The Emily Button Project - complete!

July 26, 2012

Isabella turned four on Tuesday, and I eagerly watched her open her special present that I poured hours into! The Emily Button project is complete with Emily, Bobble the cat and Mousey the mouse.  I was happy that she tucked them up in their little box and took them off to bed with her.  She let them use her nightlight and carefully placed them up by her pillow to sleep with her.  So cute!

Mousey the mouse is about 7cm tall and I reckon (don't you love that word?!) I matched his body fabric pretty well!

I had heaps of fun trying to get the colours for the characters just right and Emily's pocket is big enough to store many a miniature treasure!  I'm especially happy with her dress/top.  I think she looks best just in her dress, but Issie wants her to wear the top and pants too - like in the book.  If you would like to see how the Emily Button Project progressed, have a look here.

So now my focus is turning toward Isabella's "Royal" party which we are hosting on Saturday.  There will be about 10 -14 children coming in their royal attire.  I am super excited about making the royal castle cake.  It will be my most ambitious cake attempt and I hope it looks okay!  Will post some photos for my next post.

As usual on a Thursday, I am linking up here.
