Amazing Organization Video and a Dress
Busy night, last night. I started crocheting my first Barbie dress last night, while watching tv clips on YouTube. Somewhere around 2am, I misplaced my crochet hook. One minute it was in my hand and the next it was not. I felt my higher power was telling me to go to bed. I did find the hook about 30 mins later when I turned on the little fan I keep on the floor next to my bed. *Clang, clang, clang*. The hook had fallen into the fan. I went to bed, anyway, and woke around 5am and started working on my dress again. YouTube was still playing on my tv. One of the videos I watched was a "5 in 1 Craft Room Tour" by Lisa Pullano. It was my first time seeing one of her videos and I was thoroughly impressed. I wanted to share it with you because she does an excellent job explaining where she bought everything in her room. There were quite a few pieces I feel would work great for our doll/accessories storage. She tried to keep it cost effective by using pieces from Ikea, Target and Amazon. This was the only video of hers I watched, but I have a feeling she has many others. It's 19 mins long and well worth watching. Her makeup supply is incredible! I can't imagine anyone needing that much makeup, but it sure looks impressive. Let me know what you think.
Here is the dress I finished this morning. I'm getting much faster at doing this.
Here is a picture of the dress pattern I followed.....sort of. It is not exactly like the dress in the book. I'm learning how to fake it, and my confidence is building. It is however, the closest I've come to reproducing a pattern in the book. My ladies are very happy. They are finally getting some of my creations.
