Our gorgeous darling little Emily turned one year old today.
We met with my Mum and Dad, sister and Emily's cousins yesterday for a picnic at the lovely Collingwood children's farm. I quickly snapped some pics of Emily in her new birthday dress before it got covered in dirt, orange juice and cake.
Here is her birthday dress washed and ironed today. I used my pattern again - using size 1 for Emily. The pockets and sleeves I printed myself with cut up apple and fabric paint on calico. In training for Leslie Keating's handprinted fabric swap!
I started this softie a few months ago after being inspired by this gorgeous one I found on pinterest. He sat for a while in my 'to do' bag and finally was finished a few days ago for little Emily.
I made the pattern myself. He is made from leftovers from Isabella's winter jacket. I knitted the little scarf from lefover 3 ply wool from Isabella's first ever little bonnet.
I made Emily a little long sleeve top from some sweet jersey I picked up at Spotlight. I havent' decided if it's too 'pjamarish' or not!
Love my twin stretch needle for stretch edging.
Emily getting acquainted with her new friend!
Happy Birthday sweet darling!! Emily is on track for walking at my sister's wedding - took her first steps yesterday!
Linking up here for the first time.
