Myra is going to a Birthday party today. We Made the birthday girl a Doll. Myra picked out the fabrics and trims. She also did all the stuffing. I did the sewing and knitting. My favorite part of this doll is the swirl fabric used for the hair.
All the little strips are scraps, from the fabrics I have used in my Dear Jane. The blue border came out of my stash. This was a fun random project. I just picked the scraps at random chain pieced them together until I ended with the five strips. One ended much longer than the others but it was easily made smaller. This was a nice bit of easy sewing after all the Dear Jane blocks of the last month.
I am trying to use up scraps left over from my Dear Jane quilt. I think bookcovers are the going to be a good use for fat eighths. I also have a good start on a Stacked Coins quilt that will be a good baby sized quilt. I have bunches of 2.5 inch squares sorted out for a Nine patch of some sort. And I am thinking of Doing pinwheels with my 5 inch squares.
Renaissance day at school next week. They have to dress up, they get a grade for it. It is an all day event with games and activities. The pants and shirt are previous Halloween Costume parts. The Tunic and Hat are New for this event. It is a little big, but I bet even back then they got hand-me-downs or clothes made a little big to allow longer wear.
