#102 Pattern of the Week

This weeks featured pattern is the Pleated Bubble #102. This has been a top seller for the past 10 years and is one of my favorites. This bubble was featured in "Creative Needle" magazine in 2003. It is made from blue gingham with little fish embroidered on the white collar.

Made from pink Swiss baby flannel, this bubble appeared in "Creative Needle" magazine in 2001. I had no idea that it was going to be in the magazine, and I still remember how surprised and excited I was when I recognized "one of mine!"

A cute Easter outfit. This version with the round collar, is made from Imperial Broadcloth and trimmed with purchased tatting. It appeared in "Sew Beautiful" magazine several years ago.

The design and the bullion instructions for the bunny are in the "Heirloom Embroidery Book."

For something dressier, this bubble is made from sage green Dupioni Silk.

The collar is made from ecru pima cotton, and is trimmed with tiny lace and embroidery.
Made from blue and white linen, this version shows that silk ribbon can also be for boys!

It only took a few simple embroidery stitches to dress up the front pleat. The bunny's body and head are made from Straight Stitches, while his ears are Lazy Daisies, and his tail is a French Knot.

Start planning your Spring sewing now. It will be here before we know it!

This is one of my favorites. It is sitting on the chair in my sewing room right now waiting to be cut out.
