Purse/Candy Bag fit for a princess. Matches I'mani's Halloween costume.

I'mani's halloween princess costume is complete. I have given you upclose and total views. It is 7 inches too long, but she can use it for dress up. Amazing, the pattern was for a short skirt size 2. I did not lengthen the skirt, but did want a long skirt. Imagine if I had wanted the short skirt, fitted dress on the pattern! I also lengthened the sleeves. This is a simplicity, Disney pattern for Snow White and Cinderella. I plan to make her a matching trick or treat princess bag.

Spoke with I'mani today. She has been calling me weekly since I left DC. She goes to her mom and gets the phone. We chatter for about 1/2 hour. I really miss playing with her, but LOVE our chats on the phone. Some day I will be able to understand her!

Sleeves are on and finished!

Bodice and bird embroidery on the skirt front. The embroidery appears twice on the skirt front.

Many of you have heard I am making a princess costume for I'mani. Her 24 inch doll is getting one too because I needed to practice the embroideries on the same fabric before embroidering on her costume. I added a repeat on her costume to cover the full front. I t hink her costume will have a maderia applique hem, but that is to be determined with me working so much overtime.

I have both side by side, then the doll front skirt, then two of I'mani"s front skirt. The embroideries are from the Martha Pullen Embroidery Club.

Here is my Fairy Name: Saturnfilter - She is a trouble maker. She lives in high places where the clouds meet the earth. She is only seen on midsummer's eve. She wears pale blue like the sky. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.

I'mani is now 18 months old. Here are some pics from my three week babysitting trip. It was soooooo much fun! We bonded and now she really remembers and wants to talk to Grandma on the phone. Chatters a mile a minute! The pic are at the park, Baltimore harbor, at the park (I LOVE to swing), at mommy and me gym, and my first Dairy Queen blizzard (yum).

I'mani and Tammy went home yesterday. I miss them so much already. The house is so quiet. The cats are happy to have their house back. They were out of sorts. It was wonderful to spend time with both girls and I'mani. I hope to see them again this summer.

I LOVE birthday cake. It was yummy good.

Grandpa helped me ride my new airplane. I LOVE pushing the buttons and playing with the propeller, but my legs are a little short to ride it myself!

Grandma and grandpa got me this terrific toy with lots of buttons. It plays music and talks in English and Spanish. I do love pushing buttons!!!!!
