Today I am going to show what I did for Hadley; next week I will feature Layla's little bag.
My shower curtain arrived in this white pouch ~
I decided that a few pink flowers would brighten it. I cut petals from solid pink and pink polka dotted cotton. I was able to just fold in the bottom edges of the solid pink.
Since I wanted to be sure that the polka dots showed, I pinched the bottom of the remaining petals.
And pressed all of the petals so that they would remain folded. Since the original petals on the bag were frayed, I kept mine the same.
I began randomly inserting the petals into the top of the existing flower.
Then I added the middle petals. When I was satisfied with the placement, I hand tacked each petal at the top and bottom.
The middle still looked a little plain, so I decided to add a fabric covered button.
To make the bag special for Hadley, I appliqued an "H" using the technique I used for my Halloween place mats.
Hope my little girl finds lots of special stuff to store in her little bag!
