I thought I'd show you my projects in a separate post. I wouldn't want to take away from Mallory's post.
This cute little sundress was made from a men's buttondown shirt. This is where I got the idea / instructions if anyone is interested. It was actually pretty easy. I got the shirt at the local Goodwill (along with several others that I plan to reconstruct later) for $3.50, so that's pretty good. I think for the other shirts I will end up putting a little ruffle or something on the bottom and along the top of the bodice...it makes it look a little girlier. (Is that a word?) I'm even more impressed, since the only measurement I knew of Mallory's (she was in bed when I sewed this) was her chest circumference - the rest I winged. Yay me.
And of course, one silly picture. This is supposed to be her dolls' pack-n-play, but apparently she thinks she fits okay, too. Goofball.
My second project to share comes from here. This one was a little trickier. In fact, I needed Matt to help me figure out how to fold the credit card slots - he needs to feel useful once in a while, no? But, overall, it's not as hard as it looks like it might be. My worst part was getting the snaps in the right way. I actually ended up having to cut the first couple top strips off and start over at one point. My stupid snap pliers doesn't work the way it's supposed to work.
I was planning on keeping this for myself to use in my new (clearance!) purse, but I totally forgot to use the brown piece of fabric that I bought, so it ended up very 70's orange and green. As I was looking at it, I first thought of my sister Tessa. So, the mail fairy made a trip to Fargo with my first fabric wallet. I hope she likes it. :)
