Sarah’s and Matt’s birthday

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted. Since then we’ve had two birthdays. Sarah got her present early from me (1940s dress) and Laura added to it by knitting this beautiful hat for her

And I made my first sweater! I’m so happy! It was not as hard as I had thought it would be and it was came out very good

Sarah’s been photo bing lately :)
Matthew said he wanted a police uniform. So I decided to make him one for his birthday.

James tried it on.
I used this shirt pattern and altered it (longer sleeves, pockets etc.)

And this pants pattern altering it so that there was a waistband instead of elastic and adding pockets.

The tie pattern is made by me and was really easy.
Made to look like this

And then I helped Hannah make Matthew a hobbit costume and she did a very good job.

And Matthew bought sting to go with it (sting is the sword that Bilbo found in the trolls cave in The Hobbit. In The Lord of the Rings, while Bilbo is living in Rivendell he gives Sting to Frodo when he comes and Frodo has it for the rest of the book. And at the end of the book when Frodo is with Bilbo again it says ‘and Bilbo gave Frodo sting again, forgetting that he already had.’ He was 131 years old though :) )

I will be posting a tutorial on how to make the cloak soon :)

And last one for now,
About a year ago I found this tutorial on how to make a beautiful adorable dress for little girls.
http://sewcraftcreate.com/2010/08/made-by-you-wednesday-giveaway/
I bought the ribbon but never had the perfect fabric and so I forgot about it. Then yesterday I remembered and made on for faith. It’s adorable. It’s not as easy as the pillowcase dress I did recently or as quick but I still love it and would make it again.

She was asking me all day ‘are you making my dress?’

I guess that about catches me up on pictures and etc. Laura’s birthday is coming up and I’ve almost got her present finished, so there will be pictures :D until then,
