Im a long time lurker, first time poster. I owe alot to this community for inspiration, and this project is no exception. I borrowed a few ideas from here when coming up with this pattern.

These are Christmas gifts for my nieces, ages 5 and 2.


The older one is a little girlier, so I used pink and purple trim. She loved the sparkly buttons.


The younger one is a little more tomboyish, so I trimmed it accordingly. It might be a little too boyish, but cute enough that I dont think it matters.


The adjustable neck worked better, too bad I didnt think of it sooner. I prefer the pocket on the little one, too, but Im not sure it would have worked as well on the larger size.

Super cute!! I want to make some for my girls but I plan on using that vinyl material that some people use on their tables. That way it cleans up easy! I love the style of yours though I havent seen anything like it for lil girls, thank you for sharing!

Very cute! I would love to make these for my great nieces, did you use a certain pattern? These little girls live several states away so its hard to get the sizes right sometimes without patterns. Appreciate the help.  Chris
