I just finished a special order! I made this smock and cape set for my friend's mother to give to her granddaughter as a Christmas gift. Nana is a hairdresser and bought a salon chair for her 3 year old granddaughter. She asked if I could make her an apron and a cape for her doll to wear. The apron is from Bend the Rules Sewing and it was so easy to sew :) The cape I just made free-hand. Here is a close up of the fabric, which I got at Joann's:
I just love how this little set came out and I hope that my friend's mother and her granddaughter love it too!

One of my friends asked if I could make a Mr. Hungry toy for her nephew. If you don't know, Mr. Hungry is from the Weight Watchers commercials, you can see him here. I couldn't find orange fur, so I went with fleece. I think he came out pretty cute :) I had a lot of fun putting him together. He's a little wonky, one of his arms is longer than the other, but that's because I drew him freehand and besides, monsters aren't supposed to be perfect!
