I love the simplicity of it.  I'm wondering, though, did you design the decorative details on it, too, or did that come on the fabric already?  They're so cute, I think they really add to the fabulous-factor this dress has

Fabulous, makes me want to go out hunting for religious tapestries myself.  I'm so impressed, any tips for how you designed the top (since you said it was your own pattern)?

My boyfriend lives about 4000 miles away right now, so I had to get these finished this morning and shipped this afternoon to make sure they arrive somewhere in the vicinity of Monday.  Both are done in watercolor, although the heart was cut from white paper and then pasted down on top of the watercolor, with acrylic details in the corners taken from a Slovenian embroidery book I've got.  The bridge is in Manayunk, near Philadelphia, and not only does it hold special meaning, but it matches the colors in his newly painted living room.  I didn't frame it, unfortunately, because mailing that costs somewhere close to $50, and I'm a broke college student.

Here's the final product:

And here's the valentine card:

Now that I look at it, I really don't like the way they acrylic bits turned out.  I didn't have enough control with the brush, it came out looking rushed and uneven.  Eurgh.


I made a little envelope for the card, with a pink paper ribbon sealing it:

Comments/criticisms welcomed, thanks for looking!

@bornal: I LOVE FAT PONY TOO!  Bleach pen shirt of him would be super easy, these earrings were made in under ten minutes

@decidedly average: they're shrinky dinks, I drew on them in black colored pencil and colored sharpie, punched holes in, and popped them in the oven.  Super duper easy.

@tenorm02: thanks so much!

It's a good thing my little sister doesn't read Craftster, I made her these earrings for Christmas, but I had to get them done tonight since I'll be flying to Germany tomorrow afternoon for the holiday.

She's seventeen but still appreciates things intended for small children, so I made two pairs of earrings for her, one from the Shetland Pony of Kate Beaton's www.harkavagrant.com and one from the fluffy unicorn of Despicable Me.  (Note: last year I made her three bleach-stenciled shirts featuring different unicorn designs, she loves them and wears them on a regular basis to school without shame.  She's pretty awesome.)

Here they are:

in the box, all pretty and festive:

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

Your patience is incredible, nice work

Love them, particularly the last one (the fabric is great!)

Do you use a pattern, or just measure, cut, and sew?  (Never made a shift dress, didn't know they were so easy)

Either way, please share, they look great

We went backpacking up in the Adirondacks, and then to his old house in Syracuse.
