Oh, Fabric Scraps.

I’ll never get around to doing this type of thing, but it’s an interesting idea. Kind of reminds me of scrunchies though.

Oh Easter…

I kind of love candy holidays.

Fabric!Maybe that’s why I got so many fabrics in jellybean colors?

These are my incentives to finish all the half-done projects sitting in my work-room. Got to get all the other ones done before I can start in on turning these into tops and dresses and bathing suit cover-ups.

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep myself working instead of screwing around.

Ah, to have money in the bank!

My tax refund was deposited into my bank account yesterday, so I have been spending it hand over fist. On such frivolities as shipping supplies, new glasses (woot they should be ready in a week and I’ll be able to see again!) and cute red $9 flats I can wear to work.

Like I said last week, I need to figure out what I should be investing in business-wise and actually invest in it. I was at Joann’s this afternoon buying fabric and trying to look around at what I need and what I don’t need. That can be really tough. I didn’t really find anything that struck me as good equipment or organizational stuff or whatever. I got fabric. I got zippers. I got elastic. I got out.

I’ll probably go to Hobby Lobby on Monday or Tuesday and look at their decorative stuff that I might be able to use for photoshoots or display purposes. Maybe Goodwill and Salvation Army, too.

Sewing is my crack.

I made my very first wearable skirt when I was eleven years old. It was crap, but I had to be talked out of wearing it to school. Skirts will always probably be my favorite thing to make.

However…

Every once in a while I need something new to do so that I don’t kill myself from boredom – or turn one of my most pleasurable activities into a chore.

This is why I’m going to learn to make rompers.

I don’t even particularly like rompers. They remind me of something you’d see in an episode of Three’s Company. (And when it comes to 70s fashion I am all about Mary Richards and Rhoda Morganstern.) But they’re hot right now, I need to get better at both shorts and tops, and I frankly look really cute in them so the fact that I’m currently my only model isn’t going to be a problem.

A couple of cute (and inexpensive) fabrics in my stash seem to lend themselves to this type of garment and on the heels of my success at making something wearable out of strips of plastic I’m pretty confident in my ability to pull this off well.
