A Few Modeling Moments.

First up is the bubble I just posted last week here. I'm not sure what she is doing with the leg there, but all of the photos where she isn't doing that, turned out blurry. Isn't that always the case? I love the way it fits. I made it longer in the stride length intentionally so it would "bubble" out. She is a clothes horse! When she tries on something new, she doesn't want to take it off. Ignore the wrinkles, it came straight from the suitcase.

Next up is the birthday dress posted here. Also love the fit on this one. Not the best photo.

The only photo of the robot shirts. LG is wearing Children's Corner Mamie with Frannie bloomers a dear friend made for her.

In other news, all of the kids except LG started school. Always a big day. I love how clean and crisp all of their uniforms look with their fresh haircuts and clean faces. It won't take long for that image to change. Especially those boys.

This has got to be one of my favorite photos from the first days of school. Some little man was more interested in making faces at himself in the shiny mail slot. Too cute. If only they would stay little like this forever.

I am off to plan little pink daygowns. I have not sewn one thing for the new baby yet. Time to remedy that!

Just Playin'

Sometimes I do get to just play. I had run across a button on bubble a few months ago that I just fell in love with. I am not usually adverse to plunking' down my money but this time I just wanted to see if I could re-create it. Its not like there isn't a closet full of fabric needing to be sewn. This is my take on that button on bubble.

I also have friends with way better memories than I possess She remember that in this old issue of Sew Beautiful magazine there is a Button on Dress by Cheryl Davidson. I used that for my bib.

For the bottom bubble portion I adapted Children's Corner Wright.

I am pleased with how it turned out. I am anxious to see it on Little Girl. It is a size 2.

In retrospect  I should have used smaller buttons up the back but since it is a play bubble made from easy care poly/cotton skip dent by Spechler-Vogel and broadcloth I am okay with it. Sadly the skip dent no longer comes in colors. Since the skip dent is very sheer, I lined the bubble portion with batiste to prevent her mickey mouse diaper from peeking through.

The machine embroidery I showed you last week came from SWAK Embroidery. It is called "Following Mama" there are many other designs in the set I plan to use in the future.

So if you see something you like, look through your pattern stash and see if you can replicate it. I'll let you know how it fits. Thank goodness, Little Girl lives in a warm climate and wear it for a few months yet.

I couldn't leave the others out, so the embroidery machine to the rescue. Not always a faster option. The apple for our big First Grader came from Creative Appliqué on Etsy. The boys will get this friendly robot also on Etsy from Ladder Hill Designs.
