During my time at home I started a few projects, some of which I have not completed. [redecorating my room] but there were a few that I did.
Distressing My Old Jewelry Box
So I haven't finished this one completely yet... I still need to paint the knobs so I can put it back together. But I took this very kiddy looking jewelry box and sanded the designs off and a bit more, to get a slightly distressed look. I plan to paint the knobs black and put the jewelry box together again, but I think it looks nice so far.
Making a Cute Shirt and Scarf Out of a Dress
So I took this old dress I've had for years, but never had worn and switched it up! I cut the bottom section off to turn into a baby doll top, and used the left over scraps to make a really cool scarf. :)
With the help of a sowing machine, some sissors, and time. This was a quite simple project.
Super Awesome Cape? I say, YES!
I made this cape! It's kind of like shawl....
So I took a really long dress I had and cut off the bottom to make it into a summer dress. Adorable! But I had all these left over scraps.... another scarf??? Nah! I decided to be brave and try making a winter cape.
So now I have a dress and a cape to go with it! There are a few minor adjustments that can still be made... such as a bit more hemming and stuff. But with the nice lacey bottom it gave it a complete. Since I didn't start off with a circle like most material asks for, I used some ribbon as a draw string to make the collar. Whoot, whoot! And I'm a beginner, you can do it too!
