Hairball bought Gwennie a dress a long time ago at a thrift store. It has pineapples on it, and its so cute. I love the shape of the dress so I decided that I would attempt to make one like it. Yesterday we went to Joanns and picked up some fabric. Gwennie chose doggy fabric, then I saw some wiener dog fabric that was super cute. I bought one yard of each and some notions, rick rack and a zipper.
I didn't have time to sew them last night but this morning I made a pattern (using the old dress, and adding length on to it.) It took me about 3 hours to cut out and sew the two dresses. I added pockets on the front of them, as well. It was a lot of fun. I have some red white and blue star batiked fabric as well (clearance from July 4th!) I can not wait to cut into that. I want to make Rhayn a skirt to match Gwen. I saw so many fabrics that would be fun to make, and all in all it cost me about $5 for the fabric and notions. Maybe I could make these and sell them on Etsy? I have been toying with the idea of making something to sell on there for a while. I would not have picked the brown dog fabric , but Gwen would not let go of it! She kept saying "My goggy bank et!"
I am feeling much better today. Maybe it is that we are on our way to G'Rat's tonight because it was Gavin guy's birthday yesterday. Or maybe it is just that the funk has left. All I know is that today I feel darn good.
