My Sewing Project

A new dress , my sewing project I have been working on this week. I started to play can you guess what I've been working on post, but I got side track doing others things. I bought one of those patterns you can  make  in two hours.



I made the short dress. I used a linen tablecloth that I purchased on one of my day trips.This is a little lighter in weight than linen fabric I saw at the fabric stores. It is very soft. Below, I have my dress hanging on Anne, my somewhat dress form.





Here in the next photo you can view the white floral trim I added  around the neck to soften the neckline. 

I thought the trim complimented it very well. Hmh! I think I might get some pink  leggins to wear with the dress. Oh! I almost forgot to share about the  shoulder purse. About three weeks ago my daughter and I bought two of  the bags to carry just a few items around with us while we are out and about. We had fun decorating them.Here is a close up of mine:





Here is a view of hers:








What a blessing it is to use our creative thoughts and energy, especially with others. Well I am off to work on some other creative thought. Have Awesome day.

Recycling & A New Storage Container

Here is a quick recycle idea . I recycled one of those cylinder box
that wall decals come in and decoupaged this tissue paper on the container.


Working with cylinder containers are a bit tricking for me.I always seem to get the paper laid out accurately and then once I start to glue, the design is going the wrong way that I intended too.
Anyone ever that problem?Chuckle! Here is a look of  the paper on with two coats of Mod Podge.
I love that product.


While  sitting there looking at the cylinder OMG I had  a thought. I have the these word stampsby Anna Griffin. I stamped the words Love, Believe , and Dream in the middle of the open part of the design.

The top turned out great.

Add a couple more coats of Mod Podge and you'll have  a new storage container.
Enjoy your day and  include some creative time for yourself.

Create & Inspire,
Harriet
