Ok, I totally copied this one- not my original idea! But I saw this at an antique fair a little over a month ago. So many things were so beautiful, but I couldn't bring myself to buy anything knowing I could attempt to make it myself. So I made this ornament, and then made one of my own design: Project cost: $2 per ornament.
I also saw some gorgeous cake stands and pedestal bowls at the antique fair. So I went to the second hand store and found some pretty silver and porcelain to glue together!And here's one finished! I didn't get around to the other... maybe next weekend. Total project cost: $3.
And here's one that's been sitting around my craft room for a year! I bought this fabric because I just fell in love with the printed lace on it. I figured I'd make B a dress with it. Then I found a 2T onesie in her closet. Where did that come from? Project cost: maybe $10?
onesie, and sewed a skirt to it. Then added a yo-yo and orange button. I loved this dress and B got a lot of compliments at church. And a few requests to spin :)
Then I was at JoAnn's one random weekend that I had a really great coupon. Searching through the remnants (that's where I get most of my fabrics) I came across this gorgeous fabric- a full yard of it. And then I knew- it was meant for my footstool.
Waiting for the paint to dry was the longest part of this process! But check out that fabric's texture! Amazing!
I'm so SO happy with how it turned out. I decided to put it in B's room, since it kind of matches what we've got going on in there. Total cost of this project: less than $15. It was a fabric remant-50% off, and then I had a 50% off anything coupon bringing my fabric cost to $8 and some cents for $35 per yard fabric! The stool was $5 and I had everything else on hand.
And she loves it too. We call it her princess stool and she uses it to climb into her bed.
There are tons of other things that I started but haven't finished. What a great weekend! I've really missed sitting in my craft room for hours on end.
