A gift for Karlie:

My friend Rebecca's daughter turns seven on Tuesday. She is such a girly, girl. I wanted to make her something cute. So, I made the Raggedy Ann shirt. It's a white tee with an embroidered face and I sewed the ribbon hair on. Then, the tee needed a pair of coordinating jeans. Thus, the ruffles were added. This was a JOB. I love the way it turned out though. Then, to give her a few more options to wear with the gingham ruffled jeans, I got another white tee and sewed four buttons on. I made "patches" that she can change out just by unbuttoning them. A "K" patch for Karlie, a candy cane for Christmas, a heart for Valentine's Day, and cherries for any time. I stumbled across the cute matching cherry necklace and ring so I HAD to include those too! I still have to sew a belt/sash for the jeans. That's on the to-do list for tomorrow!I hope she likes her gift!!
