Ok ladies, prepare to be jealous!!  Here are all the amazing things sew-a-go-go made for me!!  First and most awesome is the jacket...its soooo sweeeett!! It fits me perfectly, disregard my aggrivated face in the picture, my sister was having some issues with the camera  Roll Eyes

She embroidered this for me!!! 
Here is the second most awesome thing...it was originally a chippendale's calendar but now it is "The Men of Blanche's Boudoir" Its so awesome, every month has some funny quotes on it!!

This is a wash cloth that says "Elvis", not only is it awesome because Blanche is in the HunkaHunka Burnin Love Club, but also because I LOOOVE Elvis!!

This is a cute little polymer clay piece of cheesecake necklace, it's so cute!

and last but not least, even though it was really hard to take pictures of this, I hope you can see it, its a keychain with shrinky dink pictures of all the ladies!!

And she sent me shoulder pads!!!

Sorry some of the pictures sucks, I was having issues with the flash on my camera.  I absolutely love everything I got from sew-a-go-go, I just really hope now that she loves everything Im making her just has much!!

122  Commuting Bag for the BFF in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: January 16, 2008 10:35:43 AM
So my best friend commutes on the train to NYC every day for work.  She carries alot of stuff with her, books, her work shoes, work out clothes and shoes for when she goes to the gym afterwards, sometimes a yoga, etc, etc.  She was saying that she needed a bigger bag so...I put that in the back of my mind and for Christmas I whipped this up for her!  I absolultey LOVE the fabric and the whole bag has fleece inbetween the lining and outside fabric, its so nice and thick!  Not flimsy at all!! I had no idea when I started out making the bag, just how big it was going to turn out...the original button I had bought just seemed to damn small so...I did alot of hunting and found the perfect one to only throw it out!! Luckily I have an awesome sister who had no problem digging through the garbage and through every joanns and michales bag!! and she found it!!  Anyway..Liz ended up loving the bag and uses it everyday now!!  Oh and you cant really tell in the pictures but, theres huge pockets on either side of the bag...soooo nice!  Grin

123  Kinda See Through Shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: January 16, 2008 10:28:44 AM
I looooove this shirt!!  I got the material before Halloween at Joann's, it's supposed to be for costumes but whatever, I had to have an everyday shirt made from it!  Im not sure what exactly to call the fabric...the outside is kind of scratchy and there are "burn out" holes all over it!  I cant remember what pattern I used, I made a camo shirt out of the same one. I changed the pattern slightly, I got rid of the key hole and ties that are supposed to be at the back and the sides are supposed to flow out alot more, but I took em in, Im not a flowy kinda chic, haha!  Oh and you cant see through the top b.c theres a lining so...dont worry!!  My bff totally freaked, she thought I was gonna make it so you could see through everything, haha!!

Thanks for looking!!

124  Boyfriend's Christmas Present in Quilting: Completed Projects by pennydreadfull on: December 24, 2007 09:12:35 AM
Along with a few other things, I made this for my boyfriend for Christmas this year.  It's funny b.c for our anniversary in July I made him a quilt, but it didnt have any batting, just a fleece backing so he could use it in the summer and fall, I didn't realize til I had this one all laid out that I had picked pretty much the exact same color scheme as the last one, haha!  I guess I just know that he really likes red and black! Oh and it's twin sized.
Anyway...here it is!

Thanks for Looking!

125  Moms Christmas Present in Quilting: Completed Projects by pennydreadfull on: December 20, 2007 10:09:34 AM
When I picture my mom, I picture her on the couch reading a book, always with a cup of tea and a blanket on.
Last time I went to her house, I didnt like the blanket she had, haha! So I decided she needed a new one!
She loves the color blue, mostly darker blues so this is what I came up with.
I really hope she likes it!

126  Christmas Present for my Step-Mom in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: December 20, 2007 10:03:34 AM
So about a two months ago was my Uncle's 70th Birthday Party, I had just made a purse for myself and my sister and we both had them.  My step-mom was so impressed by them and asked if I was going to maker her one.  I told her I hadn't thought about it because she just had normal "lady" purses, as I call them...just a plain black, leather, to the point purse..I wasn't sure if I would make anything she'd like.  So she said she likes other kinds of purses she just never likes them and she said she really like the Vera Bradley bags but theyre too expensive so...I put it in the back of my mind.
Then at Thanksgiving she pointed out to me how cute her best friend's Vera Bradley bag was (she's real suttle with hints  Roll Eyes)  So of course I decided to try and make something similar for her for Christmas...this is what I came up with!  I hope she likes it!
I stuffed some plastic bags inside for the picture, it's still looks like its kind of drooping in places but, you get the idea!

Sorry this one's blurry, I wanted to show the size

Thanks for looking!

127  Christmas Present for my Boyfriend's Mom in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: December 20, 2007 09:56:57 AM
Yup, just as the title says, I made this purse for my boyfriend's mom.  When I saw the fabric I knew I had to make something for her out of it...she loves all that country kind of stuff, her house is decorated in "country clutter" so, I hope she really likes it!



Me Modeling it...sorry it's kind of blurry, I just wanted to show the size.

Thanks for looking!

128  My friend <3's her cat! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: December 20, 2007 09:52:34 AM
Haha! Yeah so my BFF has a new cat, well she got him about 6 months ago and she's pretty much obsessed with him!  Cheesy
We were hanging out with some people last weekend and we were all commenting on how much she talks about her cat and she said "Yeah, Im pretty sure I need an 'I Love My Cat' shirt".....
well of course I went to Joanns this week and got just what I needed to make this shirt!
I especially love how the cat looks like a real cat, not just a cartoon!! Hahaaa!

129  First shirt using knit! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: November 14, 2007 07:53:18 AM
Yup! So...I found this material in the remnant bins at joanns...I have a weird relationship with camo...i love it, but dont own a damn thing of it,  Cheesy 
I figured, Ive never sewn with knit fabric before..why not give it a shot!!  I used the Simplicity Its So Easy pattern 4218, I had to modify it a bit...in the pattern it has the bottom of the shirt belled out alot so...I had to take in the sides to get it the way I like it. I did one stupid thing though, when I sewed the gathered part i sewed one side in one direction and the other side in the opposite direction...you cant really tell when looking at the shirt but...I know so...I plan on making another shirt this same style, maybe with out the keyhole and tie in the back though...its super comfy!!
anyway...here it is!

awesome boob shot..

thanks for looking!!

130  a purple zebra?! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pennydreadfull on: November 09, 2007 06:06:19 AM
so I had such a positive experience making my sisters purse, I decided I needed a new one...i had this awesome fabric in my stash so...this is what i whipped up!!  There are pleats in the center but b.c of the zebra pattern you cant really see them that well in the pictures  Undecided  I lined it and put in a zipper too...normally if this purse was for someone else I would have added a pocket or two to the inside but, I NEVER use the pockets in my purses so...I figured it would be silly to make them.
anyway..heres the pictures...excuse my paint splattered eyore pj pants and the bra on my dressmakers dummy!

the color of the purse in the bathroom pictures is way more pink than the fabric actually is...the pictures on the dummy are more true to its color...thanks for looking!!!
