If we could all live in a tent

I’m calling this a tent dress…or extreme a-line dress….or whatever you wanna call it! I was gonna wait till I could have my niece try it on, but the weeks went by and I didn’t wanna wait any longer, so here ya go;)

I have had this bias tape for awhile. I think I got it from Goodwill… I LOVE it, but never found a use for it. I thought it went perfect with denim, and I whipped this dress up in about an hour and  a half. Although it’s technically a top… I’m never a good judge on how long to make things!

Winner winner Chicken Dinner!

Annndddddd……we have a winner! Heathers Feathers is the randomly drawn winner of my surprise craft package! (you guys should totally check out her blog too, cuz she has some great ideas).


Next week I will have another giveaway (cuz I’m just that generous). It will be for everyone, not just the crafty types (although I’m sure you're all crafty;)) Make sure to tune in!! I started my 1st year of college at BGSU, which means I probably wont have much time for sewing. Today, I actually took my sewing machine off my desk and put my laptop on it instead :( Sadness, I tell you. BUT, I will get in a giveaway and maybe a few refashions before school completely encapsulates me in a sea of papers and evil speeches (yes I have speech class:( the classroom is across the street from a cemetery…no kidding)

Get Crafty!

I felt like having a giveaway, so here ya go! giveaway will run from now to next Friday (8/25). All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and tell me in a comment what your favorite kind of craft is (and an email address if you want any hope of receiving your prize;)) Winner will be picked randomly.

I suppose I should tell you what the prize is? Well, I cant, cuz it’s a surprise. I can tell you that one lucky winner will receive a surprise package of craft supplies (not a finished product). For those of you that don’t craft, don’t worry. I’ll be having another giveaway soon (and by soon I mean before I go back to school, which unfortunately is very soon:()

So, there you go! Get to it; don’t be lazy (like my kitty;))

Awash in a sea of Blues

This is proof that I have actually been doing some sewing! It has finally cooled down enough to where my sewing room doesn’t feel like a sauna.

I decided to make this skirt to try and get rid of some of the denim I had laying around. The benefit of being  a seamstress is that people will often give you their second hand clothing (think mens shirts and jeans galore). The down side to this is that I usually receive the “fabric” faster than I can make something with it. so, this skirt was a perfect way to get rid of 4 pairs of jeans in one fell swoop.


You cant see them very well, but I’m also wearing my new 5-inch wedges:) And those mens shirts I Mentioned? I’ve got a project with those comin too:)


Skirt is for sale here.

It’s Alivveeee!!!

Yes, I’m still here! I’ve still been sewing, just very slowly, ‘cuz when you have no air conditioner and the temps outside are 90 and climbing, sewing isn’t exactly a priority;)  I will have something to show for it in the next week though! Gotta get my sewing in before school starts:(
