Sewn : Button-Up Floral Skirt

Sunday, September 25, 2011

New Skirt!


I know it's kind of hard to see the details but it has a button-up front and a pleated waist.
I'm kind of obsessed with this pattern, I've used it like three times now. ha

 This entire skirt cost me like $10 dollars to make. Just sayin.
It pays to learn how to sew my friends. :)

Crafted : Neighborhood Party Invites

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Ok so first I have to say that I am soo not a graphic designer. Photoshop is a foreign concept to me and the thought of creating something digitally scares the crap out of me. (Seriously how do these people do it?) But I do really, really want to learn. Like really badly. So I'm making an attempt. 
(That was my disclaimer by the way. So none of you out there better be thinking I know what I'm doing or anything. )




My first attempt came in the form of invitations for my mom. The cute lady thought it would be a fun idea to throw a neighborhood get together so she offered to pay me to make the invites. (Score! Money and practice? Now that's my kind of deal.)




I was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out given that I was expecting to hate them
 not to like them very much.
I guess it's just nice to know I don't always have to rely on Etsy. (Though a big part of my spending money will most likely end up there anyways. ha )




What's something you've always wanted to learn how to do?

Crafted : Birthday Candy Bar Card

I have way too much fun making these things.



Happy Birthday Sadie!

By the way, I wanted to apologize for my lack of posting lately. I've started college and the workload is somewhat driving. me. insane. I've gone from being able to sew whenever to only sewing when I can fit it in. Gahh, Boo all you college professors making my life difficult. I did finish one skirt though so I'm hoping to be back sometime this week!

Have a lovely weekend everyone. If you missed it, you should check out Christian Siriano's Spring 2012 collection. and Jill Stuart's. and Rebecca Minkoff's. Just because they were amazing and worthy of posting all over the internet. :)
