Girls will be Girly

2 lovely unique girly aprons
both made in crisp cotton.

The Pink Spotty Apron

This pretty pinafore-style apron
is made with lovely vivid pink
and white spot cotton
with a contrast of pale pink poplin
with a tiny cute pattern,
and a matching button
on the bodice

Every seam and hem is bound
with a bright turquoise bias binding
so no seams or edges show

The back has spotty cross over straps
long enough to go through
the loops and tie at the
back of the ribs.

The pockets are quite deep
giving plenty of hiding room
to keep things safe.

The Sweetie Ice Cream Apron
is also made in pinafore-style,
very practical for any
little girls baking day

The seams and edges are bound with
a pretty pink bias binding
which is a lovely contrast
to the turquoise poplin
and creamy pinks, blues and yellows
of the apron.

The cross-over back
ties securely
making sure clothes are covered

Inside is a Bloomin' Myrtle tag
sewn as a hanging loop

And there's a lovely button detail
on the centre of the bodice.

The measurements are
from the centre front to hem 15"
and the width across
the front is 18"
The size would suit ages 3-6 years.

Both aprons are now sold, thank you xx

Birdhouse in your Soul

These sweet little Birdhouses
are the newest addition to
the Bloomin' Myrtle range.

They are made from gorgeous
printed cotton from P&D Fabrics.

Each one is made individual
by the embellishments I've used,
standing approx. 25cm tall
and weighing approx. 600g.

First off is the Red Button Birdhouse.

It has a frilly band of brown & cream gingham
and the bird on the front has been hand-painted
in brown, red & green.

The large red button is from my
vintage button jar.
The Red Button Birdhouse is now sold.
Thank you xxx

The second is Green Button Birdhouse,
mostly because it has a large
green vintage button on the front

It also has a sweet little
appliqued bird in brown floral fabric
with a green felt wing.
The frilly ruffle is pale green
with tiny white polka dots.
The Green Button Birdhouse has been sold
Thank you xxx

The third is the Gingham Button Birdhouse

This has a large button that has
had the Mod Podge treatment
with brown gingham fabric,
which matches the ruffle
around the roof.

The front is embellished
with a little wooden bird.

All of the Birdhouses have a
rice-filled base, scented with
a mix of fresh smelling oils,
including lime, orange,
vanilla and flowers.

And the all have a variety
of buttons and little insects
and a little wooden perch.

The price of each Birdhouse is £9
inc. P&P to UK mainland.
All Birdhouses are sold now, thank you xxx
