Abby Caddaby

My niece, Audrey, is about to turn 1 years old this month. I cannot believe it! I felt like I just watched her birth. My sister decided to throw her an Abby Caddaby Birthday Party. For those of you without children, it's a character from Sesame Street (she was not around when we were little). Anyway, Audrey loves Abby Caddaby and has a doll of her. She even says "Abby."

While shopping for apron fabric I ran across some material that had Abby on it and of course had to buy it to make something for my little Bunny. I decided to make her party dress. I have always wanted to make a pillow case dress but have just never gotten around to it. My grandma helped me since this was my first, but I thought it turned out cute and now I know how to do it. By the way, they are SUPER easy!!! I plan to make many more. So here is Audrey's Birthday Party outfit. Since it is so cold, she will wear long sleeves and leggings under it. I can't wait to see her in it.

Oh by the way, I have managed to break my sewing machine somehow and I am dying to finish the last stitch on the cutest apron that will be up for sale on the Apple Pie Aprons blog next week. Hopefully Maw can come to my rescue and figure out what I did to break it.
