The night before the birthday sewing :)
 
Ahh, I am so one of those types of people that waits to the very last moment to get things done for my family. I always say that I will changed, but :blush: :giggle:

It is my daughter's third birthday today! I finished these at 11:02 PM (which is a record for me, I'm usually up much later making the birthday outfit!).

First up is a doll made by Novia of Simple Diaper Co/Milk Noir Toys (okay, so I didn't make this, but she is an awesome WAHM and deserves a shout out for saving me with this doll! :giggle:)

The very last thing that I did last night was to make the moses basket for her new waldorf baby. She has been wanting one! :)

Here is her birthday outfit-a handmade skirt and an appliqued shirt:

These 6 skirts were actually her summer dresses last year. She stained the tops and they were too short, but she was VERY hesitant on giving them up. So I turned them into skirts :)

Thanks for looking!

Very cute! May I ask how you do the applique on the shirt? My son will be turning 3 also in about 10 days and I'd love to sew him some things, but never tried something like that :)

You use something called WunderUnder to attach the fabric to the shirt, and then use a tight zig zag stitch to go around the outside (technically it should be a lot tighter than what I used-but that takes time and it was 11 PM when I was finishing mine :giggle:)
