Aw, you're nice.  Would I look like a ridiculous old lady wearing kiddie hair ornaments?

Now those flower barrettes I sent you for the girls just look like child's play.  Thanks a million for hatcheting my self-esteem back down to where it belongs.  :D

Bunsen your's were truly gorgeous and you used creativity.  All I did was push a button on my embroidery machine.   :-*

Izzy's dress looks awesome. I'd wear something like that as a shirt, though, because I'm anti-dress (on myself).

Your daughter also has a ridiculously beautiful smile. Seriously, tell her to knock it off.

I agree with panda re: Izzy's smile. Reminds me of yours (funda's ;))

Eventually she's going to meet my son. When that happens I suspect Mr. charm and sociable will meet his match.

Haven't really been in a sewing groove lately.   :-\

For Izzy's ballet friends.


Skirt


And the matching barrettes I did.


I have been trying to round out Izzy's winter wardrobe from what she already has.  Totally in love with this!


She's thrilled to have a cheetah vest (and it's going to piss off her father  :laugh:).  I haven't decided if I'm going to put snaps on it or not.

I have two friends who like to hand sew.  I made them each a little travel sewing kit from this tutorial.  Very easy and will certainly make more.

Fronts


Backs (with hoarded twill tape labels)


Inside with a few extra goodies.

Upcycled t-shirt.


Shower curtain for the girls bathroom that I cut too short and then had to resew the bottom back on. :shakinghead[1]:


Doll clothes for Izzy's birthday.  The doll on the left is new as well.


Details of one of the outfits.


Izzy's birthday outfit. The pants are my challenge entry. Ruusunnuppu leggings from Otto 1/2010.  She chose most of the fabrics.


And some details.

Izzy's birthday outfit is marvelously outrageous, or outrageously marvelous.  Looks like she likes the coordinating doll clothes, too.
