Creative Life Week 33 - Lavender Dresses and Car Fresheners

It is dress distribution time again in another 6 weeks for my Dress A Girl Australia charity work and in less than 3 months, it is time for Dress A Girl Australia's Christmas bags so I need to come up with new ideas to make to raise more funds. And this is what I just did for my creative life week 33.

Wrapped in a dress are small lavender bags and car fresheners. Depending on how long the lavender and/or car fresheners would expire, they are easy to replace. All you have to do is remove each item from the dress and replace with new ones.

Dress measures about 11cms x 14cms long. Dress A Girl logo is printed on an inkjet iron-on fabric sheet and I had them ironed-on in the front panel of each dress. 

Dress A Girl Lavender dresses sell at $6.50 each and Car Fresheners sell for $5.00 each. Postage is $0.60 per item and both are available in my online shop.


Another Fabric Doll Pennant with different button head expressions

I love making buttons so I thought I would make another one of my fabric doll pennant. This doll pennant has different sets of button heads. A pennant with a replaceable button head to express the mood you are in at any given day. You attached your picture on the applique flower and write your name on the bubble talk.

Sizes are similar to the first doll I created and posted here (blog title "Fabric Pennant Doll"). Pocket at the back of the pennant for button heads to be stored. Available in my on-line shop at $39.95 plus postage of $10.00. Comes with a bonus dowel with stopends for easy hanging on the wall.

Fabric Doll Pennant

Am not really a doll person but I like the idea of paper dolls where you can easily changed what it is wearing. This creation of mine was born out of my fondness for buttons. I use buttons to express my mood at any time during the day. And using the concept of paper dolls where you change what it wears, this doll has a permanent attire but replaceable heads using buttons. You changed the button head depending on how you feel during any given day. And all you have to do is remove the button and replace it with a new one and attached it in the space where the head is supposed to be. The button is held by a hidden magnet. 
The pennant measures about 41cms x 29cms(widest point) and the body of the doll measures about 15cms x 9cms made of recycled fabric. The applique flower has a diameter of 9cms and at the center is a space for a picture of the owner of the pennant and whose mood is being expressed using a 57mm button. The bubble talk has the message of 'Hello, my name is ----" where you write down your name and pointing to the picture. It also comes with a handmade ceramic heart measuring about 4cms x 2.5cms.

The fabric doll pennant comes with 5 free buttons and is kept in a pocket found at the back of the pennant.
The 5 free buttons are 'I'm the boss' when you feel like being bossy, 'I'm a big sister' if you feel like being nice to a younger brother, a happy face, princess and 'whatever' when you are annoyed. 

This pennant is available in my on-line shop for $39.95 plus $10.00 postage.
