Halloween Costume #2

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had fun going to our church's annual Halloween party Sat. There were a bunch of fun activities for the younger kids. I finished our daughter's costume but had to make minor adjustments because the ribbon I put in was not holding.

I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was a busy one, but our kiddos had fun so it was a good one.
I was busy sewing Halloween costumes. Have you ever made a corset? It's one of those things I would never have thought to make, but over the weekend that's what I did. I made a corset.

Blog Truncating

I am going to be truncating my posts from now on. I hope you'll all stay with me through this change. I know that there are those out there that steals other peoples posts, ideas you name, but I found out today from Karen over at Sew Many Ways that there are computer robots out there that are programmed to just take (steal) your whole post and use it on their site for profit, so basically they are profitting from your hardwork. I love to share my creativity with you and so to prevent theft I am going to have to truncate all my posts. You just need to click one extra click where it says "Read More" and it will take you to the whole post.

Have a great weekend:-)

Sidetracked and a New Accessory

I got sidetracked with organizing and moving things around so alot of the things I planned to finish had to wait. It sure feels nice to throw things out that have been sitting around for far too long. I still have to find a place for all my fabric scraps and weed through my craft cabinet which hasn't seen the light of day in a few years. 
Anywho...I signed up for Art Gallery Fabrics' Sept. challenge so with all the mess, I had to get the challenge project done. I mean I don't have to, but once I sign up for something I will get it done and done it is. This is my submission, a laptop sleeve with a pocket. I bought these fabrics a couple of years ago when my local quilt shop was having a huge sale. I bought yards and yards of it for some home sewing projects, but sadly did not get around to doing. I figured this is a great challenge because I need a laptop sleeve to protect my computer and I want a zippered closure to prevent any mishaps. The hardest part about this challenge was sitting down and drafting up my own pattern, not that I can't. It just takes me a while to think of something. I didn't want just a plain old sleeve with a pocket. I wanted to add some sort of quilting to it. I sketched many different ones and I finally settled on this design. I hope I win. It would be sew much fun to have some of their new fabrics to play with. 

I will be back this week with the final tutorials for the Homecoming Table Topper. Thanks for hanging in there with me while get my things in order :-)
