31 Little Things – 27 and 28

I love this fabric so much.

You’re looking at a dress I made for Jess last year. I had to replace the strap on it because the one on there was cutting into her neck. But really this is just about the cute cherries. Pardon the wrinkles.

And this is the dress that I made for Jess a few weeks ago and was having difficulty with because of the straps. I finally got it all worked out and here she is wearing it.

I told her to show off the dress and she stuck out her belly. Silly girl. If you look closely at the first picture, you’ll see the black and white polka dot fabric. That’s what I used to make straps for both dresses. Jess now has 2 very cute summer dresses that she can wear without the strap cutting into her neck or falling off her shoulders.

Well my project is complete. I wasn’t able to use thae adorable tea set that was in the picture last week. Instead I used 2 of those lanterns I picked up at Rite Aid the other day. I liked them so much, I went back for a few more.

Anyhow, here’s the project. It’s a 3 tiered serving tray. The earthquake the other day tried to thwart my plans for having a new pretty serving tray, but everything is fine with it now.

It’s not exactly what I had in mind, but you wouldn’t believe how hard it was to find the “risers” I had in mind. Either way, I’m still pleased.

If you look at my picture for today, and think about it, there’s a good chance you’ll figure out exactly what this will become. I mean besides 3 plates and a little tea set. Stay tuned because it will be making its transformation over the next 24 to 48 hours.
