You may not remember - but last year for Halloween I created a boutique outfit for my youngest daughter that got rave reviews! I have become hooked on appliques and decoupaging clothing to create that one-of-a-kid look. Here is an outfit I just finished. The applique was drawn by me and hand sewn (after the iron on procedure) to the shirt. I also made a matching bow complete with coordinating button. The tights and skirt were purchased to complete the outfit! The fabric was purchased at a local Salem shop. The whole outfit cost less than $30 - that included a handmade shirt and bow, tights and skirt! Keep an eye out for her holiday outfit next month!
I have always loved handmade. I grew up making my presents for people - and still do! I have taught my children to make their gifts as well. There is always so much more though and love that goes into creating something special for someone. I am a mom of 2 girls and own my own biz - Sea Glass Things. I have been collecting & designing sea glass and shipwreck posttery jewelry, art, home decor and wearables for 13+ years. It is for the love of all handmade that I have started this blog.... in hope of bringing the simple joy of a handmade way of life to others.
