Sew Sew Fun

 I don't think I have shared with you the baby gifts I had been making for the new little someone special in my life.  It is hard when people you love read your blog.  You can not divulge any secrets when the gifts are going to be for them!   I loved this fabric.  So retro and 1970's.  My era.  :)
 This is the little tag I stitched for the back for this one.  Her sweet name.
 Blanket number two says, " Once upon a time there was a beautiful little princess and she lived in an enchanted castle."  I chose this fabric because every little girl is a princess.  Right? 
 Here is the tag I stitched for this one.
  My youngest daughter thought we should make a little doll for her as well.  She picked out all the fabric for it.  Here are all her parts laying out to be put together.  The free pattern can be found here.
All finished.  And we thought she needed a little apron as well.  And a bow in her hair.
These little toys ended up in my cart one day while shopping.  Little salt shaker rattle and measuring spoons.  How cute is that?  Because every princess needs cute kitchen things in her castle.  (Wink!)

Those blankets and doll are so precious! Once again, I love your hand embroidery. That just makes it even more special! And I don't think I could resist those cute toys either!! What fun:)

So creative Shann, what wonderful colors for a little "dolly" like her, I am sure her Mom will love everything you made, not only because it is so special, but because it comes from you.

Thanks for sharing!
