Funny laundry making!
AHHHHHHHHHHH... I totally forgot to link my picture to the "Picture me Domestic" thing. Oh well, at least I had fun trying to take some nice and most of all funny pictures of my person while doing my domestic activities. Unfortunately, some I can't add here today because there's something wrong with my USB and I can't pass my photos into the computer... Arghhhh!!! Here's the one I can publish, because my USB was still working when I took it.
The Spring Stashbust Round (April) took place over T-Shirt Diaries. I decided to play along, mainly to keep me from buying new supllies. And I made it, I haven't at all. I was really close to do it, but I said NO at the last minute.
And there was a bonus, Robin has featured my Maternity Tunic Tutorial!!! How great is that? Thanks so much!!!
What else did I do stashbusting? Well, I am preparing my daughter's first birthday bit by bit, so, so far I have succeed to:
use a sheet of black felt for the party favours,
use some red and white polka dot fabric for her birthday dress,
white and blue polka dot fabric is being used on a flamenco dress for her too.
I have cut off a very old pair of pants I have been given (huge red polka dots) and am making a lovely tunic for myself.
What else? Oh, I've started a blue 50's dress for myself too, my cousin is getting married one day after G.'s birthday and I am making our outfits. We'll all be matching: mom, dad and baby. As I've mentioned before, I'll wear a blue dress with some red spotlights, baby G. will wear a blue (same one) dress with some white spotlights and did will have a tie, made out of the blue fabric too. Which was actually a present from his mom to me. It's vintage too, she had it for years and years, but she sews no more and knows I L.O.V.E. fabric... Every once in a while she finds a piece of her old materials and she'll give it to me. =)
I have also started a flamenco pants for my nephew. And have fixed an existing flamenco dress for his sister. We're half spanish, and next month we'll all be going to a Romeria at my dad's village (in Spain), so it's my job to make the kids look appropriate to the ocasion.
I will be making two more dresses for my cousin's wedding: one for my sister and one for my niece, which will also be a little matching.
I do have big plans for a lot of fabrics I still have (they are a lot!), I just ain't got the time for everything. Come back to see all those projects after finished!
I made this skirt about a year or two ago. I don't wear it that often, especially after being a mommie, it's not that comfortable to wear mini skirts when you have to be running around with a little baby.
But I loved it when I made it and I still love it. I guess I have to wear it more from now on. I loved how well done it was, especially when I was going through a bad season and my sewing skills were a little left behind. Finishing this project was a little escape for me too, so I am very proud of it.
P.S. don't you just love my shoes? I L-O-V-E my shoes!!! ;)
