I think I’m going to put up a nicer picture of them. Perhaps tomorrow. We’ll see. In the meantime: Grub Face and Frizzy Hair!
This is my solution to their Christmas dresses having straps instead of sleeves. I don’t want them to get cold when we go a-visiting.
I used a (new to me) large stitch so that the details of their dresses are still going to be largely visible underneath, but that their shoulders will be covered and kept warm.
I added small bows to each to keep them decorative and beautiful.
Kira’s dress is pink, so I chose a neutral white colour for her coverlette.
Ally’s dress is black so I chose a lovely burnt orange colour that I own to add a pop of colour to her outfit.
My super exciting news is this: I have decided to sell these online.
Wooooooo!!!! I know you’re excited too!
If you are interested in purchasing one of my amazing coverlettes then you need to only provide me with the measurement of the intended owner’s shoulders (the widest point from one shoulder to the other) and your choice of colour. Oh, and also your address. Duh. It would be helpful to know the person’s height as well so I could determine how long to make the coverelette, but I can always wing it if you are unsure and/or super secretive about heights.
My starting idea is to charge $10 per coverlette which includes shipping to Canada or the United States. I can definitely ship it to other countries but I will have to research how much that would cost me. This particular coverlette would fit up to an average 6 year old. If you are interested in a larger coverlette then the price will increase. I will not charge more than $20 for an adult coverlette. We’ll talk.
If I manage to sell any of these from my blog then I will consider opening an Etsy Shop.
Pleeeeeeeeeease! I would love to start making a little extra money to take a little pressure off over the next couple of years!
Feedback is appreciated!!!
And the photo challenges. This is embarassing. Don’t look.

I cheat again.
This is an old picture. What can I say? I wasn’t inspired, and I was really busy.
