One more T-Shirt Dress

Paisly T-shirtThe bright flowers captured my attention and rather than just put one, I left them connected and added a two and brought them down to the waist.  These projects are fast and fun and since my granddaughter now has more than she needs, maybe I should start selling them?  Etsy, Farmers Market or Ebay?  What do you think, or maybe a local store?

New use of Planes Head

IMG_5688 IMG_5687They make a rather odd model for my hats, but they seem to fit and you can see what they look like.  Brown & Green Dots Brown & Green Dot Detail IMG_5561Thought I would add the dresses that the hats are for.   I put off making them, but they were much easier than AI ever thought they would be.  Trying to think how to make a business with this.   One that actually makes money.  Any ideas?  Maybe I will make some and put them on Etsy  and see what happens.  I do have an Art Show next month, so would be painting.  I can do that with the bandaid decorating my hand from  my slash earlier or should I say my encounter with the rotary cutter.  I do now acknowledge that they are quite sharp.

T-Shirt Dress with Flower Applique

Today I worked on three T-shirt dress and this was my last one and now I have to take a little break as I attempted to cut off the end of my finger with a rotary cutter.  Time for a glass of wine!   But I did photograph my hats using my drawing head.  Pretty funny use for it.  T-Shirt dress with flowers

Cupcakes for Holly

Cupcakes for HollyHolly is five and when I saw this fabric, thought it could make another “fast & Furious” T-shirt dress.  I buy the T-0shirts at Walmart for under $5.00 and the fabric where ever I can find it.  This fabric is from Walmart and it took about a yard at $3.00 a yard, so here is a way to make a really fun little dress for literally pennies.  I am going to start making sun hats to match the dresses.  I made a couple yesterday to match dresses I made in the past and they were so easy, I thought I would make more.  Maybe I should try to think of a way to market these, so I actually make a little money.  For now I am just having a great time sewing again after not for over 40 years.

Meet Me in Paris

Meet me in ParisThis is another one of my “Fast & Furious” dresses.  I had fabric left over from a Fund Raiser I helped on for the Boys & Girls Club, and thought it might be interpreted into a cute T-shirt dress.  I am starting to think taking a larger piece and adding it to the top of the dress is more fun than something small.  Most people just add a small appliqué to the bodice and it looks a little floaty, so I thought I would try something slightly different.  I loved Paris and hope to go back again soon.
