Trying to take good pictures of my busy B. is an effort in futility...I managed to get this one...she looks like she is in the loo...SIGH...I guess I'll take what I can get, even if it does resemble her being busy doing...er...her business.
The dress miss Bella is wearing is a beautiful Strausburg hand-me-down (on loan) from her cousin...I just love a good smock frock...I'm shopping online right now for a smocking thingy (not sure the correct terminology, yes I googled "smocking thingy") I'm feeling ambitous...or maybe just cocky...since I tought myself how to FINALLY make button holes :) after much chastizing from my hubby for not ever reading my usuers manuals for any of my electronics, I decided that now was as good a time as any to leanr some new skills. I made this "busy bag" for Isabella to take to church with her, she can stuff whatever she likes in it.
I lined the inside of the bag with Muslin for a little extra durability, the flower is glued onto an oversized button and then pinned onto the bag that way it can be removed for washing. I realize now that my bows look sloppy...oh well. The ribbon straps are tied onto-yep, you guess it! Buttonholes :-D
I'm still loving my sweet new layout so much!!! Happy Monday to all :)
