All About Me

Hey guys! I decided it's probably time me to tell you more about me.
My name is Piper Nicole Maxwell, and I'm 10 years old. I'm in Miss Parker's 5th grade class at Westland Elementary School. I love school, especially creative writing! I also love to read, my favorite book is The Secret Garden. I take ballet class two times a week, although my mom says I never stop dancing really - on the sidewalk, in the kitchen, anywhere! I cannot wait until summer, I love being outside and going camping. I'm also extremely talented at climbing trees and doing flips on the trampoline! My favorite color is blue, and my favorite food is pizza!

Yesterday I saw some pictures of the new custom tees at American Girl Place New York, and I wanted one so bad - they are so cute! But of course, we don't live anywhere near AGPNY. So instead I made my own! I love animals, so I decided to put an owl on my shirt. I was a little worried at first, because I thought appliques were for babies, but I love how it turned out! I chose all the fabrics from my person's big stack of scraps - she said that makes her feel better about her terrible habit of hanging on to every fabric scrap. It's really cold and gray outside, so we couldn't get a very good picture. Hopefully we can get a better one later on.
Here's a close-up of the owl -


  1. Piper, I love your shirt! I think you should come over to meet Liberty Belle - does your person make clothes for a commission? Once the rest of my girls meet you, they'll want clothes as cute as yours and I don't think I'm near as talented!

  2. It was nice getting to know you better, Piper!
    I love your shirt, the owl is so cute!!! :-)


  3. I disagree with "we couldn't get a very good picture." That is great! Spencer wants to buy 23# now, of course.....

  6. You are so pretty! Your person is really good at applique. The owl looks slightly crazy in a cute way :D and the detail is amazing!

    It was nice to get to know you better! :D

  7. Piper, that is such a gorgeous applique! My person is now itching to get out the sewing machine and make a top for every AG doll that she knows!

  8. Piper, that shirt is absolutely adorable! I want one for myself now that I saw yours! The owl on the shirt is so cute!

  9. It's nice getting to know you, Piper! You sound a lot like me...I love reading. Your shirt is adorable. :)
