Sewing Projects

These are just a couple things I finished up right before I left for college. End-of-Summer favors I guess you could say.

This is a dress my friend Maria asked me to make out of antique pillow cases. I wish you could see the embroidery on the bust better, but white is hard to photograph. The ruffle on the bottom wraps around the hem in back.

This I made for my friend Amy. She picked out the fabric and I modeled it after a purse I made myself a couple years ago.

I have yet to buy a sewing machine for my dorm room. It's a pretty tiny dorm, too, so when I do get one I'll have to stay reeeally organized.

Anyway, I'm a busy college student now, so I'll talk to you later.

Bill Kaulitz- Finished

Finally done with this! I sorta gave up on his hair, I shoulda known better than to attempt a wacky backlit mohawk. *Shrug* Regardless, it is finished. I hope she likes it.

In other news, I'm making a dress for my friend Maria out of pretty old pillow cases (she is tiny), and that's coming along well. Pictures will follow soon.
Also, I'm currently (as in, at this moment) making a purse for my friend Amy as a late birthday gift. It is blue-green-gold plaid with kelly green lining inside.

I tried to have a garage sale today, but so far it looks like my advertising skills have failed. Or, just not many people are interested in teenage girl apparel. Probably both. My sister is outside now manning the vacant setup. But, the day's not over yet, we'll see who shows up.

Oh, by the way, I have decided to take part in this little shindig called The Sketchbook Project. Basically, they send you a sketchbook, you fill 'er up, and they take it on tour around the US. It costs $25, but I think it will be fun. I'll probably do some watercolor paintings.

Anyway, looking forward to that, lots of sewing to do, and I leave for college next Wednesday! BYE!

Work In Progress

This is some progress i've been making on this Bill Kaulitz trade.

This is the reference I'm using:

I'm hoping to have this done pretty soon, and I really hope she likes it!
