Polka Dot Dress

Earlier this year my little niece was born in London.

Last week my Dad and his Partner went over to the Big Smoke to meet her and do some travelling for a few months.

With him, I sent along this little dress for her to wear this summer (the one they are currently in)(a teeny 3-6months size) and a picture Camilla drew.

After pondering Camilla said "Maybe she would like to visit NewZealand, it's very beautiful here." Ain't that the truth. Maybe soon ;)

This is my 7th Savannah Dress I've made in the last year! I don't even need to read the instructions now ;) It's such a great dress, if you're looking for a versatile pattern for beginners you can't go past this one!

Dolls Carrier

Earlier this year I made a dolls carrier for a little friend who was turning two!

We were having a little morning tea for the Little Lady midweek and the idea struck me to make a dolls carrier, just like what her Mama uses for her little brother... the day before. BAH. Quick trip to Spotty for all the nuts and bolts (this is no "stash" project, in that it needed specific chords and clips).

Isn't it always the way that inspiration strikes at the 11th hour?

I used the Little Kiwis Closet Soft Structured Dolls Carrier pattern ($8) which I had actually won from the Mend and Make New blog a few years ago. It sat in my inbox, intending to use it for my own children but... you know.

Its a great pattern that is well worth getting if you are a confident beginner. The end product looks very professional and will be well worth your time and money.

I'm happy with the results, and as you can see, our sweet Friend is pretty happy too :)
