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.


  1. What a darling bubble. I know what you mean about the Mickey Mouse diapers!

  2. I love this! Thank you for sharing.

  3. I saw this one too and loved it. I love everything about yours - the colors, the embroidery, the bib - everything. :)
