johannas 3rd bday

today is my daughters 3rd bday! She told me she wanted a Hello Kitty party this year, so thats what she got. I made my first rainbow cake, in a square sheet pan. that was a trip! very time consuming thing, since you have to dye several bowls of cake batter, then layer them in the pan. Luckily it came out gorgeous! I used a shaped cake pan for the Hello Kitty face, which wasnt easy either. But the finnished cake looked fun. Johanna really liked it.

Everyone bought her Hello Kitty items or Barbie items. I dont think there wasnt a gift that wasnt pink!lol. But she had a great time, and so did everyone else.

part of a custom im doing for a very patient momma. She wanted a normal sized doll, for her eldest daughter, and a baby sized doll for her youngest. I have not made a "baby" type doll yet, so i had to create a new pattern. This doll has a cloth diaper, swaddeling blanket and a cap. I have never sewn a diaper before, so that was something new as well!lol, but im glad with the outcome. shes a very sweet little doll. I did her eyes sleeping, to be a little less scary for the little girl. she about 9 inches long, with a little plump belly. Overall, i really like how she turned out and i think ill make more in the future.

Skirt set previews are up! i have 3 sets stocking June 3rd, at Mainstreet congo. i have a 2T,3T, and a 4T set. I also got my friend, Dena of Lulubird Designs, in on the stocking. she did a shirt to match one of my skirts. Please check the sets out! Remember, if a set is too big for your little one now, you can buy it and put it away for them to grow into. I cant guarantee that i will make these same sets again, so you have to get them when i stock them!
