Just a quickie today as I need to get my car serviced so it's a day in Shrewsbury for me.
These are my latest makes for my friend's request for play school dressing up outfits.
I have raided my fabric stash and made two little tabards - shop or clinic outfit?
Then I re-vamped a silky top for a princess dress and made a crown and cape to go with it.
Such fun!!

I hope there are lots of crafty WOYWW desks out there for me to snoop later.
Have a great week everyone.
x Jo

I want a crown like that!! It's fab and such a clever design. I want a cloak too! It's my inner princessiness emerging, you see :-)
Hey, did you see the next WOYWW crop is May 16th? Are ya going to come? It would be fab to see you. I can recommend some good local BandBs!!

What a fun idea...I haven't heard of anything like that in this area. Only at Christmas time, usually the young ones looking for white fabric for Angels...I'm off to get 4 new tires today also but our little town don't have much else to entertain me with so will get a ride back home and be car-less for a while. Enjoy WOYWW, trying to keep warm and adjust to cooling temps. Have a fun week.

I love those little outfits, especially the one with the poppies (very appropriate for the time of year)
Also I love your rainbow photo. I've been to Shrewsbury a few times. Lovely place (I used to go on a residential lace making course every July just outside Shrewsbury).
Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder.
Have a good week.

What lovely fun for the little ones. Hope you had a good time in Shrewsbury and that the car came out happy. Hugs, Chris # 7

Neet said...

What fab ideas Jo. Love the idea behind the Princess outfit but the tabards are brilliant too.
Hope the car sailed through - why do we say 'sailed' when there is no water involved?

Ooh that dress is rather special, I'm sure the princess will be the belle of the ball in that.
