First, I made her this scottie dog stuffed animal:
I used this pattern from Denyse Schmidt, and a bunch of scraps, mostly Amy Butler and Heather Bailey. This puppy turned out to be a lot harder to make than I imagined - the patchwork was fine, but attaching the pink strip in the middle was quite the task at the corners.
I also made her a crayon roll:
So all together, she got puppies and rainbows:
Luckily, my hard work paid off, because she loved them! After she opened her puppy, she wanted to take a break from present opening and just snuggle it. Then later, when she opened the crayon roll, she wanted to color right away. My brother & sister in law had never seen a crayon roll before, and thought it was the coolest idea. Now, if only I could take credit for that one... haha.
She's got her arm around that puppy. Oh! In the background you can see the bacon & eggs I made her for Christmas, too!
Happy Birthday, Frankie! I hope you enjoy your gifts as much as I enjoyed making them for you!
