Lot's of progress to report today. The top to Butterick 4228 is coming along. Here's a shot of the top zipper.
I know, it looks a lot like the skirt zipper! But honest, it's two different things. I hope to complete this one sometime tomorrow. I already love it!
I've also been working on my decoupage notions box. Making some real progress there as well. I'm enjoying doing this, as it's a little different from my daily routine.
I also promised apeak at my garage sale treasures from last week. I went to about seven sales last Friday, and only bought things at two. At the first I got a duvet and sham set covered with ribbon embreoidery, in really good shape. Not sure yet what I'm going to do with it.
At that sale, I also got yet another "mom jumper". I really love these for restyling. The possibilities are almost endless.
The second sale at which I purchased yielded a non-sewing treasure! For $5 I got this pretty wooden box (which I do not plan to alter in any way!).
But the best part was inside the box. A myriad of little tools and cutters. I plan to use these in my paper crafting and jewelry making. I was so psyched that the contents were included in that price of $5.00!
So, there's the booty for the week. I'm excited to see what I can do with the ribbon embroidery stuff. Any suggestions?
