tinkerbell ... PLUS!

I've been a little absent from blog-land this week - working on a bunch of hair clips, some mending & some monogrammed towels. (Interested in the hair clips? Check them out on Facebook & let me know if there's any you'd like! I haven't listed them on ArtFire yet.) Anyway - I haven't been working on anything really magical or picture-worthy. (Let alone laundry, packing for our big trip, and other boring house stuff.) But there's a birthday party on Saturday - and I need a little more magic I think. So I made time for some fun stuff, too! Just giving her a Tinkerbell dress wasn't going to be enough. It's all about the accessories, right?


I started off by making a couple glittery clippies - pink polka dot ribbon & green leaf buttons - then a heaping pile of light pink glitter!Next - a diaper cover to match the dress.
Lastly - a little Tinkerbell purse. It is fully lined with the pink polka dot fabric. I made it with boxed corners on the bottom. I used pink polka dot fabric for the straps, and used some turquoise twill tape for embellishment. At the seam where the pieces together - a little bit of white eyelet trim and more twill tape. Voila! An adorable little purse for an adorable little girl.
{anyone interested in a tutorial on the purse? let me know!}
