We decided to make the first one but add a gathered flounce to the bottom of the dress. I have the jacket almost done and I realized I messed up just below the collar. I have to rip it out and resew it. I am almost done with the dress.
She chose these fabrics. A green shimmery fabric with glitter for the dress. A red background with penguins and a saying "Jump For Joy". They are nice fabrics!
Isn't it strange some people make
You feel so tired inside,
Your thoughts begin to shrivel up
Like leaves all brown and dried!
But when you're with some other ones,
It's strange still to find
Your thoughts as thick as fireflies
All shiny in your mind!

Create a flock of these bright votive holders: they're a great project for kids and, filled with battery-operated tea lights, a luminous addition to your table.
1 1/4-inch wooden doll head (available at craft stores)
Small glass bubble votive holder (ours is 4 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches high)
Time needed: About 2 to 3 Hours
1. Apply a dab of hot glue from a glue gun to the wooden doll head. Then adhere the head to the votive holder.
4. Cut a beak from a double layer of yellow tissue and affix it with tacky glue. Add two beads for eyes. Cut a long oval of red tissue, twist one end, and affix it as a wattle. Allow the turkey to dry.
