I had the pleasure of testing these adorable Bubbla Shorts pattern from The Eli Monster in a 12 month size.  Baby girl fit them perfectly!  The Bubbla shorts pdf pattern were a very quick easy sew too.  You just need a 1/2 yard of fabric and some elastic.  It is even a great starter pattern for a beginner.  I get so many complements when she wears a pair.  They even have a cute bubble look from the back.

I found this navy and silver anchor fabric and I knew a had to make a pair of the Bubbla shorts with them.  I already had a navy body suit in stock and added this cute anchor design with waves embroidery design by Embroidery Monkey.  I also made a cute shabby flower by Sew Lucky Designs with my embroidery machine with extra scraps.  Its a quick sew with the embroidery machine.  Then takes a few snips with the scissors. I then douse the shabby flower in water, then throw it in the dryer and Voila! its all done.

I like to take fun pictures of my little ones, so I decided to remove all the books from my son’s boat bookcase and threw baby girl in it…..

Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
