What's on my mind today???
Well, I want to tell you all about what I did with that stained green baby dress...
I took Melissa's advice, and went with some flowers growing out of the pocket... thanks for the idea!
So what exactly did I do?
First I used some iron on interfacing to attach fabric shapes to the dress. Of course they were strategically positioned to cover the stains - after all, that WAS the point of the exercise, remember?
Then got carried away in the moment and forgot to keep taking progress photos...
But basically I embroidered around the edge of each piece.
Added some buttons to the centre of each flower.
Worked some blanket stitch around the neck.
And some running stitch along the hem.
I couldn't help but add a little heart.
Ooooh... and I added some curly green stems...
And here's the finished dress:
Want to see my Little One wearing it?
She wasn't very good at lying still for the camera, but I did manage a few shots:
