These adorable little dresses are made from a scarf I found at the thrift store on Wed.
I cut the scarf in half and made each half into a dress by sewing up one side and adding elastic smocking.
I like the red straps. It adds a nice amount of color.
This is a terrible picture. Brown against a brown background. What was I thinking? These dresses are super cute. I love the safari print.
Lions and tigers and parrots..oh my!
And another yellow sundress. This one is smaller, which makes it cuter:)
And a flower power skirt
with a pink ruffle.
and finally a new blanket with a double stitch around the blanket for extra security.
Bear paw prints.
With a yellow satin stitch outlining the paws.
It has been so long since I have made a new blanket that I forgot how long the satin stitch takes. I have become so used to doing a straight stitch that I had to stop every now and then to make sure I was actually sewing!
This sunday I will be at the First Peoples Festival and will be bringing these goodies with me. If any of you are in the area please stop by to say "Hi".
Also, here is an interesting fact. The picture for my banner was taken last year at the First Peoples Festival by a Times Colonist photographer for the paper. My picture was the only picture featured in the paper that day, for the festival that is. It was a pretty exciting moment for me:)
I hope you all have a great weekend with plenty of sunshine! We are lacking in sun here:(
