I took some major inspiration from a certain Luella dress and all things Valentine-y to come up with this top. It’s quite similar to those heart cut-out dresses that have been seen all over, but this is way easier to make than a dress! And a bit more wearable, too, seeing as how it’s just a shirt, and you can pair it and wear it with just about anything.
When I go out on the town (two or three times a year) I always have to run to the closet to find a purse that's not a diaper bag. I usually grab what used to be my everyday purse, which is a black leather hobo by Fossil. It's a great purse, but it's just too big for a date night. All I need to bring are my wallet, phone, keys, and some chapstick. I'm very high-maintenance like that. Several weekends ago I found myself all dressed up carrying a huge purse with, like, two things in it.
So, I’ve been talking about this ‘new work’/new line/new idea thing for quite some time. If not here, then on Facebook, or Twitter , or, you know, that thing called ‘real life’. And, for a lot of that time I was just blowing steam. Not that I wasn’t really working on this new idea, it’s just, well, mostly I was thinking about it. For a REALLY long time.
With bows being fiercely back in style, what better way than with a bright bow belt! You can pick any color for this but we'd recommend something solid and cotton. You'll need a simple snap as well to hand stitch on. The measurements for the three pieces you'll need to make are in the directions below.
This is one of my favorite things I’ve made ALL year! Okay, okay…the year hasn’t been that long, but still…I love this bookmark. If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly loosing regular bookmarks…if you still read old school, non-e-reader style books like this hold-out girl.
I had a goal this week to make myself a new shirt. Sweet Success. I tried something a little different this time.
