.Baby Poppy turned 1.

At the beginning of July baby Poppy turned 1. She is the sweetest little thing. All smiles and cuddles with the most adorable wispy, blonde hair.
For her birthday I made her a little size 1 Uptown Girl - I love how the smaller sizes use hardly any fabric, perfect for some stash busting sewing!
This jacket is made using quilting cotton for both layers with some left-over quilt batting in between for snuggly warmth.
And for when it's cold, but not cold enough for a big jacket, I also made her a girl-style Hero Vest.
 Quilting cotton exterior with polar fleece lining and cute circular pockets.
Oh, and here's a shot of the other side of the Uptown Girl jacket, a little less bright and busy.

That hero vest is very cute - I really should invest in the pattern and get sewing for my kids. I love it on a a little girl - almost more than for a boy (although I have both at my house so it would be very versatile)!!

So very cute. The Uptown Girl looks so adorable on someone so tiny.
