Rori's birthday pressies

After a very busy weekend setting up 5 weddings i managed to get a bit of sewing done this morning. One of little fishes friends is turning 2 this week and I thought a cute dolly was a good idea. the pattern is Maisie by Kate Henderson and was in the More Softies book I got a while ago. I haven't made her up before but she was very easy and came together nicely.
I also made a cupcake skirt as her mum likes them and of course had to make a little bag to put her pressies in so they could be carted around.
I also was trying to take some pics of the little fishes in some chenille pants I have been making so I could have some shots of the pants "in action" to put on the Made It website when I get around to it, but alas they were not very model like with their posing. Couldn't resist showing this pic as it makes me laugh to look at it. I had said to her "now, make a pose and smile" and this is what she did. Oh well, we will have to try again later.
I have finished my latest quilt of love except for the binding so will post a pic when that's finished.
I am thinking I might like to make a mobile to hang in littlest fishes room next. There is a simply gorgeous pattern on spool sewings website for a little bird and a few pics of things they have done with the birdies made from the pattern.
No more chair covers to iron (double YAY!) so I am itching to get sewing.


  1. Kids , LOL ! Your softie looks great .

  2. Oh she looks so cute in those pants!!! I swear she has grown since I saw her a month ago! Love the other creations too - Mum is actually making the same doll at the moment :)
