You've Been Featured - 1

Today I am featuring Nikki from mummy's dress

She does some fantastic work, and showcases these on her blog.  I love upcycling clothes and I have found some great inspiration from this lady, she makes upcycling look so effortless and trendy!  She takes some great photos which help showcase her tutorials.  I have chosen today to show you her 15 minute Bandana Dress.  Here is the direct link to her post on her blog: Bandana Dress Tutorial

The photos basically explain what you have to do, without having to use too many words!

Step 1 - iron bandana's {which didn't get done before taking the photo}
Step 2 - place the two right sides facing each other.  Pin together at the sides and sew.
Step 3 - Fold down the top {make sure the 100% cotton writing is at the top}, iron and sew.
Step 4 - Thread elastic.
Step 5 -  Attach x2 one metre ribbon at the front and sew a loop at the back.
Step 6 - Thread ribbon.
Make a Bow.
So, that's how you turn a square bandana into a dress in less than 15 minutes.

Isn't that tutorial so great, why not pop over to her blog to see what other wonderful work Nikki has done.
