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 :)
