Best of 2010

I was looking through the BurdaStyle album "Best of 2010" and 2 of my projects were in it! God has really blessed me this year.

Here's the link: Best of 2010
Photo 12 is of the prom dress and photo 48 is of the Urban Outfitters inspired bag.
There's lots of other fantastic projects in that album.

Lots of Projects

I haven't posted in forever.  It's because of that time thing, you know? I've made several things, let me just show the pictures. They are in order from oldest to newest.  A total of 4 projects finished.  3 of which were completed during break. 

 This is Leigh Anne's dress.  She was asking me for it for a long time... I finally finished it. 

It was inspired from this dress (hope it's ok i'm using this picture KK)

Flower ruffle detail

Tie in back... a little longer than I wanted it to be... oh well.

Front.  And let me just say It looks and fits much better on the actual person. 
My mannequin doesn't understand curves.

This purse was for Hannah B.'s birthday present.  I was told her favorite color is purple.

I think my machine needle broke 5 times while sewing this. 

Inside - has three pockets and zipper pocket

This guy was easier to show in one collage of photos.  It's an owl wallet made out of leather.  My sewing machine actually put up with it.  I gave this to Hannah H. for her late birthday/christmas present. 

Yea, horrible picture taking lighting.
This is a purse I made for my grandma's Christmas present.

The weaving was the most time consuming thing ever. It took a full 8-10 hours to cut out every piece and sew it, and then turn it right side out, then iron it flat. I should have taken a pic of all the pieces together. 

This is the back. There are 2 pockets that close with small magnetic snaps.

Font with flap opened.

This is the inside.  1 pocket. 1 zipper pocket. 1 water bottle pocket.  My grandma always carries a water bottle with her so I knew she would like that pocket. 

And here's a small peak of Dusty's dress in the making.  I'm finishing it today! finally.
