My little friend Helen turned 3 today & there was a fairy party.
Every good fairy party needs a toadstool cake which Helen's clever mum Megs made. It tasted as good as it looks too though the resulting sugar rush in the 5s & under was quite loud for 10 minutes or so.
Here's my favourite fairy, the birthday girl, with her present I made her, an owl bag. It goes quite well with her fairy tutu.
The pattern is called In Cahoots from my favourite US magazine - Quilts and More, designed by Terry Atkinson. It is quilt as you go which makes for a nice & simple zip insertion.
It was my first time at cutting binding on the bias for curves too but doesn't that work a treat. My first effort I cut straight & once I got under my daylight lamp pinning realised that the fabric was red & not bright pink. Maybe that is why not everyone quilts at 11pm regularly like me.
It was a very happy day. I found out that as I sneak up on the age of 46, that my perfect man is one aged just over 5 months. Ahhh the cuddles were sublime!
Thank you Megsie for letting me showcase your gorgeous youngest daughter here & for a great party.
