Making things make life better.

(These are already on facebook, so if you've seen them, sorry.)

I've been having a little artsy itch in my belly recently - it's probably the beautiful weather we've been having that just makes me want to do something pretty. So here's what I've been up to...

This was a random adult's shirt that a friend passed along to me. 
It is now a great tailgating dress.

This is my first attempt at ruffles. And after many hours, 
I finally figured them out. 
The skirt was also a friend's old shirt. Thanks, Ted.

I finally made something for Charlotte to wear tailgating - and from scratch (I have to say, I really patted myself on the back for this one.). This dress really made me want to take sewing lessons or actually open up a pattern and learn how to use them. 
Life might be a little easier afterward...

It looks like you could actually buy it in a store! 
I even used the fake bow to hide snaps!

Oh this? I just found an old beat up bookshelf on the side of the road and freshened it up.

And this was purchased at a thrift store. The yellow makes it funky.

I hated the way this shirt fit me. But I love the way it fits Joan!

Jersey braids? My new favorite thing.

They might just be the cutest little girls at Davis Wade Stadium.

Gosh. I want these dresses for me...

Go State! (But really, you should have won today.)

I found the tutorial for Joan's dress here.

I am totally going to have to copy that dress you made for Joan out of your MSU short with the braided straps!!! So cute Alisha! You are so talented!!!

Wow! I am so impressed by the outfits you made Joan & Charlotte! They are beautiful and I am jealous because I can barely sew a button on a shirt.
