New Pattern (a girl & a boy) + Gift sets I've been working on.

My latest pattern is a girl & a boy. Although I was never a girl who played with barbie dolls (I preferred stuffed animals and legos.), this pattern is for quilters who enjoy dressing up and styling characters as much as kids. I came up with 3 different ways for the girls and boys to wear their hair (see the picture below), and you can also add tights to a girl. I think that these little people can easily represent a grown up couple as well as children. This pattern would be great for making a square pillow or for framing. I would love to see what other people do with this pattern. 

My sister and cousins from out of state are visiting me this weekend, so I've been busy making these little gift sets for them. These triangle garlands are so darn cute when they are hanging up. All you need is some coordinating fabrics, bias tape, and a triangle template which you can draw and cut it out of a cereal box (or a thick paper). I also learned to make the drawstring bag, and I made 5 of them in last 2 days! The drawstring bags are just the perfect touch for giving away gifts. In case you are wondering, here is a Youtube tutorial for making it (link: Simple Drawstring Bag Tutorial).

Remember my kitty coasters? This pattern is available from 'Free downloads'.
