I made a smock and participated in a swap

I made this smock top using some cute pond print fabric that I had bought for a project a few years ago, but never did anything with. My friend Alison sent me the link to the pattern - www.flickr.com/photos/suzdeth/tags/tutorial/. I changed it slightly by using vintage lace from a doily for the neck and straps instead of fabric. The project was for the Wardrobe Refashion pledge that I took. Below is a close up of the fabric which has lilies and lily pads, yellow and pink flowers and butterflies.

june-swap2I also just joined the group - Use What You Have which promotes using the supplies that you already have stashed away for crafts and sewing, rather than going out and buying new supplies. I just participated in my first ever swap through that group, which was really fun. The color theme was pink, which was really easy because I had alot of pink stuff. You're given a swap-mate and you check out their interest and find things that you have, that they might like. The idea is to pass on things that you aren't using to someone else who might be able to use them. Now I'm waiting for my swap to arrive!
