Birthday sewing

I'm using the new format for blogger for posting and still figuring things out. Don't know why the pictures are different sizes.
The itty bitty dress (3T version) was made for my great niece's 4th birthday. She's in preschool now so I thought the fabric was appropriate.
I drew a cat on black and embroidered it to look like a chalkboard drawing. Really quick and fun!
Since I had some fabric remnants I also made my first pencil roll. Of course, not reading directions, I just looked at some pictures and measured the pencils. The pockets are too short or too big but the pencils fall out easily. I need to do that better.
This is the rolled up view. A button and hair elastic are the easiest options for little fingers to close.
 The party was so fun! The theme was fairies and the little girls had wings and beautiful headbands. The little boys had wands (bubbles) or they could be swords. There were butterflies everywhere in the garden and little fairies and animals for the kids to find. I'll have to post a picture of Georgia and Gabe on flickr or here when I get one. I forgot my camera so my niece took some pics for me. 
It's raining here again today which is okay since I have so much to do at home. Finishing another dress for someone and doing info books for our local woman's club. Really late this year with the inside, the outside is almost done thanks to my Cricut! Y'all have a good day!!

Tweakings aside, I love your pressies! I'd happily turn three in your neck of the woods...
