A Sneak Peek! Mc Lion personalized Babybonbon Bundle by Rosanna Hope for Babybonbons

I have been working all weekend on my secret project I have been mentioning below and decided to give you all  a sneak peek at  what I am up to because I am so excited about it...I am working on a collection of luxurious  silky personalized baby blankets, . Each one is going to be very different and to start off there will be about 12 designs in my Babybonbon collection both for little fashionistas and their little guy friends. I think these are going to be the perfect answer to all the new baby shower gifts we need each month.    I just  have to know the name and it will be delivered  gift wrapped as a sweet confection , A Babybonbon! 

I am delighted as to how these are turning out, still figuring out some of the sewing issues, but I could not wait to show you the first one I just put together.  I  would love to have your feedback if you wouldn't mind dropping me a note either here or to my email,  

 Mc Lion  is going to be number One.  He is a sassy  whimsical little circus lion that all the little girl lions can`t help flirting with!  I have personalized the name Zachary on this one.   These baby and toddler blankets (two sizes)  are going to be very unique,  plush, soft and cuddly. Each one  of the choices will have one of my hand drawn designs on them and will be custom printed just for you. I am also trying to keep them very afforadable .  I am  organizing Babybonbon Parties where there will be disounts given and giveaways...If you would be interested in hosting a party, drop me a note.

 There will be a choice of two different fabrics  that  the blankets will be printed on. Mc Lion is on a charmeuse and there will be complimentary fabrics  for all your matching sewing projects.   Okay more to come very soon.  Oh , if you want to see special details just click on picture to make it a little larger.
Keep in touch....Best,

Jazzy Jasmine Fabric Dolly Pillow.....

I have always loved drawing and dressing my little dollies. Last fall I entered Jazzy Jasmine, an original hand drawn  geisha doll design into the Spoonflower Fabric Doll Contest. There were so many unique  special doll designs in the contest. Jazzy Jasmine was thrilled , but demure when she found out she had won the contest!

Jazzy Jasmine is a large scale printed fabric with back and front doll pattern,  She also can be reduced for fabric print for children's clothing.  Presently she is displayed as a 14 inch doll pattern . She makes the prettiest softest doll pillow for a gal from 1 to 100 . I have heard from many customers with the ideas they have used this fabric for. One gal ordered canvas weight fabric and made a window shade from her companion fabric, Jazzy Jasmine goes Pop Art.   Little sundresses and purses have been popular as well as Jazzy centered and featured on quilt projects.   I love her printed on Canvas for wall decor.

Embellishment is so fun with Jazzy. One gal even beaded her eye lashes.  I  adore  adding little silk flowers to her geisha obi and in her hair.
How Jazzy!

Ballerina Ballerina Sunday by Rosanna Hope for Babybonbons

Morning All,
Hope everyone is having a lazy Sunday Morning with a yummy cup of  your favorite coffee and the Sunday news papers.

Today I am about to make a little Dance Bag for  a Babybonbons Etsy customer with my Dancing Davina  fabric that I recently designed. I may add a little of my pink Slippers and Roses  Classic Fabric for pocket inside. .
I am going into my vintage stash of fabrics to embellish the bag. . Last year I went crazy at a my favorite fabric store in Hollywood Florida.   I went to purchase something there and found out they were auctioning the entire store later in the week. The owner was 94 and had been in the same spot for over 50 years. I could not beleive all these little treasures were going by the way side.  Well yes, I attended the auction and my entire garage is full  now and in addition  a complete storage room of old laces, trims, embellishments, fabrics and braids, old buttons, eyelets in just about any width and color you can imagine., He had trims that still had the old phone numbers on them  CH 3-0304 from the old manufacturing  firms in NY that were no longer in business.At the time it was sooooooo exciting and I just could not do without them even though my daughter was calling me  hourly  to ABORT and leave ASAP, where was I ever going to find them again?  Now my husband is trying to keep his patience with me. Well you know what a passion for fabric does to a gal.  If you all are ever looking for little lace treasures, give me a call , I would love to share!.

I have the perfect little pink and purple eyelet trim pieces to embellish Dancing Davina and  by the end of the day she will be the perfect little dance bag ready to hold the  little ballet toe shoes and tutu  for dancing class this week. I illustrated this little dollie, Dancing Davina on my Wacom tablet recently. She can also be a soft little dollie for your special ballerina diva.  She is sold by the yard or fat quarter.  

Hope you have a very sweet day,

Hand painted Sea Side Mermaid Baby Jacket by Rosanna Hope for Babybonbons

It is a sunny, toasty day here in Maimi, a perfect day to to go to the ocean  and start my summer reading.  I am reading A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick, a New York Times best seller and so intriquing. One of those  books you don`t want to put down, good beach reading.  

Although I am now concentrating on designing printed fabric, after returning from the beach one day  last year  , I was inspired to sit down and  hand paint this little Sea Side mermaid  and shell  toddler jacket. It is about a 12  18 month size.

I used a rayon charmeuse fabric to paint on  and Jacquard dye Na flow for the paints with  a  clear resist. The paints flow so beautifully on the charmeuse.   The hand on this jacket is so luxurious.  It  would  be precious over a bathing suit at the sea side resort or a little sundress, it is pretty fancy and one of a kind.  I adore the look of silk painting and in my fabric design now I  still try to achieve the same  free flowing watercolor feel.

I began by tracing my pattern on my fabric and painting  on the  front and back pattern pieces that  I needed to cut and sew the jacket. This allowed me to place my designs in exact position.  After painting the background of the front of the jacket, I cut and  appliqued the fish  with my viking embroidery machine.  I have a hugh stash of vintage and new fabrics and lined the jacket with a pretty pink eyelet fabric and little polka dot cuffs.

This little jacket is now in my Babybonbons Etsy shop.

hmmmm,  after writing this, I decided to try to replicate  this design  for one of my personalized blankets. I guess I may not get out to the beach today after all. But will  put my design up soon for all to see....
Have a sweet weekend,
Rosanna Hope

Madeleine the Circus Monkey

This special little silky blanket is hand painted with non toxic dyes on polyester charmeuse and features my original design of Madeleine the Circus Monkey. She is an adorable sassy snazzy little monkey who was too precocious and wild for the zoo and was returned to the jungle. Along came the circus safari and this glamorous, charming fashionista Monkey was begged to join up and tour. The idea was irresistible, she packed her up her glamorous line of designer clothes and she never looked back.

This blanket has a beautiful little ruffle of lavender polka dots and is trimmed in gros grain ribbon. It is backed in softest plush light green minke fabric. Sure to be your babies most favorite item to touch and also to look at. She will giggle with joy when she sees it! Madeleine is enchanting.
Very soon, Madeleine will be available to personalize for your little guy or gal with coordinate fabrics for the nursery.
