Quantum Physics

We all know guys are hard to shop for. It’s all too easy to just give them a gift card or some tools and call it done. It’s even worse if you are making them something. Which is why I mainly stick to children’s and women’s stuff when I’m sewing. Every once in awhile, however, I will venture to make something for my Guinea pig brother. Since this shirt was so successful, I decided to try something similar and this is what I came up with.






I used two t shirts to make the stripes. I wasn’t really too sure about this one, but my brother is wearing it, so I guess you could call it a success!

Gimme a break of that Kit Kat bar!

I am finally free! My first semester at BGSU is finally over, and it felt like the longest and hardest semester I have ever had! BUT, enough of that. It’s Christmas break time, which meansssssss…….. time for sewing! (and doing whatever I want). So, to kick it off, here is some of what I made for Christmas presents. I wasn’t able to get pictures of everything, but you didn’t miss much:)

DSC03808I made a guitar strap out of this fabric. I did not get a pic of the finished product, but it turned out pretty cool (if I do say so myself).

A bunch of zippered pouches. These make the perfect last minute gift (not that any of us procrastinate:)




Skirt made with striped fabric:




Elmo skirt:


Some flowered skirts:



A little helmet hat with a big flower on the side:

So that’s that…… we will now return to regular programming. For at least a few weeks anyway ;)
