Kirsten's accessories are a success!

Bis Sister's birthday was Saturday. We had a rather subdued celebration because both the hubs and I have been really sick. Despite my illness, I was able to complete all the projects I'd planned. I'll be featuring them this week. First, are the accessories I made for the Kirsten doll:

Using the patterns I told you about HERE, I made the sunbonnet and spoon bag.  I made my own little pattern to make the apron, using a gathered rectangle shaped piece of fabric and a bias tape for the ties.  The amber heart necklace was put together with part of an old bracelet of mine, dark brown skinny satin ribbon and simple necklace findings. 

Saturday, Kirsten got to listen to her story as Sis got out the first book and reread it.  Last night for bed, Sis got Kirsten ready for bed in her nightgown, and was excited to have some new ways to play with her treasured friend.

It's nice to be home!
