Don’t know if I’ll leave it there, but for the moment I love the look of milky light filtering through–like a window to the past.
My friend Teresa came up with the appliqued dress element. She’s very good at picking cool projects and booked a whole day to sew with me at the Scrap Exchange.
Another sewing partner from the Scrap, Karen, gave me the net from an old wedding dress. It made wonderful see-through pockets to hold the vintage doll clothes and other bits of memorabilia like button cards and my sewing valentines.
Where ever this piece ends up hanging, it will remind me of three important things I’ve learned from my sewing:
Creative friends make it better. They affirm, inspire and nudge you in directions you wouldn’t have taken otherwise.
Believe in the happy accident. If doll clothes and net find their way to the top of your sewing pile, maybe they were meant to be together.
And finally, don’t forget why we do this–make what makes you happy.
So what’s making you happy in the sewing room this week?
