Well, here it is, a week late, but none the less….here it is….ha ha
The promised giveaway…alrighty…
a small coin purse..and a few surprises….
So, for this giveaway, you must suggest a name for my dress form….she is a bright red beauty, adjustable from Singer….
Now, to enter, first off…no “Anonymous” entries, you must enter a name into the box, and be sure to check back when winner is announced, no entering and then not coming back to check if you won. 😛
So the giveaway starts today, and goes until 22nd off this month…I’ll announce the winner on the 23rd…and also, I’ll announce my dress form’s new name…..he he
So…whats new with me…lets see….oooh picture time…
My most recent project(besides the bag I made to match it yesterday, and also another canvas art bag for my father’s business)
The stripes are matched on all four seams, so perfectly(:P) that my sewing teacher seemed VERY impressed when I showed it to her yesterday afternoon….she said something along the lines of “some seamstresses that have been sewing for a long time wouldn’t even attempt to sew striped fabrics” (I cant remember her exact words, but that’s what she meant)
And look at me….bwahahaa…I’ve done it!….haha..nothing shall hold me back…I shall rush forwards, learning as I go….No project shall stop me! 😛
OOhhhh….AND I rearranged my room Sunday….It is not quite finished yet….I’ll probably be getting my bed out of here soon(“But where will you sleep? ” you ask….why..where else? The couch!, hey…I’ll do anything for a nice craft room…plus…I like sleeping on the couch..the only thing I have to do to make my bed….hehehe….fold up the blanket….hahaha)
Then the only thing keeping this from being a complete craft room will be my clothes will be kept in here….along with all my other knick knacks, and such….ha ha
so…a picture of the nearly finished side of my room….I still need to find a better spot for my still as of yet unnamed dress form…which I’ll probably do once my bed and computer desk(computer will be kept in here..but will be on a multipurpose table, instead of the ugly modern styled desk) are out of here….
The hat on the dresser is usually on the form…but I just put the skirt on her, and didn’t want the hat to get crushed in the process…
my room is a mix of styles, but I’m aiming for a Paris/France/red w/ white and some black kind of theme…its getting there….extremely slowly….
So went to Joann’s today, got another twin needle(stupid mistake with the first one…I uh…accidentally zigzagged with it….yeah….also got two large lined baskets to hold fabric, and a remnant of peachy linen/rayon….
Oh and a quick note, the black striped skirt is either all linen or a blend, I got it from Walmart when they were closing the fabric department, and wasn’t really checking the fiber content, but know that it at least has some linen..two reasons I know this…I can feel that it is(hard to explain that..but linen has a certain texture) and also…..well….the little receipt that came with it said “linen”…so yeah…:P….3 yds of it for like 4.50 isn’t bad….right?:P..plus it is 60in wide, and so my skirt only took like 1.5yds….YAY!….
OK….enough for now….I want to sew some more tonight
cheers, ~The Bella Modiste~
