Sewing room update

My sewing room is in constant redo, I start feeling cluttered and have to go through and organize all over again.

I am posting some pictures of what I have been up to in the room.

Confession: These were taken about a month ago, so now I am cramped again with projects needing to be done!!!

Sewing Room

I have been updating my sewing room to be more pleasing to my eyes and less clutter.

Plus, I have added a few machines and needing a different layout of the room.

Here is a couple of before's

You will notice I had my ironing board on my treadmill. Lol! Obvious place for it right.

This corner by my small closet was a little cluttered. {Still is at moment, but getting better.}

Here my picture looks okay, but of course I had it looking good for camera!

My next post I will be showing my new set up.

Vintage Pillowcase Dress

I finished a dress today for my grand daughter.
I bought some estate sale pillow cases from an antique shop.
This is first one finished.
I cut the dress to approximate length I wanted and cut in sleeves from top and used single fold bias tape.
I folded down 1/4" and then 3/4". I cut two pieces of elastic about 6" long and inserted.
I then made ties out of gross grain ribbon and attached at top.

I have been pressing a rose from my best friends funeral this past year.
She was only 49 and died in a house fire. Her daughter, 12 at the time, is my Godchild.
I remembered the flowers just before Christmas and made this for her to keep by her bed.

It is a simple frame with craft paper backing. I used craft glue to place the rose.
I hope because it is dried, the craft with last.

I just wanted to share this idea on my blog in hopes someone else might find a use for this idea.
