Grandma Lynn Busy Making Birthday Gifts
I made bags from old fabric for the kids to hold the dress up clothes my daughter asked me to get them for their birthday... The first bag is for my grand daughter and it has dolls and clowns on the print. The second bag is for my grandson. I used some fabric left over from one of my earlier quilts (the fish quilt I made for my older grand daughter, some of you might remember). GD has several cute outfits in her bag and these are the fairy wings, and two tutus, one yellow and one pink. They both have tops as well. And she has a satiny skirt to go with the tops. And some feathery things to clip on shoes. I think my grandson will enjoy this pirate's outfit. It looks hand made, by some other grandma perhaps, and very well done. I bought the pirate hat to go with. This is a cat's outfit either could wear but it is in GD's bag. The cat ears are new. This cat has a long thick tail. Her bag also has a black witches dress, with a purple and black witches hat. He also has a spider man outfit, a super man and a spider man shirt. And bunny ears! You never know when Spider Man might want to wear bunny ears! And then there are the kids art I quilted. Today I finished the last of them and added hangers. Grand daugters castle with tabs for hanging... Grand daughter's art of 2 girls with tabs for hanging. Grandson's art with hanger...This is the one I think he will decide is a Frisbee. It sails nicely. Another piece of my Grand Son's art with hanger (the back) GS same art: Front view...This is his Serrat Period. Grandma had a full day, working on all of this, making two birthday cards on the computer, wrapping the knitted sweater and hats too. Now I am ready to go to the party! Let the wild rumpus begin!
