I have been truly enjoying all of the submissions so far for the Grand Giveaway! You all have such fun ideas for names, and such interesting stories about what you named your own cars. Thank you so much to those of you who have joined in on the contest, and for those of you who have not done so yet, be sure to pop on over and put in your entry by Friday!
Sadly, with the sun shining through the windows on to all the laundry waiting for me to fold it up, I simply can't spend much time here today. (Secretly I love the soft feel of clothes all cozy warm from the dryer, and the smell of fresh laundry!)
Before I run off to fold however, I did want to share some creative goodness that I whipped up last night while the babooshkas were sleeping.
This cute little chalkboard was picked up at the thrift for 59-cents! A quick coat of paint and a little personalization and it is now a great sign that will be hung by vintage ribbon next to the girls' bedroom door.
This cute little outfit took a total of 90 minutes to plan, cut out, and sew. I didn't use a pattern really. I did use the tutorial for the twirly skirt from House on Hill Road as a guide for the skirt (though I altered it a bit). The top is based off of the basic pillowcase dress, only shorter and with a little added trim.
What is even better is the fact that this entire outfit cost less than $2 since those fabrics were snagged off of the discount table at the fabric store!
I am also going to be stalking Sew, Mama, Sew for the Girl's Clothes Tutorial Round-Up, and the Boy's Clothes Tutorial Round up (friendly stalking of course)! Such cute, fun, and easy ideas to help me in my destashing efforts!!
What crafts do you do? Sew? Paint? Knit? I'd love to hear it! Also - what projects do you love to do to help destash a bit?
