Birthday present

I'd like to share a few projects I made that were sent to a loved one for his birthday earlier this month!


Steggie was made with a pattern from One Yard Wonders - cute book! They have a bright photograph of each project listed. Plus, they supply patterns; however, this fella took me quite a while as I'd never made a doll/stuffed animal before, but luckily I had some help. I was told he slept with it the night he got it, which means... complete success.

Here's a closeup of Steggie.

I also included a hand made dinosaur birthday card, a sheet of dino stickers, and my first ever stencilled shirt.
The shirt is pretty simple, but hey, it was my first attempt, and I like it!



Here's the best part... photos of E, all the way from California, with the gifts!


And there ya have it. Even though this gift consisted of a couple crafts that *were* foreign to me, I am so glad I did them for this guy. Happy birthday, sobrino. Your Tia Sarah all the way from Texas loves you, even if she can't see you as often as she'd like!
