Hi everyone! My name is Sarah Boyd and I am so excited to be blogging on LLB! I don’t have a blog of my own (one of these days), but am obsessed with reading different craft blogs! There are so many talented and generous (sharing ALL they create) Mama’s out there. One of my favorite project blogs is Lil Blue Boo. I have learned so much from Ashley and have never even met her! Her tutorials and patterns have encouraged me to take my sewing to the next level and to try new things.
January first she introduced the LBB/Dharma Trading Co. Design Challenge to all of her readers. I knew I had to enter…how fun! I have had a blast experimenting with her patterns. If you haven’t entered you should. There are a few days left to submit. Here are three of my submissions.
Chicken Nuggets Inspired Bubble Dress
With this dress I used the Recycled T-Shirt Halter/Tie Back Pattern and added a bubble skirt.
What a strange name for a dress…huh?
The dress was inspired NOT from the food chicken nuggets, but the goldfish. My daughter chose to name her 4 goldfish “Chicken Nuggets.” Thus the dress with old T-shirts, fabric from This and That from Japan and Recycled T-Shirt Halter/Tie Back Pattern was created. Sometimes I wish I could be inside that little head of hers!
I also used the Recycled T-Shirt Halter/Tie Back Pattern for the Mermaid Sea dress. I added ruffles all the way down pattern piece C. Other Materials Used:
Idye tie-dye in chartreuse and turquoise, white knit fabric, cotton printed fabric, rhinestones, Mermaid cut from Michael Miller Sea Beauties and Pellon interfacing. I love the softness of the dress. I may have to make one for myself!
I think this one is my favorite. I love turning something old into something new!
I used LBB Recycled T-Shirt Ruffle Skirt/Skort pattern. I took one of my husband’s old golf shirts (it had a hole in it) and turned it into an outfit for my lil golfer!
