About Me

Whilst running round after two bambinos I set up www.kryshees.com making childrens clothes, unique childrens accessories, wonderful nurser adornments and yummy mummy type products. I love things bright and bold and try to bring these into childrens items.

Dress a girl around the world!!

Louise from Sew Scrumptious set up thread on folksy asking if anyone wanted to join her in making pillowcase dresses to send abroad. The details are on her blog here

I joined in as soon as I saw the thread and posted out on my local freecycle for any pillowcases to transform. I met two ladies, Penny and Chrissie, who had a craft morning together and brought over 13 dresses! WOW!!!

I have picked up a number of pillowcases to transform. They are sitting nicely on a pile awaiting my attention! I will get round to them, promise!

I was also donated two lovely skirts to 'do something too', so ta da.. 2 slightly different dresses to add to the pile!

I felt bad chopping these up so decided to shirr(sp) the top sections for an easy dress coupled with ribbon ties.

Two more in a sparkly sequined circle print and details

Thanks to a village friend Clare for those.

I had best get a move on with the others!!!
