Little Shoes for Giselle

My cousin Sharon was one of the many people to complain about not being able to find cute little shoes for bubs under 9 months. was only fair that her little bub Giselle get some of my first little tootsy creations.  These turned out much nicer than Gracey's as I have found a more professional way to sew the panels together.  I also made Giselle a little beanie/hair clip...just to complete the ensemble.

Little Mary Jane Shoes....or as I like to call these red ones...Dorothy Shoes!

So many of my friends complain about how hard it is to find small cute little girl shoes.  After some net surfing I found a pattern to make a similar pair of shoes to these and adapted the pattern to suit my tastes.  This is what I came up with:

They were really easy to make and took very little time.  All done in one night!

Gracey's 1st Birthday Parties...

Just a very quick post to show you some of the decorative highlights of Gracey's first birthday celebrations...yes there was 2.  One for our Brisbane connection of friends and family and the other for our Maryborough friends and family. It was a busy seven days with lots of prep and baking but I got through it, with the addition of some rather large black circles under my eyes.
For G's 2 parties I stuck with a red and pink butterfly theme.  I just changed the cake idea for each.  Bettina Butterfly was so gorgeous with her 2 big eyes...she was almost too cute to cut up and eat. I also made G 2 birthday outfits.  The butterfly princess skirt and fascinator plus a little pinafore dress for party playtime.
