Vintage Images - Free

I have so many random pieces of paper with various links for free images that I thought I would finally take a moment and create a post so I would have them all in one spot.  The first one and very well known is  The Graphics Fairy .  Karen has DIYs, projects, images for transferring and instructions for transferring images to a myriad of objects, 12 methods for transferring images.  Some topics in her gallery:  Ads & Labels, Birds, Children, Coca Cola Ads, Couples, Ephemera, Holidays, Flowers, Fairies & Angels, and a few more. Make sure to visit her blog.

Next up is Vintage Images, such a variety of images, I'm sure you'll find exactly what you need or something very similar!

Infinity Scarves

I made a few infinity scarves a few months ago and just recently two others.  You can make a lot from one yard of fabric.  I really like the first one I made, very springlike and I love the flirty fabric.  The plaid scarf was made because I had this very small piece of fabric which I loved but it was just too small to make anything to wear from it.  It's a little stiff and the fibers are a little bit delicate but I think it's a great accent piece for the holiday season and one which I will use year after year during the holidays.  This last one is a pretty floral but I just might take out the joining seam and use it as a regular scarf as it seems just too stiff.  It is pretty though and if I add a pin or something shiny, it will be very dressy.  (pictures coming soon).

T-Shirt Dress

I have had these two t-shirts for a very long time with the intention of sewing them together into a dress and then decorating it somehow.  The T-Shirt Dress portion is done and now I'm ready to get creative.  My idea is to paint a square for the front and I think I have some muslin pieces which I painted years ago that just need some images stamped on them to transform them.  Here is the T-Shirt and when I dig through my past painted muslin base, I will post that and hopefully not too long after that, I will post what I add to the muslin and then hopefully, not too long after that, I'll post the finished dress.
