1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Vegbee Peasant Top to Birthday Girl Dress. on: July 25, 2008 06:33:23 AM
While trying to decide what to make for a first birthday present, I saw the 390847938473 posts here by people who followed Vegbee's fantastic peasant blouse tute.  Well - I couldn't let you guys have all the fun w/out me, right?

(Personal message to Vegbee - I :heart: your blog. You're tutes are fantastic.  Unfortunately, Blogger does not :heart: me.  It never, ever lets me comment.  So know please that you can tell me what to do any day of the week. Your lurker, Jenn.)

My only beef was that the tute CLEARLY said it would take me about an hour, and this sucker took me about 3.  This *could* be due to the fact that I'm the slowest crafter on the planet, though, so I guess I can't whine *too* much.  Wink

Birthday girl loved it, and looks freaking adorable wearing it -

I also made her this little tote for her treasures -

 - and was the hero of the birthday party.  Grin

More details and blah blah blah-ing can be found here, and more cute action shots and gratuitous patting myself on the back is here.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

Coming out of mostly-lurkdom to post this.  I'm entirely to proud to keep it to myself.   Grin

Our apartment has these huge windows that let in tons of light, but also let everyone out in the parking lot see what we're up to.  They open like a door, so curtains or blinds would be a real pain if we actually wanted to catch a breeze.  What to do, what to do....

All hail Gallery Glass paints by Plaid.  Without them, this fabulous window would not be possible.

Let us also take a moment to be thankful for husbands who let you do whatever the hell you want to the apartment, and maintenance men who speak no English, so can't ask you what the hell you think you're doing when they catch you painting the glass.  Roll Eyes

I love it. The whole story (including some ranting - I'm never going to be 100% happy with anything I do.) is on my blog.

So - what do you think?

*** Update on Page 3, complete w/ time it took, approx. expense, and my "process". (That cracks me up - sounds soooo serious for what amounted to doodling and coloring on a window.  Cheesy)***
