That mushroom twinchie is such a cool texture! What is it made of?

I've been living out of a hotel room this summer for an internship, but I've still managed to do a little sewing.

The most boring black skirt ever, but it's literally been worn every single weekend since I made it.

I made a sweater in July and I don't care.  It's super snuggly and I will wear it even though the hem band is all wonky.

I was a little afraid to wear this out, and then literally 7 or 8 people said they loved it just as I was walking down the street, which has never happened to me basically ever.

So much amazing crafty goodness on this board, I can't even process the amount of inspiration!

Haven't checked in in a good long while, but I have been living in a hotel room over the summer for an internship, and it's really helping me destash.  Since I only have enough room for one dresser drawer of fabric, I brought 5 pieces with me for specific projects, and so far I've used 3 of them up!  I think when I get back I might try picking out a small selection of stuff to work on, so I still have a choice, but not decision overwhelm by looking at everything I have all at once.

I finished something, it's from my list, and it qualifies for the challenge because it's purple!

It's made from Vogue 8670, and of course there's a bunch of extra ease (and I can tell I need an FBA from the drag lines in the picture), but it gives me a starting point to alter the pattern and I think this version is definitely wearable.

Well, looks like it's going to be all destashing for me for a while - my boyfriend got laid off unexpectedly yesterday. Just looking at it as powerful motivation to be smarter with our money, which was something we had been trying to do before this anyway.    Time to go stash digging!  Cheesy

We cleaned out our area yesterday and I got rid of 2 garbage bags of fabric I will never use, clothes I will never refashion, etc.  Most of it I had forgotten was in there, which I figured was a good sign it really wasn't important enough to keep.  Cheesy

Those crowns are awesome!

I didn't actually make much crafting progress in January (too many video games..oops), but I found out that I got selected for an internship, which means for the summer I'll go from 70 hour work weeks to 40!  I will have so much crafting time I won't even know what to do with myself!

ActsofCraftiness - Trying to do swaps without buying new things has never worked out for me.  I never want to make anything less than my best for them, and generally I don't have just the right thing, I only ever have something that will work okay but not great.  Good on you for managing to do it for some of them!

Oh, how I wish I could think of fabrics in quantities smaller than a yard!  Wink  I learned long ago that the standard unit for garment sewing if I don't have an exact pattern is either 3 yards of 60" fabric or 4 yards of 45" fabric.  Much less than that and I will inevitably need to recut a piece and not have enough. And the scraps from garment sewing are a lot harder to use up than quilting cottons.  I'm thinking about listing another load of them on Freecycle; I always make it clear that they are garment fabric, not quilting fabric, but someone always takes them off my hands.

I really like that key necklace, sheepblue.

I finished my first project!  It's a Sewaholic Renfrew, the closest thing I have to a TnT t-shirt pattern.  Made from pretty thin polyester, so it's not the most luxurious thing in the world to wear, but I have to sew up all the sort of yucky fabric so that I'll have really gotten my skills up to snuff to sew the really nice fabrics. 

Now back to the steampunk costume for round 2!
