Happy Birthday Charlotte!

Don't tell Charlotte that I made her
a wee jingle Scottie for her birthday.
I haven't given it to her yet, so hush!

Thanks to All Sorts for the pattern and inspiration!
And to Charlotte for her love of sewing!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you,
happy birthday dear Charlotte, happy birthday to you!!!!!

Austin Bound Plushies

Last week I "re-met" and "first-met" some really remarkable folks - a long-lost college classmate and her family. My friend and her mate are amazingly accomplished designers and entrepreneurs and their two year old twins are - well - they are amazing two year old twins! (For those of you who don't know me well I am rapidly approaching a half century - so do the math about having the twins!). I don't know how they manage it all!!

Anyway -what a pleasure to get reacquainted and acquainted! Below are a couple of pics of the plushies I made for the kids! Thanks for a terrific time in Austin!

All the materials are from my stash bins (hooray for emptying out my stash bins!). I used fleece for the patterned bodies and felt for the eyes and bellies. I embedded bells in the fiberfill so the plushie can jiggle for Zelda!



Tiny smiles for the tiny twins! Love you guys!

Thanks again Austin!
