Gifts and girls

I did manage to get pics of a few more gifts I made over the Christmas break so thought I'd share them.

Firstly a couple of twirly skirts with matching tops for two little girls

and a Michael Miller retro guitars appliqued 'T' for their brother.

Then I thought I'd try out a tutorial that Kylie found here to make tissue covers so whipped up a couple for my mum and sister. They were super-easy and a great way to use up small pieces of fabric.

And just because I couldn't resist, here's a shot of the girls enjoying their newest found hair joy - pigtails!

You have such an eye for what will work well as an applique Karen - they all look fab. I really, really love the guitar shirt.

Those outfits look fantastic! And I have to second the comment on the guitar shirt - actually I would like to wear one of those myself!!

I LOVE pigtails - the girls look so cute! And I also think the guitar shirt is a fab t-shirt idea for a boy - I always enjoy seeing your appliqued tops - very professional and just plain gorgeous!

Awwwwww, how sweet are those pigtails and that hug?:)

Katherine said...

What sweetie pies! Love their pigtails.

Wow! What lovely clothes you've been making for your girls. Must say I also love the guitar applique. Too cool!
