal.

I guess I am half way through with only one finished so far, but it looks great. She's growing so fast that it wont fit her for long, but that's OK. We can enjoy it while we can.

My Creative Space Today

Today I finally made some time for a little crafting.

I hope to finish them off over the next few nights when the baby is asleep.
