My eldest son needed a new outfit, so my hubby decides 2days before the powwow that he's going to make one.   Roll Eyes  The man doesn't sew, but he cut everything out.  I was up 'til all hours, sewed my finger  Shocked, and totally crabby at the powwow...but we got 'er done.  It still needs a lot of embellishment, but ds was happy and was pulling moves we didn't even know he had Cheesy





Thanks for looking  Grin

Wow, smashing!! How did you create the headdress? My best friend goes to the powwows in Yellowknife and always wears the most awesome beaded collars.

I can't believe you pulled this together in just 2 days!

I love that!  My husband, after I sewed my finger up (which I'm likely to do), would be telling everyone how he pulled it together just like that.  I hope you got the credit  Smiley

thanks for all the kind words Cheesy  this outfit is actually just a filler until he gets his new one from my brother.  but now he'll have two nice outfits once we finish adding all the extras.  the head dress we bought--they take waaay more patience than i will ever have Cheesy

anti-emily:  i get the same giddyness Grin  yup the kitty's all beads.  i did a deary lou one and a pandapple ring for a swap last month.  a batz maru would be sweet!

vegbee:  yeah, i'm a little in shock that we actually finished it!  my husband was trying to get me to buy supplies w/out a sketch or anything.  it took many hours for him to realize that i couldn't see the pic. he had in his head.  he did credit me, but i mostly just smiled and tried to ignore the throbbing of my finger! Cheesy
