Just fun little projects going on around here... My girl, B, who hates shopping actually walked by a store and saw this dress on the right, and loved it. We went in to look at it, and for $168 you could take it home.
So i went yesterday, and, in my hood this is the kind of fabric you can find...
So, for $12 a yard, I picked up a yard of the gold poly crepe, and made one of her favorite simple dress patterns.
It took minutes to make, she loves it , and wants to add a Gold silk flower ($5.99) at the cinched waist ...Total cost $18. Yaa HOO!!
She had also requested a gum drop pillow (amy butler pattern)
and she picked out two sets of fabrics, this red one for her room here in NYC, and
This black quilted nylon! It's pretty Cool I have say that's my favorite!
They are super easy to make too, my only problem has been trying to find NATURAL stuffing.
the poly fill just does not keep it s shape well... So I may have to order that to find them properly...
Jenny Egg was already eyeing it for a dog bed... good luck!
