Birthday things

My Not-so-much-a Baby is having a birthday at the end of the month. We won’t be buying a lot of stuff this year, so I’ve been making things.

Like this:

It’s from Erika Devine‘s pattern. The only thing I don’t like about it is it won’t stand up easily. If I decide to fulfill the request for a “Peashooter Army”, I think I might put some pipe cleaners or wire into the stem and/or the leaves. Which might help, but I’ve never done anything like that before. Whee.

There might also be a birthday sweater, but since I’m working on her Valentine’s Dance dress this week, I wouldn’t be counting on one. Might be more like a Family Day sweater…
