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.

My Little Pony Dress VW Van DressThis dress cost about $4.00 a piece to make and with a little creative energy are fun.  the T-shirts were on on sale at Wally World and the fabric was about $2.00 a yard.  It literally takes no time and there you have a play dress, that doesn’t take much time or energy and doesn’t cost much either.  Perfect for preschool or a carefree day.

 

My granddaughter loves My Little Pony and would watch it over and over and over if I let her.  The VW Bus was mostly for me, as I just loved the print.

 

Girls just like to have fun, no matter what the age!!

Every little girl dreams of being a Princess

Every little girl dreams of being a Princess

My granddaughter Claire visited me for two weeks and I rediscovered that all little girls love pretending to be a Princess. Everywhere we went she looked at all the Disney Princesses. Walt Disney brought the Princess Theory to life with all his happy films about Princesses.

I decided Claire would love a Princess dress, without being over the top with my son, who is not so sure about the Princess Concept. Yesterday I designed and made Claire’s personal princess dress. If you look closely you will see castles and princesses and ponies in the design.
