Junes challenge ....can you believe it is half way through the year....

Another very special guest designer for you this month ....Margaret and I feel she is going to take us back a little bit to our childhood.

Does anyone remember making little paper dresses I know I did for my 'Bunty' comic paper doll

OH how I loved working with paper designing dresses for her and I am going to get the chance again to create some gorgeous little outfits for this challenge.

About Margaret,

I am a self-taught mixed media artist living in Switzerland.
I love all things paper and paint and have recently renewed my interest in machine stitching. I've been blogging for a couple of years and feel very privileged to be part of such a wonderful creative community.

At the beginning of this year I set up a project called 'Dress Up' on my Blog.

I invited blogger's to make and display a dress every month and post a link. I've been overwhelmed by the positive response and have had so much fun blog hopping, meeting new faces and admiring so many beautiful creations.

When Chriss asked me if I would be June's Guest Designer we both immediately fell upon the idea of a mini 'Dress Up' ATC.

Me again, (chriss)
Here are Margaret's fabulous ATC's she is putting up for Junes swaps and if you would like to be in with a chance of owning one then all you have to do is join in this months theme with us.

(Margaret again)
A while ago I was shown how to make a folder page pocket which can be used for all sorts of things!!
I decided to use this idea as the ATC and make a little dress that tucks neatly into the pocket.
Start by cutting or ripping your page into a 13cm x 19.5 rectangle
see Margarets tute by clicking on the link below

I like to sew around the pocket to stabilize it, however if you don't have a sewing machine you could hand stitch around the edges to add a bit of texture
You can decorate the pocket if you like, I added some tissue scraps to the back and front to give it a little colour.

Cut the dress template to fit your pocket and get decorating!

I hope you have as much fun with this as I did, enjoy!
Me again,
Thank you Margaret.
When you have completed your ATC's please add them to your blog leave a link on this post and we will come and visit you.
Let the fashion show begin!!!!
