Pip and Pop

“C’mon, sweetie. Smile! Whew, look at that droopy lip. Please? Just one picture?”

(changing tactics)
“Ok, I changed my mind. Don’t laugh whatever you do.”

“Wait, you’re losin it. Be very serious. I DON’T want you to laugh.”

“Tryin to take a picture here. NO laughing! Don’t laugh! Look mad. Frown for me.”

“Aw, man! You laughed.”
My youngest’s sixth birthday was celebrated in style over the weekend with plenty of pizza, ice cream cake and family. I managed to finish her birthday outfit and her Pip and Pop otter softies in time for the festivities. More about the pattern for her outfit in another post.

Pip and Pop came together fairly easily after a trial run with a cheap piece of terry cloth I had laying around. I had to make some adjustments for the impossible (luxurious) thickness of the purple towel I was using for the final products. It was so thick I couldn’t turn the arms or legs so I had to interlock them on the edges, but with the purple thread and the fuzzy terry cloth you really can’t tell.

I have several handmade things lined up that I’d like to share, but I’m still in the middle of May’s Special Occasion Landslide, so this week is packed. I’ll have to wait until next week sometime to get back in the blog saddle.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments checking on me and my back! Physical therapy is going really well, and making a huge difference. I’m doing great, and so thankful to God.
