Make it Monday- Bella Blvd & The Potato Chip Skirt



IMG_9848
Spring is NEAR! Hallelujah! Time to get to sewing up new spring clothes. The Potato Chip skirt is a new pattern by Tie Dye Diva. It comes in three options, lined, unlined and reversible. I chose to go with lined version since I used the Sunny Happy Skies white with polka dots fabric.

I used Snapshots Hearts in Orange for a fun pop of bright to line the pockets. The pattern teaches you how to add decorative piping even! I didn't go that far, but next time for sure.

With my leftover fabrics I made a matching applique shirt (pattern found HERE).

Make it Monday- Deco Doil Boot Spurs & a Tilly Top

IMG_9750
I used a tried and true favorite pattern of mine for my daughters top, you may even recognize it.  It’s theTilly by Brownie Goose and has been here a few times.  I modified it again to have an open back with sash closure.  Perfect for anytime of year and it pairs perfectly with her Lily Ruffler bottoms.

To create the spurs I followed the instructions in the design.  I used the same technique from myprevious post to apply the iCraft® Deco Foil™ to wool felt. If you look through Sevens Emporiums designs there are a few I think would be fantastic childrens party favors.  Gold Sheriffs badges come to mind!
