Is it really January?

Well , the partys over, Ive finally had time to mop the floor & clean up all the mess. It was such a fun day-short, but fun! Thank you so much for all the well wishes! I havent had time lately to get with the whole Valentines crafting. But i thought these were kind of Valentinesy these pot holders. They are made of wool felt-penny style. YOu can find them here if your interested. This is what has been keeping me so distracted:
A friend from Church asked me to make her a "dedication" gown out of her original vintage wedding dress!
It was kinds of a challenge...to put it mildly.
With the matching bonnet.
I kind of took off up into space with this one. She wanted blue removable bows. She gave me a pattern to go by, but it was so difficult to figure out, I thought I would just wing my own version. She wanted me to use all her vintage materials, so off came all the lace off her gown, and overlay. I didnt think it would be so difficult to do with out proper yardage, there were so many dress seams. All in all Im really happy with the way it turned out. Most of all- I hope shes happy to see it!!!! Theres no going back now, her wedding dress is chopped up into smithereens!!!!!

I think you did a great job with this project and I love the sentiment. When my daughter got married, I took my wedding dress apart and made her a ring bearer's pillow, garter, and a bunch of other things to remind her that she was made in love. I've saved a piece to make something for my son's wedding someday. I guess I'll have to save some for baby things, too. Thanks for sharing your project as I know how much work is involved.

You must have been so scared on that first cut of the siccors !

Itt looks amazing though, I'm sure that she will be thrilled. Good to have detachable bows, just in case it get's passed onto a baby girl.

I remember looking for a dress for Gwenny, the prices were shocking. Then a friend who did fashion design at college made me one up for a fraction of the price.
