.in the works.

I have quite a few projects in the works, and I thought I'd share them today.

First up is a dress for Olivia that is nearly finished...just needs the big black flower pin for the sash in the middle, a zipper in the back and a hem on the bottom. This is repurposed from a SHOWER CURTAIN of all things ;). My mother in law had this fabric shower curtain several years ago, new, as she just wanted a swatch of the I took the rest with the notion of making a dress for Liv, and it's only just NOW coming to fruition ;)
I'll post model shots when it is finished ;)

Next up is some polysatin fabric for making Posy flowers from this tutorial...SUPER excited about this. One giant black one with be for the dress, to pin off center on the red sash.  The others will be for pins and for a bib necklace that I will probably keep for myself...or maybe stick on a headband for Liv. ;)

Also, I picked up some scrapbooking paper at Hobby Lobby today, with the 50% off sale...for a project my friend shared with me a few days ago (not posted on her site, YET, I don't believe)...for a beautiful jewelry hanger...excited to start this one.
AND last but not least (and honestly..not last, just all I am posting right now :) LOL)...fabric for ANOTHER dress for Liv...had this knit fabric for YEARS and she wants a 'super long flowy dress with it'....I am going to make this style dress (knocking off the pattern since I think I can handle just winging it...looks pretty straight forward, imo)...using a black ribbon, since that is what she specifically requested ;).
So, that's what *I* have in the works...hoping I can get to it all this coming week.  I also have a swap to make ATC's for...very excited to get started on that...haven't had a good swap in ages!

Hope your weekend is great!


  1. Oh. Does that mean I better hurry up and get a tut up now?? :rofl:

    The shower curtain dress rocks, and that knit stuff is awesome...can't wait to see it made up! :D

  2. Oh, and those flowers are GORGEOUS! They will make a BEAUTIFUL pin or bib!! I made mine with lining fabric; I hadn't even thought of satin! Have to try that now. :p
