I know it has been quite a while since I posted last. I’ve still been sewing all along, so here is a very long update:

While the sewing machine was out getting cleaned, I made this pillow with hot glue for my daughter

I made this unlined purse from a decorative pillow case following Martha’s Sleeper Of A Bag tutorial

I made this hobo-esqe bag from a tuxedo shirt & sharpies. The entire bag is hand drawn

I scored all this free fabric from craigslist:

and then I went through it and gave away half, since our apartment is tiny & my sewing already consumes a good portion of our living room.

I made this Kitty

And this giraffe

Then I tried my hand at clothing & made this shirt, which was a great learning experience

I’ve since made 2 shirts from patterns, but I haven’t taken pictures yet.

I read Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk and was insprired to make this pocketbook

I’ve gotten into spray paint stenciling lately (the chuck purse is also spraypainted), these are some pillows that I made my friend’s son for his birthday

My bestie recently bought me a lot of very nice fabric & in return I need to make him a Van Helsing/Steampunk jacket/cloak. Luckily I don’t have to do it right away. On our fabric shopping spree, my sister picked up some cool polkadot cord & asked me to make her a messenger bag. Yuck. I hate using or making messenger bags, but here it is

Sparkly pockets from a pair of Tatyana’s old pants

Super big multi purpose pockets inside

I’ve also made an apron for Joe’s mom & a super awesome reversible scarf for my bestie, but I can’t seem to find pictures of either.

Now I am working on a corset dress for Tatyana. Here’s the top part (the pic is a little blurry)

Also, I want to make something like this (eventually)

And right now I am off to make a few of these

Thanks for looking!!
