Tea towel dresses

I saw a post on and thought they were adorable! I had to try them out! So, over to A Little Loveliness I went and printed out the instructions. My daughters friend is moving to Texas so we were having her over for a weekend of fun before she would have to leave and I brought them to Jo-Ann's to find see what we could find. I picked up one embroidered tea towel (they only had one!) and then let the girls find a fabric they liked. We ended up with white with silver sparkles and my daughter picked the turquoise ribbon, while her friend, the purple. It took a while to make as I had to finish all eight edges of fabric instead of just the two from cutting the towel in half. If you go to you can see the original post - just look for the post from July 19, 2011 titled "Tea Towel Pillowcase Doll Dress Tutorial" and there are so many more wonderful things if you look around Melissa's site! Here are the photos of the doll dresses we made on Saturday July 23, 2011....

Tacky Tuesday's Challenge #7 - Sea Creature

It took me a while to come up with this one, but I really enjoyed it once it came to me! I used George to cut out the stencil for the letters and then used Studio 8 glitter glue to color them in, I used Paper Doll Dress Up and glitter paper for the sand and the sea creatures were with Create A Critter. I used my gypsy and lined up all my paper and let it go!

Hope you like it!

BTW - This was what I commented when the new challenge went up on June 21st...
"woohoo! new challenge, now where is my craft office? I know it was in that corner of the house, but it is missing under a lot of paperwork and stacks of school books! LOL!"
Unfortunately, my office was never found and I crafted on a corner of my desk and my lap! LOL! (Three tests and two finals makes it difficult to organize! But no worries! I have a week to straighten my nonsense out!
