On a princess theme I had bought this book:
I'd seen several Princess and the pea sets like this one by Soule Mama and here on etsy and here. So a few late night sewing missions ( actually quite a few late nights) and you can now meet the Princess:
She's a little bit special - all her limbs are different sizes - I scaled her down so she could be easily transported but it made her very fiddley to sew. She is loosely based on mmmcrafts little red pattern here, as well as these other little dolls here also on mmmcrafts which I scaled down ( she is 25cm tall) and I gave her long black hair like she has in the book
Every Princess needs day wear, so she has a little pink skirt
And, of course, a long white nightgown
Then there is the dreaded pea!
( complete with a little pocket to keep it safe)
and 12 mattresses
Fine cotton sheets and a pillow
and lastly, no Princess could try to sleep without a pretty quilt
Now you thought it ended here - but NO, my brain had gone into overdrive so
I made a bag to cart the whole lot around in
Complete with some pretty labels I purchased on etsy
I think the French one says something like " you are someone very special to me"
My intention had been a small set that could be taken anywhere but because the only batting I could buy was almost an inch thick it's rather a lot larger than I planned - not that this stopped Georgie taking her out but it's not a child sized little shoulder bag more a hug in your arms full load. I'm really happy with this set , especially as it's so popular with Georgie - all that effort was definately worthwhile.
