Cupcakes, Polka Dots and Rik Rak

I am having my patience grown.  After 3 weeks of the flu, I loved being in my studio again to create this little outfit for a new baby!!!!.  Since it is close to valentines' day, I did one side in a pink heart fabric; the other is spring polka dot colors, and then the embroidered cupcake!   The little orange and cream buttons were so sweet.  I've been saving them for quite some time for the right outfit!   These little white bloomers in vintage dotted swiss or eyelet fabrics are really fun to make.  I am going to offer them in my etsy shop in sizes up to 4T;  also have some hot pink linen ruffle pants in the sewing machine now, and an AWESOME,  reImagined big pink roses Vera scarf becoming ruffle pants.  I forgot to photograph just the ruffle bloomers for the shop, though, cause the outfit was going out the door to my friend!  So the next pair is going in the shop!    I also got my Portobellopixie pattern in the mail finally, so I can start putting those fabrics together into little girl apron dresses, peasant tops, and even some mommy sized aprons!  Sandy Henderson is an awesome designer;  I'm really excited to be working her patterns with vintage fabrics!

Now, it is off to finish MY almost 17 year old's birthday present!  (No, it's not an apron dress!)
