A Teeny, Tiny Princess and a Teeny Tiny Pea

I have such wonderfully creative daughters! This past Christmas, I really wanted to make Elsa a Princess and the Pea set inspired by the lovely print from Heather Ross's Far Far Away fabric line. But...I was running out of time! My darling Lucy stepped in on Christmas Eve and made the sweetest little princess doll and sewed up 20 tiny matresses while I put together a little bag to hold it all. The results were just as enchanting as I had hoped, and I had the added benefit of a delightful time spent crafting with my daughter.

The matresses and contrasting fabrics on the bag are from Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut line of fabric.

How sweet, happy sewing moments!
Speaking of fabric... the fairy fabric is Alexander Henry, Sprites of Tillbrook. Not sure if there is much around anymore. It came in a lavender colorway too, but I love the pink.
Adorable little babies you made too!
