As many of you know I enjoy adding as many embellishing details as I possibly can into a design or project. So be sure to look closely for details like.....
A yo-yo here, a yo-yo there, but not your Grandmother's yo-yo ...
Tilt the center of your yo-yo to the side and the design goes a little topsey-turvey, but in a good way! As a result, we have affectionately nicknamed this "the barnacle bubble" (thank you Marian for starting the whole thing, you are so right)!
Not really into handwork? Try the super simple whipped tucks.
These remind me of some of my first attempts at embroidery when I was a little girl. They are easy to do and the simple up and down stitches use the stripes as a needle placement guide. And guess what? You actually want the stitches to pucker up!
How high can you count?
Having a super slick Babylock Elegante sewing machine that makes truly wonderful automated buttonholes, I went wild adding buttonholes for ribbon beading. I have always liked the idea of using ordinary elements in a new or different way and this technique really fits the bill. Now, I'm not actually going to tell you the total number of buttonholes, let's just say you could quite possibly break the bank if you had to buy a button for each one!
What was it your high school driving instructor was always saying? Something like "Be sure to check your rear view...."
Well, that's what the photo above shows, the design on the back "cheek" of the bubble. Now if this was for me, I wouldn't be pointing out my widest part, but kids just look too cute from any angle!
Notice too, the new shell stitched bias trim with wrapped rickrack on the leg band.
