As promised, this is what I got up to with those fabrics.
A butterfly party outfit for one 2 year old birthday girl.
An applique design on front, and a little pair of tulle wings on back. The kind of wings you can't rip off easily (unlike the sweet blue and purple antler headband that was supposed to accompany it). This project was a real scrap buster and a great way to use up some of those old fabrics that meant a lot. I'll think about trying to make a tutorial for this if anyone's interested?
This project wasn't hard at all, and I was pleased with the outcome. As you can see, the birthday girl was happy too! And no, I didn't make the skirt. I couldn't go past a $10 bargain on this purple tulle skirt about a week out from the party. Just too much to get done if I hadn't snapped it up when I did.
Finally, these are just some of our butterfly decorations. They were inspired by this post and were a great way for the birthday girl to be involved in the handmade preparations. Needless to say we are now completely surrounded by these things stuck all over the house!
Enjoy everyone else's creatives spaces over at Kootoyoo :) and my absolute favourite one right here (I'm so excited about this one I can't wait!)
