I got the idea for using Timtex here after making this little pool bag for Gracie. It is the perfect size for her beach towel, goggles, small pool toys. It has her favorite character on it, too!
I adapted this from McCall's 6579, a Nancy Zieman pattern. I had this great mesh I picked up at Loving Stitches in Fayetteville. (I already used some of the red on my park bag for the water bottle area.) I used this for the bottom section of view D and only lined the top portion. There are snaps to help the back both close and create the shape. She can work it easily herself.
She couldn't wait to use today when we went to our local pool!
Who says the kids get all the characters? These just make me smile!
Last week, my daughter and I saw the Katy Perry movie - we both really enjoyed it. I loved all the whimsical costumes Katy and her backup dancers wore during the concerts. At one point, though, I realized that the fabric used in one of the outfits was the same Michael Miller fabric I had picked up recently and it was just blinged up a bit!
Here's the inspiration piece (the dress on the far left):
Here is a round-up of the boys' new shirts for our trip. You can guess which one is essentially and homage to the colors of Goofy!
