Sewing for the sisters

In my last post I showed you some gifts I made for the arrival of baby Grace.  Shortly after Grace was born, her big sister turned 3.  She is one of Joshua's friends so I wanted to make her a little something special as well. 

A Twitter friend, MrsDG (who also blogs here) came up with a great suggestion of making a personalised applique picture.  I loved this idea!  Since I was making gifts for both girls at the same time, I decided to make them one each. 

I wanted to keep the designs the same for both pictures, but using different fabrics.  They are also very simple designs. 

I was really pleased with how they turned out!  You might also have noticed that the fabrics used for Grace's picture match the fabrics used for her other gifts :)

As a little extra gift for big sister Isla, I decided to make the doll that was featured in a recent issue of Mollie Makes magazine. 

The doll was really easy to make.  Here's how she turned out -

Pretty cute!

And I couldn't resist having a little photo shoot with the 2 toys I made (you can read more about the bunny in this post) -


  1. The pictures are lovely. I love the cute bunting and pretty fabric you've chosen. The Mollie doll looks great too. You've reminded me to dig out the stuffing so I can finish my version off. She looks great next to the rabbit :)

  2. Perfect presents for little girls! I love them all - I need to try making dolls and toys! xx

  3. Oooh! I've been looking at that little Mollie doll, too. Yours is so pretty!!!

  4. Aww, all looks lovely! Fab gifts to receive :)

  5. They look fabulous!! Well done!!...and you know just how much I love that bunny! :)) xx

  6. She is lovely but that bunny is gorgeous! He looks so cuddly :)
