I was recently asked to make a birthday cake for the children of someone I work with..... I was really pleased when they wanted a rainbow cake as I've been seeing lots of them around blog-land and was keen to have a go at one myself.
I kept the decoration on the outside simple....
just piped buttercream and some bunting with the children's names on it.
It seems most of the sewing going on in our household lately is by the kids - I've haven't been getting much of a look in at all. I had intended to do some sewing of my own on this particular day but Miss 14 had grand plans (thanks Pinterest) which of course had no pattern..... needless to say, I spent the day drafting up a pattern for her and guiding her on how to put it all together. Totally worth it don't you think?
A Snow White apron - that looks like a dress.....
never too grown up to be a Disney princess!
She especially wanted one that went all the way around.....
Miss 14 has been busy lately with her Sock critters - they've been selling really well in the coffee shop where she works so she's had to do quite a bit of re-stocking! Unfortunately I've missed taking photos of a lot of them but I did manage to get some before they all went out the door.
3 Little Kittens
And of course a Monkey - which is how they all started!
This version of the Country Keepsakes 'Totti' doll was made by Miss 14. It was her who originally purchased the pattern but instead of making it on her own It's usually easier to make one each so that if there's anything tricky in the pattern she can just follow along with me.
