home-made lolly bags and more for Lizzy's birthday

Lizzy turned 11 last Friday. It's hard to believe our beautiful little girl is getting so big!

She enjoyed making and decorating her own cake, and swapping around the letter candles so that they said things like "hippy barthday" - she thought this would be particularly appropriate for her dad, who loves baths!

She spent many hours during her school holidays sewing felt lolly bags for her friends.

Aren't they gorgeous?!

I took her and 3 of her friends to Luna Park

where she went on all the scariest rides without a trace of jelly belly

even if it meant going alone and completely upside down! (That's her on the left.)

Happy birthday, dear Lizzy ...

... until next year.

The patterns for the felt lolly bags were from The Usborne Big Book of Fairy Things to Make and Do.

Great cake.

Matilda and Lizzy would have fun together. Matilda makes a mean Princess Torte, my birthday cake of choice.
