Unicorn Cape

Evie has very specific requests sometimes. In this case she ordered a unicorn costume - it had to be pink and purple with wings that are shiney but not really there (what??!!!) and a twirly purple horn. Sometimes i think she overestimates my sewing abilities....
But who could resist this face;

It's basically a hood with ears and mane attached to a gathered semi-circle for the wings, with a tail stuck at the end.

But i think she likes it

Princess and the Pea Playset

In an attempt to get Evie more interested in reading and books in general, i made her a storysack and as it was for Evie of course it had to be princessy! I made this princess and the pea playset so she could act out the story. I based it on the illustrations from this version. It all packs away into the little lunchbox which doubles as the front of the castle;

Inside is the bed, complete with a pea on the sheet

And of course, LOTS of matresses!

And they all lived happily ever after....
