Bitty Bunny is Here!

Today I've listed this sweet little Easter set I've entitled 'Bitty Bunny'. I've again added my newly designed little ribbon tassles and this one is full of fun little pieces and a little bitty bunny....thus the title! I was able to purchase some fabulous trims, fabrics and other great embellishements from a children's clothing manufacturer and one of those great finds was the fabulous trim on this's a sweet little of a row of radishes! It's so unique and I have just enough to use on one other dress like this one. You'll have to take a peek at the darling bow and clip that were made to match this set, too. Angie (doodlesbowtique) used the trims I mailed to her and her collection of ribbons and trims to make the most darling accessories! When I opened the box and saw this one, I was amazed! She is so creative and does the most wonderfully, whimsical bows. She's a treasure, for sure, and just so much fun to work with!
My good friend, Laurie (kandy*kisses*) and I love listing together. She's made some darling little Easter sets and also the sweetest little painted purse. Also, she's started a new line of precious baby girl sets. You'll have to take a peek at hers...just sweet as sugar! Thanks for the great template, too, Laurie!
Once again, Gaby (janea04) has been the inspiration for my applique design. She's so talented! Thank you, my sweet friend, for sharing your drawing!

Congratulations Kandy & Kasey!

Miss Dotz Shoppe

Miss Dotz Shoppe...well this little gem is a real work of love! It took hours to cut and applique the zillions...well, not really that many---it just seemed like it...of little pieces on the front of the apron top. It's just the kind of creating I love to do. I so love adding little bits of details...tiny buttons, little bows, hand stitching and the huge splash of color. The top is a deconstructed (that means I took a pattern and changed it to work the way I wanted it to) jumper pattern. I added little eyelets to the side and laced it as a closure.
The fluffly, twirly skirt was a first for me. It was so much fun to construct...I got to go wild and add anything and everything I wanted to it...and I did!

A huge thank you to my sweet friend, Gaby, who drew the fabulous Polkadotz Shoppe for our new group. It was, of course, the inspiration for my new set. Gaby is not only a talented clothing designer, but a gifted artist as well.

Miss B and I went to our little boutique in town and purchased her very first pettiskirt. She's wanted one for a very long time. I actually had good intentions of making one for each of my sweet granddaughters for Christmas, but the fabric is still lying dormant! I even thought I might get one ready for Valentine's Day...still not luck! Well, they both have March birthdays,....
There is absolutely nothing sweeter for a Nanny than watching a granddaughter twirl in the woods in a much cherished pettiskirt. Enjoy and thanks for taking a peek!
