Dressed Up Appliances

I finally got around to finishing the next two projects.  I first must apologize for the lousy photo quality.  I had some camera trouble, as in my mom wouldn’t let me use her nice one, something about not putting it away when I was finished.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Skirt
  • Lamp shade cover
  • Sewing machine cover
  • doll makeover
  • dress
  • scrunchies
  • head bands
  • costume
  • bag
  • vest recon

Three down, seven to go.  The next one should be up tomorrow, either that or some shopping scores.  I am going to Goodwill tomorrow, hope I find something good.
