|My little puppy|
I made her fabric bows for her 'puppy' tails with some of the left over fabric. I bought this fabric for a project, but I can't remember what it was for, so this works. :) I painted her puppy face with the crayon style eyeliner. It doesn't smudge like face paint and I feel better using it over harsh face paints as well.
Here's the dress in all it's glory. I traced a dress she already had to get the top, then gathered the rest of the yard of fabric for the bottom.
We already had some paw print ribbon on hand so I thought it would add a little something. I cut all the pieces out correctly, but somehow when I put the dress together I flipped around the top piece so the dogs are upside down. Oops.
The dress was pretty long, but she's growing so fast that I really didn't want to cut off the excess so I added a wide hem and stitched it twice to hold it in place.
Per my litle stylist's request, I added her favorite puppy buttons. I've used these buttons for the girls' bows before and I just love them. I also added some more ribbon
to hide the threads that hold the elastic for the buttons for a really cute effect.
Here's some Talent Show Pics just for fun.
Maddie and her puppies.
My girl did so awesome on stage. I was one proud Mama. I'm pretty sure that using the microphone was her favorite part.
I love having any excuse to make something for my girls. I think it makes me happier than it makes them.
