Audrey's Birthday Presents

Audrey will be two on Easter! It's a good thing I am actually ahead of the game for once!

Now hopefully the last need-to-do for a while. . . Audrey's birthday present.

So what do you get for the little girl who has everything?  She already has many dolls and a stoller and a kitchen and grocery cart.  Then it occured to me to make her accessories for her dolls.  One of the many blogs that I follow made this neat set of baby doll items, so I loosely followed her projects.

First I made a bassinett 

this went together so quickly that I decided to make more stuff!

Then I made a changing pad, wipes,  and 6 diapers.  

But these accessories didn't really go with a bassinett, so I decided to make a diaper bag.

The diaper bag looks so amazing!  I am thinking about making purses for myself since my skills are improving.

All set up to change baby's diaper

I can't wait to give these to Audrey!  I think she's going to get a lot out of them!

Best of all. . . this project cost me nothing, as I had all of the supplies on hand.  And it only took me two days to complete!

Thanks again, mom!  I love sewing!  

* On the down side, though, the more I sew, the more I want a new sewing machine.  Luckily, they all look like crap to me.  I want something heavy duty that isn't going to crap out on me in a year.
