Re-furb Dress

The Re-Furb Dress

I made this dress with no pattern, from another dress. I have a box/cube that I bought at Target a while back, and it's covered in this pattern. I just LOVE it.
So when my eye caught this pattern on fabric, I had to have it. Alas.... it was in the Junior's section. But only $6??? It was mine.

After thinking about how I could use it, for two or three weeks, I finally decided to make my daughter a dress out of it.
Voila! With some scissors, and my sewing machine, this is what came of my adventure.

It's by no means fancy - ANYONE could make this dress.

Just in time for her 2 year photos. :o)

Happy Picture Frames


This craft cost me $3.50, thanks to the dollar bins at Target! It was a 3-pack of picture frames, $2.50, and a roll of six different complimenting ribbon styles, $1.00. The only thing I used was a little ribbon and some scrapbook embellishments that I had sitting around in bins.

Combined with my hot glue gun, this just goes to show anything is possible!

It took no time at all, and the little embellishments on the corner gave it a personal touch.


I think if not for yourself, a fun craft like this would be perfect for a child to have hang in their room.
