Now, however, things are a little different I have girls and nieces and I am happy to make sure these girls never want for ruffles. My big brother is still cool, but I've learned that ruffles make anything sweet and pretty and oh so girly!
This is a little surprise for just one of those sweet, pretty little girls and I'm having lots of fun (mixed with a bit of swearing at breaking threads) making these ruffled treats for her. I can't wait to show you the finished product. In the meantime check out these ruffles I just found from Candace at Sparkle Power, I'm definitely gonna have to whip up a few of those before it gets too cold.
The button opens to reveal a snap pocket and a lace up and tie pocket. Then there is a zipper pouch on top, just like a real purse and the strap is held together with a belt buckle. Now she has her very own place for her very own treasures and she can button. . .
lace and tie, or untie. . .
snap, unsnap and stuff. . .
zip, unzip and zip some more (she loves zippers)
and loop a belt to her hearts content.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Let me know what you think of it.
There was dinosaur drawing by my 4 year old. I do love this boys monsters, they are the best.
Coloring with brand new markers while I tried not to worry about the mess they were making.
And as expected an elaborately planned project including sewing and cutting,
It actually came together much easier than I expected, except that button hole right there. The button is bigger than my button hole maker can go so I had to do two and cut through the overlapping end so it's a little messy looking. Other than that I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out.
It has two layers which I had never done before and turned out really cute! The slippery flowing fabric in my daughters current favorite color combo, light blue/teal and dark brown, were just perfect for this super girly skirt.
A super cute skirt, a little more grown up feeling than her others, but with plenty of little girl twirl action. Thank you Aunt Rie and Uncky Tom.
