Darling Dresses

I LOVE using tracing paper, so any excuse to trace it up makes me happy. This project is a swap I created at the behest of @RyeRye, who is such a great group founder. I just love her ideas and whever I am stuck for inspiration she is always there to give me a little pick me up :)

These little dresses have many different uses. I created them as cards, so my partner can use them as a card, or pin them up in their craft space as a little clothesline decoration.

After cutting out all the little dresses I cut out aprons and pockets and sewed everything with my sewing machine. Then Inked everything with my favorite Distress Ink (Vintage Photo).

I ran out of zip dry so I used Glossy Accents to attach the little flowers and the bling centers.

There is an awesome box template that all these cards fit right into, it will be posted above since blogger can only handle 5 pics at once.

Also I will post the link to the swap and the templates so you can make these yourself!

the cutest part is the pockets on teh front are open on the top so you can stick a cute note in them!

Three cheers for tracing paper! I need to use it more. And the sewing machine too. I just adore the stitching you did on these. Beautiful!

aw, thanks so much, I LOVE Kraft cardstock, but feel it needs a little 'dressing up', LOL!
