Something has been brewing in my head for a while now.
I have been fascinated with Karen Griska's Selvage Blog. She has showcased so many wonderfully creative things made with a piece of fiber that we have thrown away for years. I am in awe at the creativity which comes across her path.
Recently I found a very cute doll form. It was just an interesting item that caught my fancy. I brought the form home, and even though I am not a garment sewer, it has been fun to look at the form and think about how to use it. But a vision kept coming into my mind. Can you guess what it was??
I don't have a very large selvage stash, but surely there would be enough for this. And I can always cut some selvages from my fabric stash ;-)
And so it grew......
Until we went from this............
I found some pretty little buttons at the fabric store yesterday, and just had to add it to the dress.
And if you will bear with me for just one more selvage project.
My dear sweet husband and I have never had the same cell phones. But recently we both ended up with the same phone and holster. So every once in a while we are looking at a phone and asking "is this mine??", or "have you seen the holster for my phone?"
Well as I was playing with the selvages, I thought I would try to make something to distinguish my phone holster from his.
This is what I started with.
Betcha he won't be taking that one to the office.
