Upcycled Dresses

I've fallen in love! Fallen in love with making these cute dresses that is! Using shirts that I've collected and making them into dresses! I am using a pattern from Lil Blue Boo The Sienna Dress Pattern.  I started making these for my daughter and just couldn't stop! 
The first dress I made was "Drama" from a Drama Club t-shirt from Rolla High School.  It fits my daughter perfectly both in comment and in size! I love the generous sizing of these dresses and the flexibility of the pattern.  It is easy to adjust everything from the skirt to the sleeves!
I had so much fun I decided to buy a license to make the dress and sell them. I will be selling them through both Hyena Cart and Etsy. Keep an eye out! No one dress is the same!

I made this messenger bag - with two reversible flaps for a trade! The wonderful lady I made it for picked out the big flower print and the Amy Butler medallion print...I decided that I didn't want to put them together on a reversible flap so I made two! I hope she likes them!!
The messenger bag itself is black with a black on black print interior. There are pockets on the inside and one each on the front and back exterior of the bag. The adjustable strap is made from cotton webbing.
The flaps are reversible and really she is getting 4 different bags! I love how it turned out and hope she does too!!

A custom needle roll set - trade for some yummy yarn! I will have to get pictures of the yarn up soon. This lucky lady actually ended up with 2 double-pointed needle rolls instead of one...yup I made a mistake when making the first roll. I was looking at the measurements in my notebook for the crochet hook roll instead of the dp needle roll. So I made a second roll that will really fit dp needles....and then decided to make a matching zip pouch for her too!

Refresh and Renew!

That is the theme for Thursday's stocking at Alchemy!

New designs and old ones available this month. If anyone has a new E-Reader and wants to keep it safe, I've designed a nice padded sleeve to slip it into.

Using Heather Ross'es Mermaid fabric this sleeve will fit a Kindle, Nook, or other E-Reader that is less than 9.25" long and 7" wide. Slips right in with or with out a cover.
Wonderful modern ovals in bright pinks, oranges, greens and yellow make this sleeve pop! Fully padded with snap closure. There is padding between the snap base and the interior of the sleeve so there is nothing to scratch you E-Reader.

The "Molly" Purse has been redesigned for the new year! This is a wonderful envelope style purse that will fit all the essentials. Strap is removable so you can easily slip this purse in a briefcase, diaper bag, or knitting bag.
