Birthday gift for my little niece

Next weekend, she gets two years old.
So I made some gifts for her.
The one is a skirt.
Skirt for my little niece
It was easy to make but I should have sewn long ruffle.

I also made small hair clips with the same fabrics.
They are also easy. I made only two yo-yos, and put covered button on each.

I also made four bibs with the Yukata fabric what I got in the Yokohama quilt week(My last post).

I washed them after I finished them.

And I realized the Yukata fabric lose color so much. The water turned blue soon. I washed them twice, and the back fabric got blue...

At first, I planned to list them on my shop, but I cannot sell them. So they all are for my niece now.

I found the pattern for the skirt here.
I'm sorry but it's in Japanese only.

Have a good day (* v *)!!!!

Your niece is a very lucky girl, with an aunt like you!

greetingarts said...

Everything is lovely, I'm so sorry about that fabric bleeding in the wash! There's a product here in the US that's called Carbona Dye Grabber. You put it in the wash with your fabrics, and it will pull out all the loose dye so that it doesn't go onto any other fabric. It really works remarkably well, maybe you can find that in Japan? Or, I think they sell on

The bibs still look pretty! It is lovely fabric.

helena said...

It's so pretty. I had one with the some coulours when i was young ( about 35 years ago!!!)

Everything is beautiful, as always, Mai. It still amazes me that you sew all these exquisite things by hand.
