thursday = embroidery

I'm very excited to share a recently finished project today! I mentioned on Monday that I went to a birthday party for a one-year-old last weekend and today I'm going to show one of the handmade gifts I made him:






after I posted the girl paper doll, I realized I didn't really explain that the girl/boy is paper but all the clothes are embroidered fabric.

next thursday I'll share the other piece I made, which is my favorite of the two because it involves a dressed animal & there's nothing cuter {I think} than animals wearing clothes!

And finally I'd like to thank the make & take blog for making doe-c-doe their blog of the week!

whew - that was a long post! I better go take a nap...
