It All Started With a Skirt

It's been a couple of months now since I've moved into my new home, and I'm still trying to set up my sewing room so that I can just walk in and sew.  Needless to say, it's not quite at that stage right now!

However, I had a birthday party to go to for a special friend turning one-year old and wanted to make her a little something.  It all started with this skirt.

I had her Mom measure her waist and then I took out some cute coordinating fabric that I had in my stash to make her the skirt.  I went out and bought some pink rick-rack to add to the bottom to make it even more girly.

Then I went in the stamping room to make a card to match.  To my surprise, I actually found designer paper that matched the skirt!  It was paper from Heidi Grace designs that had purchased it a few years ago and have never used.  I added the cute little owl stamp (because her party theme was owls) and love how it matches the skirt.  :)

Then while browsing on Pinterest, I came across some cute little owl stuffed toys and decided to make a couple of them to match, too!  The original idea came from CakeShop Craft, and I modified it so that a little child can play with them with no buttons that can come off.

Here's the whole set.  What do you think?

Now just to wrap it up and get it off to my little friend.  :)
