Things are Hoppin' at the Barn

I am late making this for Blueberry's first birthday, because I could not find my pattern. It is a barn tote bag, with ten animals inside. I made one for Alvin Fernald's first birthday, eleven years ago. Here you see the bag. Standing in front are the piggy, chicken, bunny, and cow: Not to be outdone, the goat, ducky, lamb, and horse push everybody out of the way, so they can get in the picture:
What kind of farm would you have without a gingham dog and a calico cat?
I am so proud of myself. I finished Sweet Pea's first birthday present two weeks early. It is the book Little Pea, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I made a nice, soft Little Pea out of bright green flannel:

Whew. Not another birthday until July.

I am so jealous. *I* want a fabric barn with animals!!!!!

(I wouldn't mind a cute little pea, either!) ;-)

Love you, and can't wait to visit!
