Happy Birthday, Trixie!

The cake is now cooling and waiting for frosting. All of which will be green per the birthday girl's request. (Note the food coloring to the right. Also note the box of cake mix. This is how you know I'm just a wannabe craft blogger. No cakes from scratch around this house.)

Tonight she'll be opening these:

A new dress for her sock monkey. (All the fabrics are from Moda's Five Funky Monkeys line.) Pattern was improvised, bias tape was thrifted.

And since this is for Trixie, a boo-boo pack. It's a small rice warmer(like I made in a previous post) that has a removable cover. Apparently, these can be frozen to comfort small bumps. We get a lot of those around here.

Some jammies made with leftover fabric from her Christmas quilt. Grandma gave her the slippers.

(Scroll down for the rest. I've yet to figure out how to get more than 4 photos in a post.)

Those are fabulous. AJ recently acquired his first sock monkey and even at the ripe old age of 7, he carries it everywhere. He would love these. [By the way, I'm the wife of Uncle Monkey's friend who discovered you here a while ago. I'm not sure I ever gave you my own blog address, which is linked below]. Sorry about the cryptical protection of my pseudonym!

Happy birthday, Trixie! She is a lucky girl to get so many fabulous HANDMADE gifts! (Um, yeah, I think that excuses you from making a from-scratch cake! Holy cow!)
