I made it!

I'm putting together some really cute aprons. I needed a body to view them on. SO... when I don't have something.. I make it!

It has been fun putting together a "fit model". First I took a trip to one of my favorite Thrift Stores (no suprise fining me in a thrift store!). I found a very cute dress. It was on "super sale". It was $.99! Then in the same store I found some old pillows, BIG pillows they were the same price! I run home with my goodies and get to creating! I put together the CUTEST dress form dummie display fit model!

I have always wanted a dress form. I just cant seem to find the perfect one. So while Im waiting for one to show up..I will be having Aunt Maggie at all my shows. She will be wearing my favorite apron at each show.

I will have pictures of her on here soon.
Have a happy rest of the weekend!

Sew Sew Sew..

I love it! I just love creating. I have been working on some very fun aprons! I can't wait to show them at the Christmas in July sale and the end of July in Peoria. My first real craft fair!
My son who is 24 will soon be moving out .. again.. and I will have me studio back! I have been working in the living room. It works but I miss my space.
I will post some apron pics as soon as I can.
Happy Tuesday~

So now the hunt is on.. I want everything Edith Head. If anyone knows where I can get pictures, drawings and other things let me know.

Well Im off to create more!!

Putting it all together.

I guess I may be a pureist. I want to have and do everything, but i dont have the funds or the ability to obtain it all. BUT I do have the know how to DO it all!! (okay, MOST of it all). So having said that.. This is my blog! It is still underconstruction. It's kind of like the roads in Arizona, undercontruction at all times, but some roads are open or detours offered.
So this being my first post I wanted to let everyone know that I enjoy feedback. I also enjoy meeting new people, so please feel free to follow me. I will be adding things to the blog almost daily. Thanks for stopping in, next time, grab a cup of coffee sit and chat!
