Yesterday I shared with you the Snow Days, Winter Wonderland Collection Fabric in Grey, which I bought to make my youngest niece Phoebe's collection as she loves Penguins. I used the 'Snow Day's fabric as the starting point and first drew up a drawstring back pack as Phoebe's Mum said she would love a little bag like the ones I made her eldest cousins Samuel & JJ.
I then thought it would be cute to make her a outfit to match, so I sketched up a little shirred waist skirt, as she loves Penguins I decided to feature penguins on the top. After sketching up a few ideas I decided to go with a felt applique penguin design.
To complete the outfit I decided to make an assortment of cute DIY bobby pins, which gave me the idea to make her a bobby pin holder , which could also double up as wall decor. After working out the pattern lay I realised I also had enough fabric to make her a small boxy pouch. After sketching up some ideas I decided to go for a exposed lace zipper for extra prettiness.
I will of course share all the sewing and craft tutorials over the next few weeks...
