Vegbee's peasant top can be sized down to 6month, if you extend the length, you'll get a dress.  the style is very similar to the dress you made which is lovely, I love the fabrics.

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

Sorted 90% of my beads into tiny jars and bags, and stowed them in a clear drawer! That helps me use them up. And sorted most of my broken/odd jewelry stash into a few clear divided boxes, them made jewelry. Posted a few things, here's the link.

Such pretty pieces, Bookstorebabe! I love jewelry made from broken things, whether it's other jewelry, beach glass, old trinkets, etc. They seem to be so full of history and magic  Smiley

I thought you all would like to see the scrap bookmarks I've been making. I got this idea when I was letting my son play with my tiny fabric scraps (the ones that are too small for anything else--I got the idea from Craftylittlemonkey and the popsickle sticks!) He found some packing tape and wanted to put it on top of the fabric he had glued down, and as I watched him, I realized that you can get some pretty cool results that way. So I cut up some strips of packing tape and pushed onto them some really small scraps in colors that compliment each other. Then I trimmed the excess and sewed it to some extra scrapbooking paper with a zig-zag stitch.

These are just the first few I made--I did something like 14 in all, 'cause they're really fun to make! I think I know what all my friends and relatives will be getting as gifts from now on!









100% from scraps!

Sometimes such good ideas come by accident!  You should do a tute for this! Cheesy

Spiffy, I'm admiring your scrappy bookmarks and then I read your story, woot! I am in LOVE with this teensy scrappy revolution lately, so many people incapable of ditching even the smallest little snips and snaps, LOLOL!

This is what I did all day, ha ha. This pin art block has been in a ziplock for over a year after the girl unscrewed the back and it fell apart. This is the second time we've put all the little spikes into the tiny holes. Finally done though, now I can give it away, lol!


And I wrapped the last of the wool yarn up and covered it with the roving I've been hoarding for about 3 years, I'm going to wash them with the sheets on hot tomorrow and felt them up. I've been wanting to make drier balls for ages now, I really hope these turn out!
