I have to start off with apologizing for being behind on my posts. I made some huge changes in this past week that have left me in a less then crafty mood! Things however are starting to look up and get better and I appreciate those who have stood by me.
Now onto some updates! Over the past few weeks I have been busily crafting away for the Spring Made By Hand Show. I’m trying my hardest to use only what I have in my stash of fabrics but I’m a sucker for supplies! More details on that tomorrow 😉
So far I have half of what I want made, ready to be finished, all sewn waiting for the final steps! I did however whip up a batch of my popular keychain pouches!
I also started a batch of stamped pouches last week too!
I chopped off those halter pieces and added some darts and after a few fittings and taking in, I had me a new dress! A far more flattering one as well!
I added darts to make it more fitted across the chest. Also, with my collection of elastic thread, I added a small amount of stitching to cinch it in a teensy bit more!
I’m in love with my new dress! This is the first time I’ve done this type of refashion and I’m itching to do more. I may have to hit up some thrift stores to see what I can find!
I’ll be spending the rest of my weekend in Toronto shopping for more supplies. So far I have scored 3 different types of Amy Butler fabrics and a cool stash of beads and a list of things to get tomorrow 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend and if you are enjoying St Pattys day celebrations, stay safe and have fun!
