Hey Ya'll! Well, I am so sorry I have been Persona-Non-Blogga lately.. I have been busy sewing like a madwoman to get ready for this weekend and my little march in the HandMade Parade . I can't seem to blog and craft simultaniously when it gets this intense. So bear with me! I will post gobs more soon.
But if you live with in a 4 hour drive of Sacramento... You should totally come visit all the crafty ladies there.
Get the details on their blog!
I did decide I had to make some New Vintage for sale:
I made a couple of "Thoroughly Modern Muu Muus" to wear around when it is too hot for clothing. They are good as jumpers in the fall as well. Just layer them!
I modified the jumper pattern with a sash in the back to help with fitting the masses. I will be taking orders at the show for these and hopefully I will sell the two I made. But just in case, I happened to make them in Medium... Just my size. I also made them sooo short because I like this style over my shorts/ capris/ jeans! ( The one below is my favorite....)
I also made a couple of 'toddler tunix'.. really for the pre-toddling set.. they need bloomers, but alas, I am out of time!
I made a few aprons for the Mother's day shoppers:
I will be selling the Utility Obis ( another New Vintage Creation) as well as my Modern Geisha Obi's from the Etsy stuff.. Hanky Tanks and other goodies.
I am even doing some of my latest craft: Nite Nite Owls. Felted sweater owls with needle felt embellishments (took "Knit Sonya" class and was hooked)and scented with lavander for sweet dreams.
You should go to Knit Sonyas new site.. It is very very cool! ( I am suffering for site envy for certain.)
All right.. this isn't the super juiciest New Vintage post and for that I apologise. I will try Like a Demon to make up for it in the next couple of weeks ... But in the mean time I do recommend the new Blueprint and their article on Mod Dresses. We will ignore the fact that the model is depressingly skinny and looks tres bored.. and focus on the fact that with ready made prices like these... Every Fabric Purchase I make Is Justifiable. (But somebody needs to make that poor thing a cookie.. really.)
(ooh.. sorry for the wierd disappearing photo posts Blogliners.. I am no tech genius and I did something goofy.. sorry.)
