I’ve been seeing a lot of ruffles recently…….everywhere…….and L.O.V.I.N.G. them.
No matter where or how they are used or what color they are, they seem feminine and H.O.T.!
I wish I was Size 8 because this blouse is so gorgeous, I’d buy it in a heart beat. It’s still available if you are size 8! Hurry.
And how about this whimsical Christmas stockings from EcoEtsy Team member, Rikrak. They are made with eco-felt. Cute, huh?
So I’ve stocked my shop with some ruffles. Remember the t-shirt memory quilt I made for Andrew? Well, after I used the front panels of the t-shirts to make the quilt, I had all these back panels left. I couldn’t throw them out right?
So, I made all these ruffled ‘this’ and ruffled ‘that’.
**I don’t know how to make the orange color not to glow in the dark like that in the picture but it doesn’t really glow in the dark.**
And with leftover strips of jersey fabric, I made a bunch of these florettes.
Wait until you see what I make with these. I’ll list them soon. I promise.
After I’m done with the florettes, I will venture into the corduroy and lace territory and see what I can come up with this pile. I didn’t buy any of the fabric and notions pictured here. They were from my friend’s mom who doesn’t sew anymore. She had some awesome fabric… in yards……including this pile of corduroy. I have more that’s not pictured here so I’ll be busy this winter.
Oh, did you notice the graceful, painfully thin and perfect mannequin above? That was my most prized dumpster dumping effort to date. Ever. Well, ok, I lied. A friend saw mannequins piled up in front of a store that was going out of business. So he picked up a few. He’s the epitome of Craigslist king. When “Craig” built the website, he built it for my friend. Anyway, when he heard I desperately needed a mannequin, he gave me the cleanest one. This is what she looks like without the turtle neck. Call me old fashioned but I’m sorry, she looked naked without a shirt so I put the turtle neck on her for the photo shoot.
Anyway, there they are. My latest items in the shop….just in time for the holiday. I’ll listing them all day today.
