a birthday gift

Lydia's birthday was a little over a week ago. As you can imagine, it's hard to know what to give to daughters who have need of nothing. But usually, I try to make at least one thing for each birthday and Christmas.

I've had an idea for some time for a Gingham Dog and Calico Cat, from the poem The Duel by Eugene Field. And yes, I know it's been done. But I wanted to do my version. I had these patterns by Bit of Whimsy Dolls, Violet Kitty and Peter Puppy, and thought I'd use them. I thought they turned out nice, but more importantly, Lydia likes them!
