Curious Georgie...

Michael and I had fun working together on a creative project this weekend!  Our little niece Georgie, was having her first birthday party on Saturday.  Michael came home with a "Curious George" doll on Friday, and we turned him into a Curious Georgie!

Here's how he looked before:

And here's what we did...

I made the bow and embroidered the "i" on George; but Michael and I worked together to add the lace to the bottom of her shirt.  The thing that made it difficult was - the shirt doesn't come off the doll!   It's sewn right on, so we had to stretch in all kinds of weird ways to get the machine to stitch the lace all the way around.  You should have seen us trying to keep the shirt straight as we fed it through the sewing machine! Ha.  It was super fun tho, and we heard from Michael's sister (Georgie's mom) that she likes it!  Yeayyy!

Not bad for two non-sewers, eh?  We were pretty proud of ourselves!  :0) 

I hope your weekend is going well.  Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!

Thanks so much for visiting and for your kind comments.  They truly brighten my day!!!
