Counting sheep....and more

Hello....I'm doing the last minute rush to get everything finished for Amy's Jasmine. Her birthday is next week. It seems to have come around very fast!! Poor little Amy is very unwell...has been for a few weeks now and the Dr can't work out what's going on :(  We're hoping she's feeling better for her birthday or it's going to be a bit of a fizzer for her. Anyhow, I made Jasmine a pair of flannel PJs like the ones I made for Emily. I love this pattern, it looks just like people PJs.

I had this cute flannelette in my stash and thought it would be perfect for Jasmine. They should keep her snuggly and warm on cold winter nights :)  The little knitted boot slippers were really quick and easy to make. I made a pair for Emily in purple to go with her PJs too. The eyelash yarn is just enough to give them the cute factor.

Next up is the tunic, leggings and knitted boots.....

The tunic and headband are made from printed panne velvet that I bought on sale at Spotlight a while back. I made a pair of brown ponte de roma leggings and knitted the boots from the same pattern as the slippers, using contrasting colours and making them longer in the leg. The belt is a piece of grosgrain ribbon with a Tim Holtz buckle.

Next up is a shirt I made to go with the blue jeans from one of my early posts....

I used a Kwik Sew pattern for the shirt and some fabric from my never-ending stash :)  It was a bonus that I didn't really have to alter this pattern for our Aus Girls...most of the 18" doll clothes patterns need a fair bit of adjusting to fit properly.

Here's another pair of jeans......

These ones are made from stretch cotton, using the Liberty Jane skinny jeans pattern (altered to fit our girls). I made a simple black t-shirt to go with them.

And last to show today is a knitted shrug/vest. I made one each of these for the girls but haven't given Kate Emily's yet. This is such an easy pattern.....basically knit a rectangle, sew two small seams leaving an opening for the arms and it's done. I chose to leave off the closure so it sits open.

Hasn't Sage done a wonderful job with the modelling today :)  She is so patient with all the fitting, dressing and undressing.

Hopefully I'll be back soon with some happy photos of Amy's birthday! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
