Yay! It’s time to announce the winners of the Vintage-Patch Giveaway! :)
But first, check out this quickie puppy refash I did! Douglas is a tiny little guy with not much fur. This means that when I take him outside he gets all shivery and cold. I decided to make a little something for him. ;)
A Warm & Cozy Puppy! :)
All I did was cut a sleeve off a shirt from my “To Be Refashioned” bin, added leg holes, and Ta-da! :) This is an extremely rough prototype of future puppy clothes that I plan on making from leftover scraps for the little guy. :)
Alright, without further ado…the winners of the Vintage-Patch Giveaway are…
The suspense is killing you, isn’t it?
I’ve emailed the winners, and will be dropping their patches in the mail asap! :)
Thanks so much to Adelaide of Vintage-Patch for providing her awesome patches for this giveaway. If you didn’t win (heck, even if ya did!), I hope you’ll all check out their website and order some fab patches of your own! :)
Thrift Score Thursday failed to happen this week. Puppy ownerdom has been realllllly time-consuming! Don’t fret! The puppy is settling in nicely, and I’m getting back to my old productive self! :) But, if you’re really deeply interested, my best find of the week was a Bialetti Stove Top Espresso Maker for $3. Exciting, right? (meh)
Some of you guys might remember this post from about a month ago when I scored a big bag of stuff at the $1 a Pound Goodwill.
While there, I scored this dress:
Here it is again:
Alright. This dress is just a smidge too big and way more than a smidge too beige! I decided I wanted to dip dye it, but I didn’t want any of the beige to remain. Now, I could have just dyed it once one color, then dip dyed the bottom half, but I was feeling
lazy adventurous and decided to try something new! :)
Two dyes, both alike in dignity in my fair kitchen, where we lay our scene!
Do you see where I’m going here? I wanted the top part of the dress to be green, and the bottom to be brown.
So, I prepared 2 dye baths…
And I added my dress!
I left my dress in its bath for about an hour, then gave it a good rinse & dry.
I wasn’t done yet! I still needed to take it in, which I did like so:
Cut off the leftovers!
I pressed my new dress, and now it’s back and un-beiged! :)
It’s chilly. Put on a sweater!
The bottom is definitely a little wonky-looking, but I decided it was wearable for a night of comedy at Trustus Theatre. I reviewed their newest production, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche for Jasper Magazine. If you’re interested, you can read my review right here.
Margaret is my secret identity.
