Now, the next part is not really an exact science. Every shirt is different, and it especially matters if you're dyeing white to dark like me, or maybe just a color to a similar dark color. If you're really unsure about things, you can always test dye a swatch of fabric. In fact, I recommend it, because as I found out, the dye doesn't always behave like you think it will... So! Here's how I did it.

My Purple dress Purple is my favorite color, that’s why it was one of the main colors of our wedding (along with green, Ken’s favorite color). But after the wedding and for longer than a year I could not even look at purple, I was so sick of it! Happily I am finally detoxing from purple =] So my first step to officially show my re-born love for that color, is to finally wear it again. I decided to make a dress for Ken’s cousin wedding last weekend and as usual I had to share it with all of you. I had that purple fabric way before our wedding – I actually brought it from Chile – and yes, if you are wondering, did she really move to the California with a bunch of fabric? Yes I did =]

A Chunky Throw Pillow - a Fabulous Finger-Knitting Project Finger-knitting has done grown up, as I like to say. My latest finger-knitting project DIY is featured on Design*Sponge today. I have always thought finger-knitting quite beautiful. How sad that it is typically relegated to the world of “children’s” craft. Not that it isn’t a great craft for young children (to learn how, click here), but this pillow is here to step out and say, consider me. I think it is modern and updated and a perfect way to achieve that chunky knit look without actually knitting! .

Free Sewing Patterns and Sewing Machine Help at AllCrafts! Online Since 2000 FreeCrafts Free Holiday Crafts Freestyle Hot Mess Mommy Dress So I found this fabric on ultra clearance at Joanne’s and I thought it could be pretty fabulous. I was in the mood to sew while little S was napping but didn’t have a pattern so I just started cutting and sewing and this is what I came up with. Note my husband’s mad picture taking skills that created a shadow to make me look ten pounds thinner then I have in years. Love him. I don’t have a full DIY but I did draw out a pattern of sorts if this seems like your kind of dress. It’s just really fun to kind of go at sewing freestyle and see what you come up with. Sewing Patterns Online This is a collection of patterns and links to sewing patterns for clothing for older children and adults. Some of the patterns that I link to are charity patterns, and they ask that if you use them for personal use, that you make an extra and give it to a charity. I think that's a lovely thought, and encourage everyone to do so. Return to Another Family Spot Links about Judaism for kids Credits for graphics and webrings Like the page?
