Her new apron

Miss K grew out of her apron and needed a new one. It had to be full length to provide enough coverage for activities from helping me knead dough to watercolor painting. I used pink twill ribbon for the ties and made the side ties long enough to wrap around her and be tied in the front. 

I made this right before Thanksgiving… last year. Yep. But, it's ok. It still fits her and she wore it again today while watercolor painting. 

She is sugar and spice, for sure!


Skylar's Doll

Earlier this summer my friend contacted me to make a doll for her sweet daughter's birthday. I loved making it for her. Such a lovely doll for such a lovely girl. 

The dress material with cupcakes and polka dots is pure sweetness. 

And, of course, the cupcake ribbon headband adds a touch of decadence.

The thigh high boots with lace trim are one of my favorite parts!

Such a delight to make and send to dear Skylar.



This sweet little girl of mine loves to paint. 

And paint. 

And paint. 


elephant parade

I made up this elephant pattern 5 or 6 years ago and just love it. I love how with a simple change of fabric the entire elephant  style changes. The hand stitched ears add that perfect touch.
