Today's guest is Emily of Nap Time Creations. Emily had the same idea for a sewing series as Once Upon a Thread, but didn't know of OUT (great minds...). Through another blogger, she emailed me and I asked her if she would still share her children's book project idea on OUT since she had already worked so hard on it (just check out all that circular sewing!). This is a book I hadn't heard of, which is one of the things that I enjoy about this series, being introduced to new children's literature. Welcome, and thank you for sharing with us today, Emily!
I used this book to create a playful garden dress and had a fun little photo shoot recreating the book.
Around the arm holes I made bias tape from the black fabric.
I created the polka dot fabric by sewing black fabric circles all over the skirt before sewing the dress together.I hope you enjoyed this book and dress as much as we have. A big thanks to Katy for letting me be a part of this series and I'd love for you to come over and check out my blog Nap-Time Creations... you can find lots more sewing and craft ideas for kids there.
Thanks, Emily! Come back Monday for more Chapter 4 of Once Upon a Thread, it's a real page turner!
Beautiful dress and yes my son loves this book too! We discovered this book at the library and my son immediately loved it (there were holes in the pages prompting for the next page and the glorious butterfly that pops out of the page at the end is an absolute delight)!ReplyDelete
