Boston Handmade BBQ and Material Swap

By Beth of Elizabeth Brennick Designs

This past summer our group Boston Handmade had a barbecue at Mimi's (MCK254) house. We got to bring our loved ones, hang out, and eat delicious food. Along with the gathering we decided to throw in a material swap. I brought a couple of bags of fabric and swatches.

As more people arrived the less room there was in Mimi's front hallway. I spotted some black and white striped fabric. Now I'm a very colorful person and try to stay away from black fabric because I wear enough of that color. Ideas started to pop up in my head of what I could make with it. I don't know who brought but I'm dying to know. I think it was Crystal of Vintage by Crystal.

Well here is the finished product! I paired the black and white stripe fabric with denim and made a retro style dress. I hope to find out who brought the fabric and thank them. I hope they like what I made with it. My family and I had a wonderful time and even the kids walked away with some treasures.
