Elsa's dress part 4

Morning to all my Friday visitors.
Are you regular readers and followers or Friday FREEBIEers?
or have you come to see Elsa’s finished frozen ribbon dress?

So here it is.......…

Well what do you think?

I want to add more silver snowflakes, but Mollie was impatient to wear it for her secret party….
…..which turned out to be a Tea party for me!!!


The train (cape) was just what Mollie had wanted, I have so many pictures of her looking backwards at it, that I became concerned she was going to fall over!

To find out how I made the snowflakes and join in with this weeks Friday FREEBIE click here
Thank you all so such super comments, they were much read.

We are in the process of updating our website, it is starting to look different.

Part 3 of Elsa's frozen dress

The dress was moving along.
The idea in my head was beginning to come to life.
Read part one here and part two here

It was looking like a dress.
Sewing the bodice to the skirt was easy.
Mollie had her first experience at being “pinned” into a dress,
but she still could not stand still!

Read more about the making of the dress here.

Pop back tomorrow and you will see one very happy little girl.
We have a new challenge starting today

Go on join in this week.

Frozen Elsa's dress from ribbons

say helo to wednesday 405 
If you missed yesterday story, you can find it here .

So you think Mollie sweet talked me into making her dress.
Well you would be right.

She sooooo wanted an Elsa dress, that I said yes.

The key to the dress was the bodice, and to me that was the easy bit!


It looked just like ribbon weaving – well sort of……
…..and the only ribbon to use would be “BLING” here
I used Silver and Tropic colours

For step by step instructions click here 
Pop back tomorrow for the next stage of the dress making

Morning ribbon folks

It is unusual for me to lay the ribbons out like this to take photos,
but I wanted to make sure that ALL the ribbons could be seen.

Specially the Lil’ Sister, Middle Sister and Big Sister ribbons.
When I saw all the sister ribbons laid out for the photo shoot, I knew I had a new idea.

Alien scrapbook

say helo to wednesday 405

I think I told you that Mollie had asked me to design a ribbon for her mummy.

moon white_shop

She tells Rachie she “loves her to the moon and back” every night before bed.
Little Mollie could not wait for the Alien ribbon to arrive from the factory.
She would ask me everyday!

alien hello wednesday

When it arrived, she was so excited to play with the ribbons and made this scrapbook for school.
Her teacher took Rachie to one side and said that Mollie was telling everyone that she had thought of the ribbon.

Ummmm but she did.
