Birthday Sewing...


The girls turned 4 today so I have been busy with some birthday sewing.

Hobby horses which have been named Peoples & Billy. I used this pattern here with just a few slight variations as my hand sewing is terrible. As a result everything was done on the machine. The horses were a big hit with the girls.


And birthday Kimonos from the habitual pattern once again but I made the binding wider, lengthened the sleeves and shortened the width on the front panels as the girls are quiet small across the chest. I am really happy with how they turned out.
