So about three weeks ago while walking through the aisles of my local Walmart, I was stopped in my tracks by a huge rack of fabrics ON SALE. I'm not very good at sewing BUT I have noticed that fabrics and papers are one and the same. They have an array of designs, colors and textures that I just can't turn away from.
So my 1/2 hour Walmart trip turned into an hour cause I had to browse through the many fabric choices and get my choices cut. One of the prints I chose was a blue checkered design that I thougth would be a great foundation for a dress for Maddie to wear for Fourth of July.
So after a week of the fabric sitting on my craft table, I finally got to work on it and here's the result...
Like I said, I'm not a good seamstress compare to the other ladies in my family (Grandma, Mom and Sister) but I love the idea that with whatever sewing knowledge I have, I can 'MAKE' something for my little one that's unique and pretty.
I found these felt flowers in my scrapbook stash and it just so happened that it matched the color of the dress so I whipped up a quick floral headband for her as well.
I didn't want to mess with zippers here so I went with a tie band in the back.
and finally to add an accent of red in this dress, I added a ribbon trim (again found in my scrapbook stash) which I handsewn on the dress.
She looked really pretty when she wore this for the first time to church.
and there you have it. My latest sewing adventure.
Till next time,
