And this one was made with some discounted fabric I picked up on my travels - I wanted to make sure the size was ok before looking at other fabrics...
...which it was. Gotta love that :)
I've also been busy making a dress for a special little person. A babushka dress. I had seen one similar in a craft magazine from the library and thought I'd try my own take on it:
As the magazine had been returned, I came up with my own pattern for the babushka lady and used fusible web and zig-zag stitch to attach the pattern pieces to the dress. Our local primary school had a fete recently where I found the fabric scraps, which I thought would be ideal for this project!
The face is embroidered with two strands of embroidery floss and the cheeks are small circles of felt.
The back of the dress - no zip, nice and simple....
I'm pretty happy with it, and although it could be finished now, I think it's still needing something...Maybe some trim along the bottom edge? Rick-rack? What colour? Or perhaps some pockets? Square or curved? Argh! I've been staring at it too long and am completely confused. That's why I'm throwing it out into the universe in the hope that the answer will come back to me. :)
Have you got any projects on the go at the moment?
