Next up is this delightful little bubble from Issue 26 of Australian Smocking and Embroidery, aptly named Baby Love:
Yes, this is the same issue I seem to be stuck on. The more I look at it, the more things I find that I must absolutely make! I have already used two smocking designs from this issue. The designs for Purple Passion and Little Miss Sunshine came from it.
But this time I am not only going to use this smocking design (called "Confetti") I am also going to use the pattern. This will be the first time I've used one of their patterns, so I have my fingers crossed. I know several people who have used AS&E patterns and they seem to love them. So, here goes!
This is the fabric I am using, a soft cotton twill that I bought at Sweet Treasures:
The background is a beautiful medium shade of aqua with little tiny orange and white flowers. I hope it's as pretty on your monitor as it is on mine!
And why yes, I have already cut it out. And started to smock the fronts. See?
I want to quit work and stay home and work on this. Anyone else ever feel that way, too?
