This is what I've been up to lately....

So its the holidays on my side of the world and I've had some time to do some craft. This first is a message board that I bought. It was black and had the same criss-cross white ribbon. I thought it looked a bit bland for my room so I slid in some of my own fabric. And here it is-

 Yeah I do like vintage looking fabric.

 I had this old wooden frame, dark grey paint and a colour printer. Which then magically turned into this. I just love the Kimmidoll collection and I thought i would jus print images from the internet. Well I like it and it didn't coast me a thing!

 Seeing as I'm showing all my craft I thought I'd put up this dress as well. This was sewn by me a few years ago. The dress is made from a re-printed pattern that originally came from  the 1950s. I love the 1950s Fashion for its elegance.
 This dress is a black polyester satin dress that I made this year. I love this dress because it's strapless and the sweet heart shaped bodice.
 Just a close-up of the flower.

I made this skirt a month ago. The material is cotton and the waistband is black elastic.
