I've finished puzzling out this new stitchery design.. ready to cut out, add some patchwork and make into a cushion. A few little details to go, then the pattern to write up.
Maya was really a bit hot today but she did strike a pose for me to show her dress. I've had this pattern Simplicity 5118 for maybe 3 years thinking that I would make a few things for her and thought I had better get going. The dress is a little short but still pretty cute.
The hat is from the Making Children's Clothes book too. It's the second one that I have made. The first one was a bit small for Maya (should have known, the kids all have big heads..) and was given to my niece at Christmas. I adjusted it a little and Maya picked out this owl fabric with an orange spot lining/reverse side. Very quick and easy to make.
