That's so kind!  I love that necklace too--it is such a strange-looking thing, but really cute and whimsical. Wink  Everythings better if it's made by someone you know.  Ah, thank you, I wish that were me, but my lovely friend, Linn is the one who modeled.  She is truly a natural beauty!

Thank you thank you!  I am not really sure what I'm considering at this point.  It's so hard to know. Smiley

No, I don't!  You have to have an invite, don't you?

I wasn't really sure where to put this, so if this belongs somewhere else, feel free, of course, to move it! Smiley

I found this beautiful old husqvarna in the dumpster at my apartment complex (hurrah for dumpster diving!) and it runs beautifully, even though it looks like it's been through hell.  It even has a working lightbulb intact!  I cannot find anything online, and am wondering (as they surely cannot manufacture these parts any longer) if anyone knows where I might be able to find a part?  Or perhaps if anyone has an old machine for scrapping?  Thanks so much!

I made this springy bag yesterday, wanting to use one of many screenprints I have lying around waiting to be made into something useful.  I didn't want it to look tacky, just sewing a screenprint on something, so I tried to incorporate it so it looked more deliberate.  Thanks for looking!

Talentof_None I have screenprinted the text onto the shirt!  You should try screen-printing if you have not yet.  It produces really crisp results! Smiley

Thanks for all of the feedback!  It really brightened my day.

lucy32-I love vests too!  They're a great way to add dimension to an outfit AND are super-simple to make (no arms to have to mess with sewing on)  Wink

bec89-I would love to make a tutorial.  I will have to research how tutorials are done and will make one as soon as I have the time.

alwaysinmyroom-Thank you, I have been blessed with a school sewing room with lots of old sheets and curtains that are fairly attractive/good quality. 

fluffybaka-Thanks so much.  This is one part of my final project this year, and I figured taking photos of the clothes would be much more fun than hanging the clothes for the exhibition.  (Kudos also to Linn, the blonde one, for her photographing skills of me, the brunette!)

Battle of the Bands is next weekend and I wanted
something new and red to support my [dear] brother's
band called Red Hot Pefection.  

This is what I came up with.  It's from 3 different coloured red
shirts.  I double layered the chest area so it could be worn without
a bra.  I later discovered that it was a terrible idea and it
would be very dangerous to wear such a loose fitting shirt
without something under it.

front view: (please excuse the messy room and hair)

The sides of the chest area are cinched as is the center.  The dark
red band continues to a back and then goes down in a triangle
(hard to explain  Huh)

Thanks so much for looking!
Enjoy your day/evening  Smiley
