Here is my latest fabric collage. I have wanted to incorporate this doll dress into a fabric collage for a long time. I actually transferred the tiny picture to the dress and then hand stitched tatting and tiny buttons to the picture over a year ago. It is a picture of a little girl beside a chair with her favorite doll all dressed in white. There is a tiny doll bib that I attached to the dress and made a pocket out of it. From the pocket I draped a tiny pink pearl necklace. Perhaps you can see (it's awfully tiny!) that the little girl in the picture has on a pearl necklace. I used lots of vintage trims and old fabrics. The lacy piece on top of the ticking is an old dresser doily. The coffee dyed it up great.
I am headed to Virginia early on Thursday morning to visit my grandchildren. June 1st is little Ryan's third birthday. The festivities begin next Saturday. What fun!
Also, while I am in Virginia I am going to visit my favorite store, Lucketts General Store, located in Lucketts, Virginia about 7 miles north of Leesburg. It has been a favorite place of mine to visit and shop for years. They are having a spring sale next weekend! Shabby and chic!!
