I don't mind sewing, but we don't have a designated craft/sewing room and sometimes I just don't feel like dragging the sewing machine out and taking over the dining room table. So whenever I can do an easy no-sew project, I jump at the chance. While searching for material for a Perry the Platypus tail, I came across some really cute pre-smocked material in Little Lady's favorite color: Purple. I just knew she needed a new summer dress!
- 1-2 yds of Pre-Smocked Fabric
- Strong Iron-On Adhesive (I prefer Stitch Witchery)
- Measuring Tape (Optional)
6. Fold your strips like shown in #1 above. Then fold them in half again with a strip of bonding in the middle so that all the raw edges are inside. Your finished 3" strip will make ~ 3/4" strap. I used pins again to hold everything in place while I ironed them.
Rosey Posey put her photography skills to the test and took some great photos of Little Lady and her new no-sew dress:
Little Lady absolutely loves her new dress and I was able to make it in a couple of hours (probably would have been less if I weren't taking pics ;) ).
Like this idea? Pin it!!
