I added a line of fuschia velvet ribbon that goes over one shoulder. To this, I stitched handmade fabric flowers, embroidered wool felt leaves, and "vintage pearl" beads. The beads were from a broken necklace bought at a thrift store - an excellent source for older and unusual beads.
So, that's another piece of clothing ready for the craft shows I will do this year. I'm only planning 4 between now and Christmas, but I want to have lots of stock. If the articles don't sell, at least they should draw people in to my table so that I can tell them about my alterations business. And hopefully, I will get a good number of sales as well.
My next project - finish upcycling a little girl's jean jacket. Another thrift store find that now has some major bling! Stay tuned.....
And, as promised, a picture of the clapper/point presser my Dad made for me. I love it!
