WWOYWW comes every Wednesday to remind us that we really should be tidying ready for the big reveal but instead I'm up to my eyes in fabric sewing, not only quilts, but fancy dress costumes for my little grandees. This one is for my 5 year old Brighton Bell who wants to be "Merida" from the Disney Film "Brave". I think Merida looks just like a mediaeval Princess in all her pictures and I think the film is set in Scotland.
The bodice is almost finished and a lovely frilly voile petticoat ready to fluff out the skirt.
Oooh, I am enjoying making these little outfits and so wish I'd had them to dress up in when I was little.
I've made a velvet hooded cape, lined in gold
with a medallion fastener at the neck
I must confess that I am really pleased with the medallion I made
from these super blingy cheap trimmings and sequins
I tacked some to a disc of grungeboard, converting the straight braids to curves. I then squirted a layer of Glossy Accents over it all producing substantially solid medallions to use on the head dress and as a fastener at the neck of the cape.
I've also made capes for two little Snow Whites and bows for their hair.
Now here are my orders for the day...
First, make sure you take a look at Julia's blog, stamping ground, to find out what WOYWW is all about. In fact why not join in this weekly whirlwind around the crafty desks of the world!
Also, take a peek at my previous post and if you'd like one of the little pocket crosses, I've still got a few left. Just let me know but the instructions are there if you want to make some for yourself or your friends.
Finally, don't forget to pop over to Lillybo Quilts to catch up on the progress and see the lovely cards WOYWWer SueH has made to give with each quilt.
One quilt has arrived and more are on their way so it's getting really exciting.
