Two dishtowels, two yards of grosgrain ribbon, this tutorial, and ten minutes later...
I found the dishtowels in the Dollar Spot at Target. They were 2/$2.50. Cheap and easy! The best part about this dress:no hemming-the seams are already finished. Yay!
(The towels were the perfect length for a dress, but they were kind of skinny...even for my skinny minnie two-year-old. Might want to try some wider towels for an older child.)
You can bet that I'll be making more of these in the future.
Next up on our Valentine's Day craft list, these fun salt dough ornaments and maybe a heart garland to spruce up the mantle. Thanks Mary Catherine for the cute ideas!
