gozion writes: aprons, aprons, aprons.
making pockets for garments that dont have them. i need pockets! havent started yet, but bought sweaters at the salvation army store for $1 each! some just for the lovely buttons, but i want to practice now [but some are great, so i start wi. somethhing else] making pockets cut from the sweater. it seems to me that i can cut a pocket from other fabric, sew it First to the sweater. then cut it out. i dont know. anybody know>?
but aprons aprons aprons~am having small exhibit/sale of them in may at a nice gallery, can have my other drawings on the wall behind them, am working like crazy on them, & now starting to work on/with dolls. veering over there too, since i mean to include just a few child's & dolls aprons in this exhibit/sale. so now off on another tangent:: making dolls, repairing old weird broken dolls. etc.

jag256 writes: I will be using up lots of fabric remants, trims and laces to make doll clothes for my granddaughter. Her other grandmother had 2 of her own dolls refurbished and asked if I'd like to create a new wardrobe for these special dolls.
We are looking forward to presenting this joint effort to our favorite 3 year old on her birthday!
