Little Crafty Bits

Starting to make & gather for some "little buttons."
In the process of dying an entire lot of kiddie tees & onesies all the colors of the rainbow.
Then I'm embellishing with rhinestones, buttons, ribbon, fabric appliques, embroidery, whatever!
This is a project I use to "fill-in the gaps" between the larger ones.
It's nice & easy.
There is a lot of room for creativity & it is instantly gratifying & fun.


I've always wanted to embellish a light switch. (Nerd alert!)
So when I found a random naked one in our "catch all" drawer, I got busy!
Before...
After! Ah...a pretty dress for my fashion passion!
I cut this image from an old Vogue.
I did this in about ten minutes. I cut the image and literally
slopped the mod podge on.
I guess you can kinda tell it was a rush job,
but I actually like the effect.
It no longer looks like a shiny fashion mag photo!


Here's to finding joy in little crafty bits!
PS: Just found this great post by Heather- Roundup: Using Old T-Shirts!
So many great ideas. I especially love that wreath.
Check-it out and make something! :)
