Owl Bags

I made these cute little owl bags for my girls.  The pattern is from The Perfect Handmade Bag book. Really like this book. I've made several bags from it.  Of course they have their own design ideas.  I really like the fabrics they picked out.

Owl a little crooked.

Ruby wanted the pearl handle on her bag.

Layla wanted buttons on her bag and snaps on the inside.

At first she wouldn't smile so I had to make her laugh. She can't wait to show it off tomorrow.

Ruby's dress

I picked out this lovely fabric for Ruby's dress. It's called parasols. She really loves it but.

Instead she picked this fabric that was originally a ladies dress. So I cut it up and here it is. Didn't have enough for the collar or the border, but this really adds to the beauty.

Can you tell she really loves sit.

Layla's new frog dress

It's been a while I know. Over the past two months I've had 2 root canals, 4 crowns, a bad sinus infection caused from one of the crowns. In a few weeks I'll have one of my wisdom teeth extracted or I can have another root canal and crown. Decisions, Decisions. Today I had the last root canal and I'm feeling pretty good right now. It's time to do some sewing.
Yesterday I made this dress for Layla.  Don't know if you can see the frogs, but they are cute. I used an old Butterick pattern 3118 from the 70's. The pattern is a size 10 and I took about 2 inches from each side.  I got it from my Mom and I'm pretty sure she made it for my daughter at one time.

My little beauty. Hard to believe she will soon be 9 years old.
