Birthday Beads

My Lil Sis had a birthday so I made her a little gift!

I had a lot of fun picking out colours to make the pattern!

I backed it with a scrap of pink fleece and used a pretty patterned ribbon to hang it up.

My Little Pony Dress

When you know someone who loves MLP and has a birthday, well...  A Pony Party Frock is clearly the perfect gift!

 I paired the pony fabric with a purple cotton and added white buttons and a purple satin ribbon!

My Birthday Cake

Quite pleased with how this turned out!

It's an ombre three tier vanilla sponge, covered in buttercream.  I loved making it and I also enjoyed eating it!

Needle Felt Cupcake

I made this cupcake kit up the other day!  I think it's so cute!

It took me about an hour and I thoroughly enjoyed making it!

Surprise Post

I don't know about you all, but I love surprise post!  So I thought my furthest away pseudo-niece, might as well!

I made her a dressing up dress (Lizard isn't the only rainbow fairy princess I know!) and an everyday version and bundled them up and sent them off.

The everyday dress is a forget-me-not poly cotton print, with wooden buttons and a cream satin waist ribbon.

The dress up frock is pink satin, with a rainbow organza over skirt, a lilac waist ribbon and a silver neck ribbon.

I was lucky enough to be sent a video of them being opened and I can safely say they were very well received!

Happy Birthday Me Part 2

On my actual Birthday we visited Arnos Vale.  Possibly not to everyone's taste but I had a lovely time!

This time, I wore a circle with an Alabama Chanin t-shirt bodice and a circle skirt which was drafted by the fabulously talented Katy (who also helped sew it, because I decided I needed this dress with less than 48hrs before I actually needed to put it on because I'm clever like that...)

The petticoat is one I already owned and the waist sash was very hastily made from faux satin.  The dress itself is a gorgeous floral print t-shirting.

It's a very fun outfit and I can't wait to wear it again!

That said, petticoats add quite a weight to you, don't they?

 Lots of photos, because why not?

Parasols, incidentally, are amazing and I encourage everyone I know to acquire one!

Happy Birthday Me!

I've leveled up again and so I made myself a couple of frocks to celebrate!

This is McCalls 7117 version B with the longest length skirt for maximum twirl!

 All photos were taken at my birthday party, just before we played 'Parcel Parcel' and made candyfloss!

 I had a wonderful day and I can't wait to wear this dress again!
