While holding the line on nail polish at school, pierced ears, bikinis and training bras, (A bra?! Seriously?! "But mom, everyone else has one!") I have to give way a little on the stuff that is only a matter of taste. Maybe the other stuff is just a matter of taste too. What looks like premature sexualisation and growing up too soon to me, probably looks very different to her. Parenthood looked so darned easy before I had the kids.
But back to the sewing!
She needed a new dance bag. She wanted something fashionable; no sweet motifs; no folky quilting cotton.
I think I have come up with something that will be just the ticket.
I downloaded this embroidery motif from Urban Threads. Then, I decorated it with hotfix Swarovski Crystals. Ideally, she would have liked it to say, "Dancing Queen." However, I don't have any embroidery software, so we have to settle what I can find for sale. On the plus side, this is a more general sentiment that I may have a chance of using again.
|Plenty of bling. I have a LOT of Swarovski Crystals left over from her Irish Dancing days. Might as well use 'em up!|
|Hopefully large enough for all her gear plus lunch, but not so large it overwhelms her frame.|
|As long as we are going Essex-fantastic here, why not a leopard lining?|
