Did you know that normally on Saturday's I do a "treat" post - some sort of food. But last Saturday I snuck in a craft instead - and now I'm doing it again today. Apparently I need to make more treats to show off - no problem! In the meantime, here we go.....
So what skills did I want to try out?? Bias Tape and Pin Tucking (if that's what it's called.) Ever since I saw this post on MADE, I wanted to try making bias tape. So I did - look at it in all it's glory - I'm so proud!
Then I opened up the bias tape and sewed a strip along the hem to add color down there. I was planning on appliqueing a Shamrock, but then I loved it plain with green trim for everyday wear and didn't want to make it holiday specific. So I made a shamrock out of bias tape for a hairclip. But holding it up on the dress I thought it was cute. I ended up safety-pinning it to the dress, so it's removable.
