Crafty Day Update

So, after much shopping and shlepping through the rain, I was able to buy some material for Z's party dress.  Here's what I've gotten done so far (including cute headband that took 5 seconds to make):

 I traced the pattern from another dress of hers that fits well; but I'm not sure how I'm going to fix the "very small neck hole" issue- either snaps, a zipper, or scissors+safety pins.  It's a Gatsby party though, not a punk rock one, so the last one might be out. She was kind of scared to try it on last night (too much sparkle?  Is there such a thing?) so we'll see how this week goes!
Then I turned some pyjamas of hers that don't fit any more into a super cute fleece dress.

She always likes the kitty on the back.

 And lastly...

Introducing... Sally the Chipmunk!

I started working on Sally during Christmas Crafting Mania(R), but since she really wasn't a present for anyone, she has been patiently waiting to get finished.

Of course Zephyr instantly loved her and rubbed her on her face, so we'll see if she stays here or ends up in my future Etsy shop.  It really didn't take too long to make (and her tail is flexible!) so I'm sure I could bust out another one pretty quickly.
