ok. i am finally mailing off my toy swap items! i am behind, and forgive me jennifer. the cape was finished in time, but i wanted accessories to go with it, and then time got away from me! anyways, i made a princess cape from the longthread's tutorial. i used a gunmetal grey taffeta and a shimmery pinkish-purple lining, with vintage metallic gold ric-rac trim. i also embroidered flowers on an applique for the back. then i made a matching headband (also from the longthread, love that site!) and painted and jazzed up a wood star wand i got at hobby lobby. the lovely model is our daughter, who i will have to make a cape for because she wants to keep this one! plus, her ears are not quite as big as they appear in this photo. almost, though. my husband calls her "wingnut".

my package arrived on saturday, and it was a hit! she sent two crayon books, one with dora and one with thomas - which the older two snatched up immediately! a soft flannel jingle ball for zacharoo, and an adorable market beg and felt flower pin for me! hooray, thanks so much, jennifer! she's also a talented photographer. check out these newborns! i want another baby...
