My only little sewing job today was adding some lace to the bottom of this little dress. It's one of my sister-in-laws, so I hope she doesn't mind too terribly when I give it back...he he. =0)
Tegan looks so cute in it, and it still fits great, but looks a little too short. I grabbed this really thick lace at the thrift store, so I just sewed it around the bottom, and it really does make it look a lot longer. Tegan loves it. She loves lace.
This is a dress that I did a while ago. In fact, it was one of my first alterations, if you can even call it that. It's another one from my sister-in-law that goes through the whole "underground clothing exchange" as my husband likes to call it, so it had been through one kid already. It had a row of ribbon at the bottom that was tearing off. I wanted it to be able to go through the next 3 little girls in the clothing exchange =0), so I fixed it.
Instead of trying to find the exact color of the off white, or cream colored ribbon...I decided to use pink.
I put these together real quick. My jewelry stands are on my desk, so when I'm sitting there doing my hair I always think about how I can change things. These were on a necklace with other pink beads, and they kind of didn't match the others, and I knew they'd make pretty earrings.
This is a strip of cloth I cut off of something, and I didn't know what else to do with it, so I made a little flower pin.
This was my first attempt at a korker bow. I don't know why they are called that, but I have seen them and thought they were so cute. I was always nervous to try it because you have to bake the ribbon. It's actually really easy. Maybe a little time consuming, but easy. I thought it would really only work with grosgrain ribbon, because that's all I've ever seen used, and this green was all I had. It's cute.
I'm running out of places to put Tegan's hair stuff. Again, people are telling me to sell them, but they are all different, and I want them all for variety ya know. I'm so silly.
You may wonder how I have the time to do all of this stuff. I don't really. When I have a craft day, or even part of a day, my house goes to pot, Josh has to make dinner, and the poor kids get neglected. Sigh.
