Sewing Some Presents


I have been sewing stuff...what??? I know you are all shocked.

I have been sewing a lot of things for presents as of late. Two I kind of want to share with you...mostly because I love them.

Take this guy...


Domo arigato Mr. Roboto. I totally knocked this guy off from a robot sewn for us by a friend using THIS pattern. A pattern that looks totally AH-mazing, I was just in a crazy mood and decided to see if I could whip one out myself. I did it, but I will say this, the pattern robot is TOTALLY cuter.

I still love my not-as-cute-robot. So did the Little Man it was for.


My other hand-crafted gift was the oh-so-popular Black Apple doll. I did use the pattern for this. I might have embellished her up a bit with the scalloped collar, the flower and the teeny tiny apron.


I also chose to leave her face off...don't ask me why. I just like the simplicity of it. I will probably try a little face next time.




I also decided to put together a sweet matching apron for her new owner.


Still sewing away over here. Some last minute Easter projects and some more gifts. Wish me luck that I can get them all done.

If I haven't said it lately, 
I sure appreciate all of you and your loveliness and kindness.
Thanks for reading this little blog!

I love those black apple dolls. I don't know how well she will wash but I think it would be neat to include some washable markers with her and the the gift receiver can make their own face, over and over again. Even if she is only hand wash, those washable markers seem to wash away with a spray bottle really easy.

Love them both...and Athenas idea of allowing the lucky recipient to do their own face...fabulous work...
