Tomorrow is ds2's friend's birthday party. Here is what I made for her:this pattern to crochet her cape and basket. Then I made a simple sock dress for her. I have been having a lot of fun making doll cakes, so I made her a rainbow doll cake. I used foam and white puff paint to make it. Then I made 2 origami boxes, one for the cake and one to hold all of these items.
KnitWit: 20 fun projects for beginners and seasoned knitters" by Katie Boyette. So I have been working hard to make her a ninja in time for her party. I was able to finish it Friday night while watching a movie. There was a lot of sewing involved. I choice to only use black thread around all of the felt pieces instead of matching the thread to the felt. I felt that it made it pop, like a cartoon character. I also used tacky glue to get the felt to stick / stay in place while I did a blanket stitch around all of the pieces.
The birthday party was today, and the birthday girl liked all of her presents.
