Paper Dresses Wall Art

A few years ago a friend of mine gave me tons of patterns.  I decided that I did not want to use any of the patterns for sewing, however, I had an art project in mind that I thought could work.  Well at the time, my inspiration only led me to this...
A mod podged background of pattern pieces.
I thought adding a little dress or two would be a fun idea since the patterns are for dresses.  So I created a little pattern on plain paper, then transferred them to pattered paper.

I added a few details.

One sweet little dress added.
 Then I embellished a ribbon and added it as a frame and applied a little button in each corner.

This week I am linking to:

  1. Oh my goodness, how adorable! What a great idea, so clever! And easy enough that if you kept the templates you could make new dresses for every season.

    I'm so glad you stopped by my blog (via So Many Ways) otherwise I might never have found you! Such an ambitious goal to blog every day, woo! At the moment, I'm struggling to do one a week. You go gurrl!


  2. Your project turned out beautifully. I really love it!
