Description

My MIL gave me one of her saree which got torn while removing pin from the pleats.

She asked me to add border patti to the mosquito net using the saree border.

After doing so, there was still lot of fabric left. I used the Pallu of the saree to create a pillow case style dress for my DD.

Comments welcome..

This has a big story to it as there were still more bits of fabric left and i ended up making ironboard cover and kitchen cloth with it. We also made handmade card for my FIL’s birthday, she was more than elated to wear a new outfit and make own card to give to her dear Thatha (Grandfather)…. more of it on blogged here for those interested ….
