The party is on and a giveaway too !


The party is on ! I have cupcakes for Joy and caramel slice for Vikki and now you all just need a Little Party Frock . My new pattern Little Party Frock is going to be released at the end of the week and it will be in my shop then . These frocks are so quick and easy to make and are really a lot of fun .
 My daughter had her birthday party last week and I made a heap of these and gave them to the little girls instead of lolly bags , what a hit they were . I know, bad mother using her children for market research .....  Anyway as usual Barbie has been causing problems taking off with all the pretty frocks , they are just her size 7" but the tops are stitched up so they won't go over her head . I'll forgive her afterall she is plastic and can't really understand the term For Decorative Use Only Der !
 If you would like to win a pattern for Little Party Frock just leave a comment , that's it !
 To teach Barbie a lesson while she was mucking around I nicked all her coathangers and one will be included in each pattern .

Those little party frocks are absolutely adorable! These would be fun to make for my daughter for when she has a birthday party when she's a little older. She's only 3 1/2 right now. But the little frocks are just darling. Please enter me in your giveaway! Blessings ~ Andrea

Anita said...

Clare, is your Barbie a typical girl and has to get changed every 5 minutes. I always had to when I was young.....changed my ways now that I have to do my own washing!!! kind regards, Anita. P.S. The dresses are lovely.
