I spent an enjoyable afternoon at Jo-Ann Fabrics today buying materials for my sample projects. I came home with a big box of fun!
So, what’s in the box…
Lots of felt, embroidery floss, crochet thread and COLOR! These materials will soon become stuffed animals, embroidered pillows, pin cushions, needle cases and much, much more!
I also bought fabric to make the patternless dress, tank top and skirt. I should have bought fabric that was made for children, but I found some gorgeous fabrics and I just couldn’t resist making adult-sized samples that I can wear!
Soon to be a belted, patternless dress (I promise to share the steps to make this when the time comes!)
Fabric for the dressy tank top. This is the patternless dress, minus several inches. I am working on a way to add a decorative band to the bottom.
Fabric for the simple skirt. I am going to add a ribbon belt to hide the elastic waist band. Also, the fabric is somewhat sheer, so it will lined with the same fabric.
I can’t wait to get started on these fun projects!
