On the last day of Vacation Bible School (which had a Medieval theme), the kids were to come in costume. Of course, my daughter didn't want to wear one of the dozens of princess dresses she owns. She wanted to be a "maiden", since she thought all the other girls would probably dress as a princess.
I was so proud of myself not buying a thing to make this (I love using up my fabric stash!) We looked online so I could get an idea of what she had in mind. Then she drew the corset she wanted and I modified a vest pattern with a scoop neck and taking a bit off the middle fronts so it wouldn't meet in the middle, then added grommets and ribbon. She wore a red shirt & I made a long black skirt from some double knit fabric I had. We also did a crown braid and added spray glitter and ribbon roses to her hair.
I think she looks a little Snow White-ish and I certainly think she is the fairest of all. :) - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
Got to hang out with my sweet Fiona a lot the week of VBS as she was too young to go. I wanted to make something with her so I let her pick some colors...she wanted blue, green, and brown and we made this great mermaid from Once Upon A Princess. I was thinking she could stamp the face, but she insisted on drawing it-so cute!!
Used Embird to put the lovely lettering on the design (design was a VIP design by Embroidery Library and the font was free from the Internet). The stitch time was crazy long....89 minutes I think....but my sweet mom is so worth it. :) - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
A fun little box for a gift card or other small gift. The box is from the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge. Love that it tells you exactly what size at which to cut. The chocolate top lifts completely and just fits right back in when you want to put the lid back on. Yum!
