The Elsie inspired dress.

Hi friends!

Yesterday when I discovered this DIY on Elsie’s Blog I felt the urge to get my crafty groove on and block print a dress myself!


I took a squirrel cookie cutter and used it to create a pattern from craft foam. Works well 🙂

I think it is a very fun way to restyle old dresses. This one isn’t really „old“ but I have never worn it before… I think this might change now that it looks so special!

What do you think?

Oh, and last night I was sewing a blouse for 3 hours just to rip it apart afterwards because it did in NO WAY turn out as cute as I wanted to. Bleh! All the work for nothing. Did you ever experience things like this?

Love yous,

  1. love it! ❤

    and as for the sewing thing, i've had school projects turn out that way and have to start over, but otherwise, no, since i haven't really gotten into any serious craftings!

  2. It is cute! I’m going to try it as well!
    And yes, I did experience something like that before. When I knitted a sweater, in the end, it was too big. I had so many troubles making it, that I didn’t want to start all over again. So now it’s just laying in my closet…

  3. katja, it looks wonderful! did you leave a link in the comments section, so elsie can see what you made? i haven’t been crafting, but i’ve been doing a lot of art journaling.

  4. I’m not sewing, but stuff like that happens to me all the time :)! I think it’s normal. At least i hope so :)!
    And I like your dress. You should wear it more often now…

  5. I really love Elsie’s blog and her great DIY inspirations. Yours turned out really nice, the squirrels are such a cute idea.
    Best, Katinka
