Keychains with pictures

I need to buy key fob hardware next time i decided to do keychains... but they didn't turn out too bad.

Ryker's Birthday Outfit with pictures......

Ryker's birthday outfit.. I had to chop the legs in some since when i tried them on they looked like pants LOL. I didn't get the instructions for the collar and gave up and just did binding with knit fabric and i messed up on the snaps near the bottom ooops. He'll have a white t-shirt on under that shirt though.

Tracing Done.....

Yippie i got the tracing done for a dress for Alex. I also got it cut out and the patterns for the shirt and shorts for Ryker's birthday cut out just need to cut into the fabric and get it sewn up.

New Patterns...

I went to buy stuff for keychains and bought 2 patterns figured i'd try and venture away from my comfort zone of what i will trace.
