Wedding Can Go On.

Finally sucess. After weeks of back on forth with mother of the flower girl we finally settled on design of sorts and I started to work. For those of you new to my random crafts I have been the responsible party for sewing to the flower girl dress for my sister's wedding, To make it all just a wee bit more challenging for this average sewer I had to take one anthropologie dress (bridesmaid dress) and make it into one fabulously perfect and sweet little flower girl dress all for the love my sister.:). BTW, I was supposed to make the ring barrier pillows as well but thanks to Etsy I foudn a much better crafter to do it for me.

Well I finally stoped procrastinating, only at the point when I realized the store was no longer carrying this dress and decided it was now or never. I must chop and sew. I am pretty pleased with the end result and I am hoping it just looks adorable on the little girl and her mother is pleased.. So below you will see the dress I started with, and two flower girl photos one with the sash and one without. We are all wearing sashes but I thought I might make something I little more funky to dress up the flower girl dress instead of the sash but those juices are still a brewing. I'll post photos of the big day once it has come and gone in three weeks.

Oh yes and ring barrier pillows I had made by Two Yellow Shoes.


Finally A New Project: Pennant Banners

>> Saturday, April 10, 2010

Once again I've let my day job get the best of my time. But I finally got a chance to work on a new project and try out my newest gadget. The "Big Shot". I bought this little thing at the Sewing Expo in Feb and yes I just now pulled it out of the box.I love it. Perfect for quick and easy sewing and scrap booking projects. So check out my latest one. It may be awhile but I post again. I plan on whipping up a few Happy Birthday banners to sell at craft show. I'll display them when I am done.

BTW: For those of you that don't sew this can be a completely no sew project. I just chose to add a few stitches.
