Halloween costume

Finally finally I finished my dd costume Thursday night about 3:00 in the morning.I was so busy I couldn't start until that night anywho I did get it done. She told me no wings and no wand this year. I think this will be her last princess costume. :(

McCall's 4887

I should have taken these picture before she wore this costume out because she got spots all over it and broke the hook off for the button.

Pattern: McCall's 4887 view A.

Fabric: skirt contrast : tulle , vest is satin and lining was cotton.
I used I guess you can call it fabric jewelry on her vest. I used fabric glue to put them on. I couldn't find a lace I wanted to use on her costume so that why we use the jewelry. She said her classmates loved her costume that made me happy.

Well that's it for me have a safe Halloween!!

Hello I am still here just been very busy and still was trying to find my sewing mojo!

Well I did find it, but it took me a month to make this jacket!LOL! I think after I cut it out it took two weeks before I was able to starting sewing on it.

McCall's 5981

Pattern: McCall's 5981 view B size 10

Misses unlined jacket and belt: Close fitting jackets A,B in two lengths have straight shape, front darts, front separating zipper, patch pockets, gathered collar with casting and purchased cording, sleeve in two length with elastic casing: jacket A has three-quarter length sleeves and hip length; jacket B has long sleeves self-belt and tunic length.

Fabric: Fleece (red)

Conclusion: This was a easy jacket! Sewing with fleece can get thick when sewing it that is only problem I had when I was making this jacket.

Well that it for me until next time Happy crafting!

OH where OH where has my sewing mojo GONE!! Wow haven't been in the mood for any sewing lately. Over the weekend I made a purse for myself out of jeans.

This was a pair of my sons jeans that don't fit him anymore.
I used some sequins and a dollar store pin on it for decorations! I carry this bag on the weekend. I was hoping by making this bag it would jump start my mojo! I did start looking through my patterns to see what I would like to make. That's a start!

Well that it for me! Have a great week!

My dear sweet 6 year old daughter have been asking me can she have her hair down. OMG not right now your to young I said this in my head. LOL! Well here some hair styles I have tried.

This hair style is call the twist out. I found this style on youtube. I just put some Olive oil mousse on each twist and I took the twists out the next day. She love this style.
