You did a great job!  I love that you used shirring; it is so comfortable. Smiley

Your dress is turned-out wonderful!  I love the fact that it is so unique and definitely one-of-a-kind. But please, next time no more comments about an "ugly mug", you are very pretty! Wink

This dress looks so cute on her, but if I tried to wear something like that, I would surely look pregnant.  (And since I have four kids, people would not be shy of asking!) Shocked

I love the collar on the blouse, and of course the blue dress is lovely!  This pattern may be above my sewing skill level, but I would still like to try! Cheesy

Did you use a pattern?  I love the design!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hand-painted metal switchplate and outlet covers for kitchen on: March 17, 2008 10:53:00 AM
I am a neat freak when it comes to having a clean kitchen counter.  I don't want any canisters or decor sitting around cluttering things.  A consequence of keeping the counter clear is that the ugly beige switch plates were always in clear display.

I picked-up these bronze toned metal covers from Lowes for $3-4 each and used some "for metal" craft paint from Wal-mart. 





I didn't have to sand or roughen the surface and the paint adhered perfectly. It only took me about an hour to paint all three of these and I have plenty of paint left over.  I think I might expand and replace more covers around the house.

I'm inspired!  I will try to have a little more imagination next time I see ugly canvas shoes on sale.  These are great!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Cafe Curtains - 3 fabrics sewn into 4 panels on: March 16, 2008 07:41:30 PM
That is exactly what I did with these.  By making the majority of the panel with the bargain fabric, I was able to splurge on the Amy Butler fabric.

You did a great job! Polished!  What kind of machine did you use for the applique?  Did you use a pattern?

This is definitely moving onto my list of "to do" projects.  I have a hard case cover for my machine, but this is so much cuter.  Perhaps I will sew a cover for my cover!
