Francine La Froggie's First Tropical Storm

Francine La Froggie, one if my whimsical illustrations for my new collection of silky  Babybonbon Baby Blankets looks a little curious tonight. We just got" Tropical Bonnie" storm warnings down  here in South Florida.  She is about to weather her first Tropical Storm
but you know
Froggies are such charming natural little creatures to ride out  these storms, Especially Francine La Froggie.


I am so excited as the samples of my first luxurious  little  Babybonbon blankets are coming back now. I just adore this  poly charmeuse  fabric they are printed on. It is  absolutely so  silky, I can guarantee you that your babies and toddlers are going to just fall in love with the feel of these blankets. It is backed additionally in a very ultra plush fabric. I have finally made a choice on the finishing touches and decided to use a jumbo half inch cording  on most of them.  Each design will be covered  in one of my coordinate  fabric designs, it's Froggie Bubble Dots for Francine.  I am using a little larger cording than these  pictures display so the bright little dots will become a wider  frame for  these little piece of "baby art".  I will be offering matching pillows and additional coordinating fabrics by the yard for  all your nursery design projects.  I am also hoping to add a line of baby sheets and matching wall art prints for the complete nursery  package.

Froggie Bubble Dot Fabric Available also by the yard

I am thrilled  to actually see my  finished art work on these luxurious plush "Tuckies". The colors are printing better than my expectations and yes, they are washable.   I love the  custom design aspect of these blankets which I think makes them so appealing. We can have your little special guy's or charming diva's name printed directly on your blankets.   Your baby or toddler  will have a special little piece of art to cherish for years to come.

Well, Francine is not your only choice, there are 11 others in this dreamy little collection, 

                                        but she sure is one of the charming ones!

                                             We are all buttoned down here in south Florida to weather out the storm.............    
                                                   Nite and hugs from Rosanna and Francine

My new Babybonbons Business Card

It is over 90 degrees and so  humid here in Miami Beach and a perfect time to just stay in my air conditioned studio. . For the past two days I have been drawing  my new business card for Babybonbons.Darlin' Baby Cupcake is the star. I am so anxious to start to print them, but unfortunately still do not have my Babybonbon website up. I have been using Etsy for all selling.  I am on the outlook  for a web designer who is whimsical and would love to work with me on this project.  .

Last year I found Spoonflower and was elated to start designing fabrics. For several years I had been silk painting all my designs on little toddler and children's clothing and accessories. I had been searching the web for a place that would print fabric in small batches.  One of my first  fabric was Yummy Pink Bonbons. I designed this pattern for Birthday party table cloths and it one of the ruffles in my  new Kit, The Yummiest First Birthday Party  Outfit.   This 54" One yard piece of fabric which I spoke about in a previous post has all the Yummy printed pieces to  sew and dress your fashionista  in the smartest Birthday fashion.

Yummy Pink Bonbons is available for craft and sewing projects also as separate yardage in my Spoonflower shop and also  in my Etsy shop along with the coordinate fabrics from this collection.
Olivia is One wears this sweet toddler Party outfit. Dolly Olivia is also available now printed in this sweet outfit on 54" organic cotton sateen, quilting cotton,  cotton knits and a variety of other fabrics. I love using her appliqued on little gals pinafores too.  She can be printed in a variety of sizes. She also was invited to  The Yummy Toy Tea Party Babybonbon Baby Blanket which is on of my latest new plush silky baby and toddler collection. You can print the name of your favorite little tyke on any of the 12 designs.
The yummy pink bonbons looks so delicious that Baby Cupcake convinced me to add them to the new Babybonbons business card.
I think they also are going to make some fun tissue paper for my inner packaging of my new line of baby blankets, pillows and nursery accessories.

On this note, I hope you all are going to have a very sweet evening after all this talk about yummies!

I just finished my first sample of my Jazzy Jasmine Personalized children's blankets which is part of my new collection of Babybonbon Bundles
Jazzy Jasmine is one of the more feminine designs in the collection.
I am finishing this 27 x 27 inch silky poly charmeuse blanket with a satin ribbon border
which I feel accents the delicate cherry blossoms in her garden..

Each blanket is finished in different fashion and you can print any name of your favorite little diva or guy
directly on the fabric.  Babies and Toddlers and Mommies fall in love with these whimsical soft little Art Treasures.

              These blankets which I call Tuckies are backed with a equally soft Plush Minky

                                This Blanket is sure to Pamper and Spoil your special little fashionista.
                                      Jazzy Jasmine is printed from one of my watercolor art pieces..
