This is my first ever piece of clothing. lol yea, I chose a bathing suit. I made it as a surprise for my boyfriend after he graduated from boot camp and we went to myrtle beach. He's big into hunting and I thought it would be fun. The only shots I really have are at the beach but you can still get the idea. I had a lot of fun but it took me a lot longer to make than I thought. Maybe it was the elastic, or the sewing machine that I've never used, or the fact that I changed the pattern lol who knows. But it turned out really nice and fit perfectly! I also made a little wrap sarong thingy out of the scraps since my tush hung out so much lol. It was my first time doing embroidery too. I did the sarong during the 12 hour drive down to Ft Jackson, SC. All the bumps didn't make it easy lol

look at my tush! lol

sorry if this pic is kinda crappy, the batteries in the camera were dying...

wowza! amazing job--there is no way this is your first sewing project! you are a prodigy!

I am from Louisiana and I know *a lot* of girls who would kill for a suit like that. It looks really great. you should be super proud.

That is FOXY!

After all that time in boot camp, I'm sure boyfriend was VERY surprised. I could have turned up in a garbage bag and DH would have been impressed at that point. I hope you two had a great trip together!!

ok, so the only other sewing project I've attempted was a sad pair of pajama bottoms that didn't end up fitting...lol total bust...i've done cross-stitching before. In fact I made a totally awesome ninja turtle blanket http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254683.0  but thats about it with my needle talents lol. so maybe I am a prodigy....who knows!
