1  Lamb, Owl, and Bunny in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: June 17, 2016 10:42:40 AM


I made these awhile ago intending them to be party favors for my daughter's birthday party. She was going to have a shabby chic tea party. However, she changed her mind on what type of party she wanted before I even had them finished. I finished them anyway and all have since found a new purpose.


The lamb was given to my niece for her first birthday party. I let my daughter choose between the bunny and the lamb on which one to give her. She decided that since she loved pink so much her cousin must love pink as well. So she got the lamb.


My daughter decided to keep the bunny for herself. She named her Rose.


The owl, I decided to keep. She is currently on a shelf in my craft area.

They were all made from Dolls and Daydreams sewing patterns and can be found here.

3  Pink and Black Paris Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 26, 2016 12:02:04 PM
I made this doll for my daughter from left over fabric from a dress I had also made her. She loves the color pink, so of course the doll had to have pink hair. She is based off of Dolls and Daydreams Schoolgirl pattern, but I modified the hairline and changed up the outfit.



My daughter is a super creative moment named her Dolly.  Wink

4  Pink and Black Paris Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 26, 2016 11:56:55 AM


I made this dress for my daughter using Little Lizard King's Aria's Ruffle Dress pattern.  I wanted it to be longer than the pattern called for, but accidently added too much length. It goes down to her ankles.

You can't tell from the picture but the buttons down the front are little pink roses that I found in a jar of old buttons my mother had given me.

When I was finished, I had a bit of fabric left over, so I decided to make her a matching doll.

5  Pig Jumper in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 26, 2016 11:51:36 AM


I made this Pig Jumper from the Ani-Mazing Suspender Skirt pattern by Little Lizard King, for my 4 year old daughter who is obsessed with pigs. The pattern didn't include a pig face so I based it off of a doll that I also made for my daughter.

6  Ballerina Piggy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 26, 2016 11:45:30 AM


My daughter is obsessed with pigs and with ballet. So when her birthday came up, I decided to make her a Ballerina Pig! The pig pattern is from Dolls and Daydreams (as are the ballet shoes she is wearing).  I shrunk the pattern down to about 75% because I wanted to the pig to be a bit smaller than the original pattern.

Here is another picture to show off her shoes better.

8  HST Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 23, 2016 07:03:19 AM
Two years or so ago I came across this HST quilt tutorial.  I loved everything about it. The colors she chose and the pattern the the blocks made. Luckily, I had an almost two year old who loves the color pink. So I went shopping, cut out my fabric, and put together the top. And that is as far as I got. 

Two years later with the two year old's 4th birthday fast approaching, I decided I had better finally get around to finishing it. And it turns out she loves it. She told me it is her favorite blanket. So perhaps waiting was a good thing.

(I had planned to bind the quilt in grey, but somewhere along the line I misplaced or used the grey I had bought. So I ended up piecing the binding together with left over fabric from the top.)

9  Purple Rose Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 06, 2016 04:26:57 PM
I watched a video on You Tube a long time ago where someone spun little rose flowers into their yarn. I looked fun so I decided to try it. Two years after buying all the supplies, I finally got it done.

Here is the fiber after I prepped it. I took various shades of purple merino and some white faux cashmere and blended them on the blending board. The first half I dizzed off, and the second have a tried making hand pulled roving.





Next I took the first set and stripped it down to small pieces and threaded flowers onto it.  Then I spun a single from both sets. Unfortunately, with the first set I couldn't have all the small pieces completely separate and so they stuck back together. I had originally planned on having the flowers spaced evenly, but because of this they got closer together the further into the single I got.



And finally I plied them together.

10  Vintage Sundress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 06, 2016 01:37:20 PM
I noticed that my daughters dresses were getting too short. Unfortunately, most of the dresses in the store are shorter than I would like as well. Especially since she hasn't mastered the art of sitting like a lady in dresses yet.

So the only thing I could do was maker her a dress. I made this back in February from The Vintage Sundress Pattern by Simple Simon and Company. It has since gotten hot, so we are going to need to find a short sleeve shirt to wear under it.
