Rearview Fridays: laundry line card

I was going through some old patterns and came upon these 2 little dresses along with a paper pattern. I’m so glad I made a pattern for them so that they’re easy to replicate. I had also made and saved little shirt and pant patterns (sometimes I love myself and my packrat ways)! The small clothes pegs are worth picking up whenever you see them so you can make charming, tiny things whenever the mood strikes! I think I got these ones years ago at The Paper Place in Toronto (awesome store, worth a field trip if you haven’t been!).

For this card I stitch a line across a piece of card stock, I don’t even finish the ends, hot glue a couple of tiny clothes pegs on, cut out the wee dresses from a desirable fabric, clip ’em on and presto, charming card alert! I made a bunch of them a couple of years ago, didn’t retain one for posterity and forgot about them. I’ve recreated this one so I don’t forget that it’s a keeper. Great for babies, housewarmings, weddings, birthdays, just adjust what’s hanging on the line. I’ll do some more examples and a how-to one day soon.
