Frisbee Golf Bag

Hello again my bloggy readers.  I have finished this bag for my boyfriend. He likes to play frisbee golf with his friends. I have gone twice and am horrible. It's still fun though. I might need to pump some iron so my disc makes it a little further. So my boyfriend asked me to make him a bag to hold his frisbees. He came with me to the fabric store and picked out a fabric that he wanted. I have a bunch of fleece in my sewing room, so I used that as the sturdy lining. It was really easy to cut without a pattern. I first cut a large piece on the fold for the outside, then side panels to expand when neccessary. I used fabric dividers on the inside to separate the drivers, mid-range and putter discs. I chose velcro for the flap, that can either close or hang the over the opposite side for easy access. So here are some pictures:

Well that's it for back to "Lovetown, USA" on OWN!

Halloween Corset for Witch or Vampire Costume

I knew I wanted to make this for Halloween and hopefully to sell on my etsy.  When I found this fabric, I fell in love with it. I also bought some for a cute apron, which I now regret since my car is sucking up my money faster than bystanders chasing after tossed out money during a high speed chase. If you didn't see that on the news (It's a lot at a very rapid rate.) So hopefully this month starts going better, cuz shit, I'm over this bs.  Btw I'm quickly becoming a corset backing freak and will probably find a way to put it on all types of projects from here on out.

A Line Tea Length Green Dress

This past Saturday brought the wedding of a coworker and with it, the need of a dress to wear.  I had bought this fabric at Briteks MONTHS ago and just now got around to finally using it. It was up on the 4th floor looking all groovy as the last of its kind. My boyfriend was actually the one that found it. What can I say? He's got great taste.  ;0)  So here is the finished product all lovely and ready to be sold on etsy:
 And here is one with the lovely bride.  She was definitely the belle of the ball!

I have also been working on a new background for my blog. It's simple but unique so I hope that it will workout!

Hot Pink And Zebra Print Coin Purse

Hello again! I know it's been forever since I've posted anything! I'm back and will be posting more and more I promise :0) It's the beggining of September and I've decided now is the time to start making and purchasing Christmas gifts.  Last year was cutting it close with rent and bills and I wasn't able to buy as much as I wanted to for all my loved ones. So this year I've decided I will start early and try to sell a duplicate of each gift that I make. GENIUS! (In theory anyway.) We shall see if it actually works.

In other news a future customer in Whales will be purchasing her custom wedding dress from me.  It is my first wedding dress and I couldn't be more thrilled about it!  Of course there will be pictures to follow.

My halloween costume is coming along amazingly. I think it will give last year's costume (Oprah Winfrey, complete with Steadman) a run for it's money.

I also just finished a coin purse that will be given as a gift to my sister for her birthday. (I am banking on the fact that she does not check my blog. Sad but true.) Anyway it's most definitely her style and I have decided to start my one for sale, one for gift, policy with this...

It was my first time using a clasp liek this so I am happy with the results considering...
Oh and how can I forget...after the drama of my Singer shatting upon itself, I have a new sewing machine.  My boyfriend bought me my first Brother as a birthday gift this year. I did have to turn a year older but the new sewing machine eased the pain a well as The Red Hot Chile Peppers in Concert.
Oh and here is a picture of the adorable birthday boy in his racecar driver getup.  I don't want to brag but I eyballed the size since he is so tall and nailed it! Perfect fit!

Right before he went to showoff on the playground. :0)
