I’m very happy to be co-hosting Share It Sunday 47 with Rose from Fine Craft Guild!
This week I have posted 2 tutorials! The first one is for a fabric diary cover. It’s made from scraps of fabric left over from a previous project and it has a pocket for a pen too! Although I made mine for my Moleskine diary (which is fine, just a bit boring!), you could just as easily make one to cover a journal or a notebook.
The other tutorial I posted shows how to crochet shell edging. It’s one of my favourite crochet edgings and it’s very easy to do!
Now I’m looking forward to seeing what you have been making this week!

This Week’s Party Feature: …
Adjustable Dress Form Stand
Everyone who has a dress form has had Anna’s problem, at least to some degree. I laughed out loud when I saw her solution and it’s just so brilliant.
How to Make Your Own Adjustable Dress Form Stand
For more pictures and the how-to make your own adjustable dress form stand, hop over to Tea and a Sewing Machine.
In my home, we use our dress form to showcase favorite clothing, pieces we have just bought, ‘what to wear tomorrow’, jewelry, handbags, cardigans, and hats we have no time to put away, plus anythings seasonal/whimsical… What we have discovered that if we keep it loaded but balanced, it stays put well. A bit of weight seems to help stability. We also put it in a corner, so that bumping into it is less likely. Nonetheless, if you have no space to leave your dress form out and on display, Anna’s solution is perfect: pack it up and go. Or, to leave Anna’s solution on permanent display, as with a real Christmas tree, I’d put a skirt over that ‘ugly plastic’. I am thinking of some nice and drapey velvet at the bottom, which would add to the bottom weight of it.
