Sew and Tell...

Its a little girls 3rd birthday tomorrow so I whipped up a little dolly blanket and pillow this morning. I used some of the scraps left over from this quilt and backed it with a lime green chenille.
Im quite pleased with how it turned out and Im sure dolly and Miss 3 will love it!
Ive also been busy making a hat. Ive been eyeing off these patterns for a while and finally got around to buying one . I made it up in a linen cotton blend and iI dont think it turned out too bad for a first attempt.
Have you tried taking a photo of yourself in the mirror? Its not as easy as it looks!
Anyway, hope you all have a great weekend.

Super hat, nice to see you in person too. What a lovely little present for a 3yo, I do wish I had the confidence to just whip something like that up.
