Well... actually her birthday was almost a month ago... but here is what I made her!
An Ariel swimming suit.
I've thought about making these up in the style of each princess and selling them for kids going to Disney World.... but it never gets done. Maybe one day.
I just love how it turned out, with the little green ruffles.
I used my All 4 One Stylish Swimsuit pattern for the suit, using the frilly view and just adding the extra peplum to the skirt.
I know that is my pattern, but I just LOVE it. I can put them together so fast now, after making so many.
I just think the fit is great and you can make the swimsuits look so much different.
Ella loves it. I was hoping I would get this reaction from Emma, too...
To match her new Bitty Baby that we got from the American Girl Doll store.
I swear... they like it more than clothes for themselves....
Of course, baby had to have a headband, too.
Then, I found this awesome flannel fabric on sale and decided to make her some boxer shorts, too.
The pattern I used was the Oh, Boy! Boxer shorts by Fishsticks designs.
I got it to make my nephew some boxers. He's two and doesn't like his undies!
The pattern was already printed off and taped together, so I just traced off the girl's size and made them some. I need to make some for W, too, but it's getting cold out, so I may just wait. I don't think he'll wear them as underwear. I don't know...
But... there you have it. Emma's birthday gifts!
They were so fun to make.
I was so thrilled that she liked them.
I'm not looking forward to the day when Aunt Cole's handmade gifts aren't exciting anymore....
