On the First Day of Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone - now I can post about my Christmas creations and since it is the first day of Christmas today is . . .

A bird on the pocket of a dress

I made this for my grand daughter, Shannon who is almost 2. She is wearing a size 3 in RTW but I did a 2 in the pattern which is McCalls. I appliqued the bird on the pocket with a design from Embroidery Library. The jumper is lined and red piping is along the hem. It was easy and it turned out pretty cute, I had fallen in love with the bird print corduroy- it called to me and said "you need to buy me". I got a black turtleneck at Target and did a red lettuce hem at the neck.

I just hope it fits.
