This is the dress I made for my daughter’s 3rd birthday, the ladybug dress. Also made the ladybug cake for the birthday party, check it here: https://sweetsourmoments.com/2016/02/16/ladybug-birthday-cake/
Bought this ladybug fabric and buttons from Jo-ann almost a year ago, aren’t they cute?
Can’t believe she is three, how come?
My little one was very excited when we visited strawberry farm during strawberry picking season last May. Since then she often says “petik strawberry” which means picking strawberry and tries to describe what she saw and did in that farm with her very limited vocabulary, so cute. So I made these felt strawberries last week, named it all seasons felt strawberries… she can now have strawberry picking whenever she wants. It’s very easy to make, also a cute addition to her kitchen play. The basket was made from recycled paper brown bag, I don’t have the tutorial here but it is also very easy to make, pinterest has lots of tutorial of it.
A. Cut the red felt in half circle, to get the size of my strawberry the diameter is 3″. Cut the green felt in star shape. Some poly filling for stuffing.
B. Sew the half circle’s ends together.
C. Turn it inside out. continue to stitch around the opening.
D. Put the stuffing, pull and tighten the thread that you sew in C, secure with stitches.
The next step is to glue the Green felt onto the top to cover the opening, I use fabric glue. Done!
These are the little projects I did when I was visiting my family in Indonesia last December, 13- January, 14, handmade headbands for my little one. The red one was specially made for her 1st birthday party, the pink one was for her christening, which both took place in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Hopefully it brings you inspiration!
