My First Handmade Dress - Results

So here it is....The inspiration was a pillowcase dress, though this wasnt from a pillowcase. I used raw fabric and some embellishments. I love the way it looks though I think next time I will be changing how it ties on. The ribbons on the shoulders keep slipping off.

Overall, I think it's pretty! Thanks for looking!

My First Handmade Dress!

I am going to be making a dress for Gabby today! First time. Should be interesting ;) A learning experience if nothing else. :) I will post photos once I am done!

Enjoy this wonderful day!

Camera Strap

I have been wanting to make a camera strap for a while now, but I have been preoccupied. So, I finally picked out some fabric I have been wanting to use and decided to sit down and make it!

I embroidered each piece, not sure if you can see it very well.

Love the way it came out! Now I am thinking of making several more in different designs and swapping them out depending on which I want at the time. A blue theme sounds nice! Spring inspired me for this theme!

I would like to thank Vanessa at The Crafty Gemini for taking the time to make this Tutorial!
