Another rainy day here, it has been bucketing down all day, so perfect for starting a new project. As I've joined Nancy's Heartstrings online class I've plenty of projects to choose from, I think there are six projects all up. This project is a little dress on a hanger, but as I'm still waiting for my little hangers to arrive, I decided instead to attach the dress to a vintage napkin and then attach this to a tote bag.
As the dress is supposed to be hung from a mini coathanger I decided to stitch mine on instead.
This is what I've done so far.
Just click on the photo for a closer look.
Sorry I'm not the greatest photographer.
The dress is cut from a remnant of a damask vintage table napkin.
The laces are pieces of coffee dyed vintage hankies.
I've added seed beads, pearls, old chippy mop buttons and a sash of aged seam binding ribbon at the waist.
I still have to stitch around the edge of the napkin and I think I'll attach a little heart pin (another of the class projects) to the top of the bag.
Will keep you posted with pics of the finished result.
Thanks for looking and have a lovely evening
