One of my new year's resolutions was to get more organized & finally tackle some of those craft projects on the 'to do' list.
Over the weekend I decided to bust my fabric stash a bit & make something fun for my girl to wear!
I chose McCall's pattern # M6062
I made the top 'A' ...only deciding that the style of the sleeves on dress 'B' were better suited to our taste, so I switched 'em out easy-peasy. My girl wanted a pocket added so she could carry some small things around. I cut out a heart shape, sewed & turned it out, then appliqued it onto the front off center.
She was pretty happy with the results! She even changed before playing outside, so she wouldn't mess it up. Now that's love!
She showed her new frock to our bunny...who approved.
Also, she showed the suncatcher we made earlier to the bunny. Bunnies love crafts don't you know?
Finally she twirled. Maybe I'll look for more fabrics to make another seeing how she's so happy with it!
Well, it's already February... we'll see what I make next in my goal to cross more crafts off the list.
Step 4: Using any craft glitter in silver, shake some onto nail tips while they are still wet & let dry completely.
Step 5: Remove masking tapes & finally brush on a clear coating over entire nail to seal in the glitter & give a smooth finish.
This is currently my favorite way to paint my nails. I've seen other tutorials out there, but made improvements so that the tips are super sparkly without being too thick & dries more quickly since there are fewer polish layers. I use regular glitter vs. the glitter polish which I tried, but found more difficult to get a really really sparkly effect. Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed the tutorial for giving yourself a glitter french manicure & try it out for yourself!
