Tea Parties, Polly's and Dresses

Tummies full of breakfast this morning and having a nice cuddle before Liam heads back to bed for his morning nap.

My little Princess is turning THREE next month. She is such a little person now and has such a personality. Just these last few months she has "got" birthdays, so when she went to her best friend Sam's birthday back in March she told me for her birthday she wanted a Tea Party. Isabella has just started coming up with her own ideas out of nowhere and I find it fascinating what she comes up with, so I must say I often comply!

So the past week has been designing and making teacup invitations and planning a tea party for next month to celebrate. Last night they were all finished ready to pop in the post today to all her little friends. On the sewing front, I HAVE been making things, just haven't had the camera charged/within reach to take the photos.

I borrowed the Softies book from the library a couple of weeks back and late last week Bella asked me to show her the pictures so I was reading her all their names and we came across one named "Polly". So.. "ohhh Mummy sew Isabella a Polly. Miss Polly Mummy"... etc etc etc repeatedly. So one night after she went to bed I made up "Miss Polly", and she loves her. There is nothing better than making one of the kids something and they actually love it!.

Isabella has told me that Liam needs the Monkey from the book, so he is next on my list.

I bought this courdoroy a couple of weeks back hoping to make a warmer style dress for Isabella and found this simple Simplicity 3489 pattern. For some reason on the inside of the pattern they call it a jumper?? Confusing. Dean thinks it should have pockets, either one big in the middle or a couple smaller on her hips. Still deciding.

Oh my you've been busy! I love that softie! Now I want to get the book and try some out. I'm scared though. LOL! I love Isabella's dress and the tea party idea is gorgeous! I might have to keep that in mind for Isa's 4th birthday. She loves playing "tea-coffee".
