~Sophie's Bloomers Bag~

 A big hug a kiss and a very happy "HELLOooooo" to you all....I have miss you all so much! I have tried to visit as much as possible but time has not allowed me to visit as much as I would like..
We have had family visiting and staying with us off and on since before Christmas (it was a lovely visit) and with all the holidays time has just slipped away from me. Also I forgot my camera at our Daughter's home during Christmas and she just brought it me last weekend, so I was with out my camera (it was just terrible) I had camera withdrawals..LOL

I  was able to do some sewing before my Christmas break from work was over and  I sewed the "Sophie's Bloomer Bag" created by Becky from "Sweet Cottage Dreams" !. I used dark gray 100% suiting wool and a plaid grey and white wool for the ruffled bloomers, I lined the bag with water proof dark gray/black fabric, also I did not finish  the hem of the ruffles, instead I pulled the threads of fabric to leave a softer look since I was using wool and wool can tend to be heavy.
Sophie's Bloomer Bag is going to our daughter Desire'. Desire' wanted the ruffles on one side of the bag, Becky designed Sophie's Bloomer Bag with ruffles all the way around and she uses the pretties fabrics they are so light and fresh and very summery.

I enjoyed sewing Becky design and Desire' LOVES her bag!  Our granddaughter Aleena wants one too, she says she wants to bring it school to carry a few of her books in..How sweet is that! Thank you Becky for designing a bag that all ages love!..
If you would like to purchase the Sophie's Bloomers Bag pattern just go over to Sweet Cottage Dreams and order it from Becky..

Beverly said...

So happy to see you back. You have been missed. Life gets busy and takes us away for awhile as I know so well.
Love the Bloomer Bag. I didn't know there was a pattern and kinda made my own for a little girls bag.
Your use of the wool makes it a little more sophisticated for us big girls. Fringing the wool was very unique. Great job and know your daughter will love it.

Dear Elizabeth,

Thanks for the sweet visit! Jeff's Italian aunt, who was VERY opinionated, wouldn't DREAM of adding sugar to her sauce, yet others do.

Funny story-his Aunt Jean came to visit and ironed his underwear, then took all my clothes off their padded hangers and put his underwear on my hangers. We were newlyweds and I was stunned, but left them as is till she drove away (after digging up dozens of the plants I had just tucked into my garden!

Sending blessings,

I love this! I bought Becky's pattern too, I just haven't had the time to make it yet. This is completely different from what she shows on the cover but still so cute. It just goes to show how versatile the pattern is and how easy to make it your own. Beautiful job!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I've seen her patterns and love the designs! How beautiful it looks in this fabric! Love the ruffles! I'm going to Becky's blog again, too! Hugs! ♥

Saw this yesterday and LOVE it. Bern's is adorable as well and fits her personality. I was wondering if you could do something like this with one of my mom's dresses. Maybe a teddy bear or something for Peyton and May-Ree. :)
