Update from yesterday's post.......
You remember - Kate gave me a pretty laundry bag to upcycle to make a little dress, as part of the Dressing a girl around the world scheme, that Wipso and I have decided to support.
Well Kate - what do you think? Will it do?
I un-picked the bag and re-cut the fabric, adding a little bit of pretty floral print at the hem and for the binding and straps. Then I cut out the little horse from the rest of the bag and appliqued it to the front of the dress - cute isn't it?!
Of course, then I got to thinking that, somewhere in the depths of M's wardrobe, there was one of her laundry bags - she obviously doesn't need it (lol - why is it in her wardrobe here and not her wardrobe in her own home, I ask myself.)
So after rummaging round I found it, washed it, un-picked it and, as before added a few bits and bobs and here it is as good as new.
Now I need to add it to Wipso's TEN that she has been busy with this week and T's beautiful little first attempt that she made with us on Monday. All together we should have at least 15 to post to Sew Scrumptious who has been collecting these dresses for girls in Africa.
Of course if anyone else has a laundry bag that looks as if it is good enough to make one of these pretty little frocks do let me know!!!
