A Fun Saturday!
First, I was able to finish off a piece for a client (last piece for the year!). I then put together the red Burda turtle dress. It is on the dress form now for the skirt to hem to drop before trimming and hemming. I'll finish this up on Monday.
I also went out to the library and shopping with my daughter this afternoon. We found shoes for her Christmas dress and a belt for the Burda turtle:
We then came home to play in the workroom. The first thing we did was to fix her black flats. One of the plain center of one of the flowers came off and was lost. With a little glue and two buttons, we fixed the shoes and they're cuter than before.
We then went on to making an artful sort of t-shirt. She loves the screen printed and embellished t-shirts in the stores, but doesn't like the price tags. We started with an old white t-shirt and added some screen printing, fused some lace and finished it with some gold glitter finish.
She had a lot of fun and enjoyed the process. There were some things that weren't perfect about the screen printing, but she didn't care. It was interesting to note that she was more interested in the overall process and effect rather than if everything was exactly perfect. I think that sometimes as adults we can't see the forest for the trees and focus on the minute details of a project rather than just enjoying the process of creating art.
My happy girl, which means we're both happy!
Parting Shot: Pattern Piece. Hmm, I'm not sure DKNY originally designed a cat shaped piece for this pattern.
