Jaime’s Purse

Filed under: sewing — Kristin @ 4:49 pm

I made this purse for my friend Jaime for her 21st birthday, which was actually on the 17th. I wasn’t quite finished yet so I just brought my work in progress to her party to show her and told her I’d bring it back since I still had to sew in the lining. This is actually made with fabric leftover from a skirt I am in the process of making. It’s just a little purse pattern, I actually added the closing since there was none. The bag really isn’t as wrinkly as it looks in the pictures, that’s from the light reflecting weird off the fabric. The pattern is McCall’s 3271. The fabric is from JoAnn’s.

Can-Can Costume

Filed under: sewing — Kristin @ 6:51 pm

After making a very simple pillow, I decided to jump right in and make my Halloween costume this year.   And I gave myself less than 2 weeks to do it.  It probably ended up taking me about 40 hours to finish this thing.  I got up early to work on it before work, and when I got home from work, I stayed up late to work on it too.  I was working on it right up until 5 minutes before I went out Friday night.  I had just enough time to snip all the long threads and put it on before meeting friends for a party.  I got to wear it to a party Saturday too, and Sunday to the Henri David Costume Ball, which was tons of fun.  I have a feeling I will be making another complicated costume for the ball next year.  This is the Simplicity 9899 pattern.  I got all of the fabric at JoAnn’s.
