Retro Basket

Hello Little Birdie,
As you know I am a lover of all things cane, especially baskets.
Today I completed a new top for a lovely round basket with a lid. I have had this basket for as long as I can remember, I think that it was my mum's. It had some old plastic embroidered flowers on top that were falling to pieces. I took these off, used the existing orange trim and added a padded fabric top.
I am quite pleased with the results. Now I just have to decide what to store in it.

Dolls Clothes

Hello Little Birdie,
Last weekend I completed some dolls clothes. I did not make all the clothes in the bellow picture only the pink hat, pink scarf and pink pants. These are the most beautiful dolls for children. They are from Windmill. I was most pleased with how the pants turned out. I made them by making two rectangles and then sewing them up like pants with some elastic woven into the waist to keep them on.
Thank-you for the advice about taking photos for the blog, I am now going to attempt to take the photos in natural light.
