Decided to work on some smaller projects for awhile; needed some sense of accomplishment as so many of my quilts are WIPs.
First did this little friendship tote for my dd. She just loves to carry a bag and loves her fabric scraps, so this was perfect to do for her. Loved the pattern found over at p.s. i quilt by Rachel . Easy to do and alot of fun, using my machine embroidery stitches.
I think she likes it :)
Then I've wanted to do a Waldorf doll for ages. Even got a kit from Amy of Dancing Rain dolls ages ago in hopes of making one for my son. But that never happened. So when I noticed Amy was doing a giveaway if you posted a pic to the flickr pool in September of a doll made from her patterns/supplies, it was just the right incentive to get me to try my hand at one! I'm so glad that I did! It was so much fun. I learnt so much as it was totally different in construction than any other doll I've made before. This one is the Snuggles pattern which is perfect for my 18 month old daughter. She loves it too! I have the patterns and supplies for the Pocket Pals and a 16" doll so I'm looking forward to making many more for my dd in the future.
That's all the finishes at the moment. Next I need to quilt the various tops I have sitting around here and get caught up on some blocks for the A Tisket, A Tasket BOM group. Lots to do. happy sewing every one!
