Dress Ornaments • Becky Shander
by Becky Shander
Stamp dress images onto plain paper. Cut out the dress silhouettes (these will be your templates). Place the templates on top of tea-dyed chenille fabric and then cut around the dress silhouette.
Embellish each dress with embroidery needle and thread. For these, ivory colored thread was used to add French knot detail around the center of the French knot roses. Machine sew vintage trim along bottom of each dress.
Type "pretty" and "sassy" onto paper, and then cut around each word and sew it to the batting base. Adhere the dress to the top of the base with craft glue. Create mini hangers with wire. Clip the batting to the wire hanger using mini clothespins.
