Today’s number comes from Eve in SC!
“This spandex/shiny dress needs some help and I think you can doctor it up!! I think one of the Designing Women ladies wore this on the show twenty years ago Royal blue is one of my favorite colors, so I had to pass it along your way. Enjoy it and keep up the great work!!” Thanks for sending my pre-Christmas ensemble my way Eve!!
This piece was very shiny, very dated, and very blue – the latter is the one element that I’m A-OK with! Time to work this into a top for some laid back Christmas Eve-ing with the family!
Today’s remake comes from a girlfriend of mine, Señorita Ana, who was inspired by the heart stitched gloves I made. I was super excited to get a few pictures sent my way while she’s been at home crafting a few pairs with a girlfriend for holiday gifts.
The brilliant subject line to the photos…”making it happen. xoxo“ I couldn’t be prouder!!
I got this lovely dress from Cathie in Flint, MI about a year ago…
“Marisa – Please enjoy this dress I found at a yard sale – it’s a beauty…as is your inspirational blog. Merry Christmas and another happy year of outstanding creativity!!”
The sweetest note to have received and working on this piece a year later, so it ties in with the timing!!
So yesterday I finished up some embellished kitchen gloves for my mom (PS, she approved) and today I’m working on the last few gifts for my girlfriends! Sidenote to the gloves – some of you had questioned about the material that was stitched on…I wanted to go with what I had, but feel free to use oil cloth instead, as that’s waterproof. My mom is the neatest dish washer, so the fabric won’t be a issue for her
I was at Forever 21 doing some inspiration shopping (ie. visual purchasing) and came across these…
…I loved the fabric bows as studs, and used this as my inspiration for a few nifty gifts!
In working on getting all my gifts done before this weekend and had just a few more to complete. My knit heart gloves were sewn a week ago…
…and I had some other gloves to finish up today, those of the kitchen variety!!
I scored these two-toned lovelies at the 99 Cent Store, but you can go to your own kitchen for them or any Target or CVS in the area!
