Little Ellie's first birthday

We spent this Saturday afternoon celebrating my niece Ellie's first birthday. It was the best kids birthday party I have been to in a long time. Probably because it had a visit from the ice cream truck

AND cupcakes from Cupcake Royale ! I'm hoping to secure both for my next birthday!


I made a little onesie dress and matching doll for the birthday girl.

I just took a onesie, cut 4 inch strips of coordinating fabric, ruffled it, and sewed it on. I was definitly inspired by this dress over at Sumo's Sweet Stuff.
What little girl doesn't need a matching black apple doll to go with it?
Happy birthday Ellie! Thanks for the ice cream!

I'm linking up to some of these parties.
