writin' essays

is good for creativity. unfortunately not the academic type. so i ripped off an ugly-ish dress i already own and made it again in pretty fabric.

it was actually super easy, i just put the paper on the dress and (somewhat haphazardly) traced the lines and the darts. added in seam allowance (looking back i definitely should have added more, the dress is a little constricting) and just sewed.

(my sister takes photos, "do something with your arms!")
the fabric is this lovely cotton/linen... stuff... from the Fabric Store in Fitzroy, it it permanently crumpled and i am terrified it is going to shrink into unwearability when i wash it, but it's a pretty az colour.

jumper plus

...because it was kind of boring before. lace came from my grandma; beads from diva.

for my deer friends

more laminator art! it is seriously so easy, just draw and cut and laminate. then some handy work with pliers and you have a pretty necklace. e-z.

jump jump

i had a whole bunch of material left over from el cape, so i made myself a lovely soft jumper that i am wearing now and it is oh-so-comfy.

how-to pix coming soon.

cape II

so this is cape numero dos, which i made for my sister for her birthday. it's a lovely blue sweater kind of material, it feels so nice!

and i know, she's in her school uniform, but it looked kind of cute. like she was about to go and skip through the woods to school.

and aptly, i guess, the cord is made from the lanyard of my old girl guides whistle.
