Got a few more ties for my granddaughter's skirt and headbands and flowers.
This sweet little top was meant to be kept and worn; then I realized it said hand wash cold; do not twist;lay flat to dry.....etc., etc.,.......that means too much trouble for me:D..so maybe it will be useful for something else in the future. No biggie......each item only costs .99 at a certain thrift store we go to, so I don't feel as though it was a waste of money. The shiny fabric is a dark yellow that looks rose colored when you turn it in the light; it's a blouse, will make some nice pretties! and to the right of the blouse is a butterscotch organza-type curtain sheer......huge...already made some flowers out of it, and it burned nicely :D unfortunately my grandson caught me with a candle and a stack of circles. Poop.
And this men's shirt was what I was looking for, so I could make over some stained t-shirts of mine. A few weeks ago, I would've just used Hoss'; but he actually got rid of most of his clothes he doesn't wear anymore....go figure! The dress is huge and twirly at the bottom, lined in off white, and has a long row of covered buttons..lots of potential there.........peasant blouse for me?? lol
Isn't this the best? My daughter spotted this wrap-around nubby acrylic skirt lined in black (hmm,so many flowers in my future!!) As soon as I saw it, I thought "cape.....or poncho for Granddaughter" it's lavender and gray shades, with light lavender ribbons and soft mint green ribbons woven through-out :D And look at the dusty lavender satin floor length formal dress....lined in soft lavender.......flowers flowers flowers......and for the cape/poncho :D
I got this pink stretchy turtleneck from a bag of clothes my niece outgrew, and cut the bottom off for a skirt for my great-niece to wear to dance class. I used a few of the white burned fabric flowers on the front of the skirt to hide some light stains; a zig-zag stitch for each stem and a piece of ribbon tied in a knot for the leaves. Cute! Her mama will have to hand-sew the elastic down after she sizes it. One pink twirly skirt for you to dance in, Wena! Leg warmers coming up soon :D
Isn't it sweet?
I can't remember if I showed the leg warmers after I finished.....these are from that same beige sweater; so I got a cap, a shrug, and a pair of leg warmers out of one sweater :D by the way they fit my 12 year old niece perfectly and she put the cap, the shrug and the leg warmers all on tonight :D
What can I say? She discovered that if Mama talks on the phone, she can get into more 'stuff'. So here I am trying to take a pic of the 2 purses I bought, for the handles....lol.......a bargain at .99 each!.......and basic black shoes to wear with my slacks.........and she brings me the phone. In fact, she INSISTED I take the phone and leave the room. Wanda......CHILL!!
these are not in any order
she's too smart
we call her Preemie sometimes........because Cosmo is twice as big as she is. She's so......temperamental :D Daddy's little girl,lol.........Cosmo is mine; that's why he's soooo sweeeet! ha!
