Then on Thanksgiving Day, we started decorating the house. That went well, and we finished our tree on Friday.
I've been vigorously sewing ever since. However, I had already finished Shelby's Christmas dress the week before because I wanted to get it done in case something didn't go right, and I had to remake it. Oh yes, those things happen! She will wear it in her Christmas musical on Dec. 17th.
I used the Martha Pullen aline pattern, and the candy applique is from Embroidery Boutique.
It is the hard candy applique, and it worked out great with the chevron fabric.
I had to make the doll a similar dress, and my daughter will make those pictures later on. She had to find the doll some red polka dot shoes also.
To get this pose, her mommy told her if she didn't smile really good, that she couldn't go to the movie the next day, she wouldn't get anything for Christmas, and she would never get to eat again. LOL Well, I guess it worked!
I only have one of Cayden and Shelby together, but there will be more.
