In the Shop| Jane Austen Wall Decor


  Hello!! Today I wanted to share and tell you a little about three of my Esty shop items. I really enjoy Etsy and it is a great place to sell your handmade items! 
  First let me introduce you to my shop. Back in June I created my Etsy shop and thus was born the Boutique Shoppe!!! 
  I am a really big Jane Austen fan!! I love her books, the movies, and especially the clothing from that time period. These four items are all Jane Austen related!
  Awhile back I purchased so Jane Austen paper. I decided I would use it to make wall hoop decorations but instead of using fabric I would use paper. All of them are embellished with braid, ribbon, gems, or dainty roses.




 Jane Austen Hoop Wall Decor
   This first one has different scences and characters from Jane Austen's books.

 
 "The wishes the hopes the confidence the predictions of the small band of true friends who witnessed the ceremony were fully answered in the perfect happiness of the union."
                                                                                                    ~Emma
               

Details of the pretty pictures!






Love and Friendship Inspired Quote Hoop Wall Decor 
Pretty, pretty, pink!! I had fun making this one.

 
 "Run mad as often as you choose, but do not faint!"
                                                       ~Love and Friendship, Jane Austen

 
 Love the pretty little roses!!!






 
This one is inspired after one of Jane Austen's famous quote.

 
"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."                                                                                
                                                                                                  ~Jane Austen
  



Pride and Prejudice Hoop Wall Decor
I just love Pride and Prejudice! This one is inspired after Mr. Darcy's proposal to Elizabeth.

 
"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
                                          ~Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice


I love the silhouette portraits of Elizabeth and Mr.Darcy!



I had fun making these items and taking the pictures! Honestly I would like to change the name of my shop and also have future plans for my shop but for now I am keeping it as is.  

Do you love Jane Austen? What do you like about her? I would love to hear any shop suggestions!

Be sure to check out my shop and other items!!

Up Coming Sewing Projects

I am so excited to start blogging!!!!! I thought it would be neat to show you my up coming sewing projects. So here it goes......




My First Project



So several weeks ago I went to Hobby Lobby and found these two pretty cotton fabrics. I plan on making a knee length skirts out each one. Here are a few examples of what I am thinking of:





My Second Project



Awhile back I bought this floral linen on sale at Joann's. I wanted to use it to make a 1950's dress. The pattern I was originally going to use Butterick 6835 I couldn't find. So I decided to use the lovely Simplicity 1459!! I am going to make view A but with short sleeves.




My third project
A good friend of mine and I are each going to make this next dress together.


 ...............and we are making it out of this fabric


My four project

So I am soooo excited about this last one!!! I am going to attempt to recreate Elizabeth Bennet's Netherfield ball gown from Pride and Prejudice 1995 movie!!


 
I will have a separate blog post on this one when I finish it :)


 I searched and searched for a exact look alike fabric but I wasn't finding one. This is the closest one that I found. After several bodice mocks, I got the bodice to look the same as the dress and then cut the other pieces out. Now to sewing it!!!!!
