Time to Create, Cut & Sew Away!

So here I am with all this luscious fabric, and so little time to do something fabulous with it! HA! Since day one, I couldn't wait to see them in garment form...but to be completely honest, I'm not a super-avid sewer - I'm an artist who enjoys drawing and drawing away! Where I'm at? I'm trying to learn and understand the foreign language of sewing. I've always been one to alter and transform garments that I buy vintage. I like jumping right in and being caught up in the creative process of my idea and being able to be hands on and just make something - "fast". Of course it's not perfectly fashioned on the inside and all professional, but it will last me long enough to get the fashionable wear out of it that I like! So developing my sewing skills is definitely a goal of mine. So for now, I'll stick to crafty projects with fabric, and leave the actual sewing up to my gracious and dear friends Cheryl and Karin who when they heard I was desiring to have garments sewn-up they jumped right in and volunteered. (Girls, you are such a blessing to me, and I want to thank you so incredibly much!)

So I spent some time finding sewing patterns that were fashionable and in line with my vision, then went and bought all the supplies and handed off the treats to my friends. And as we speak they are sewing away, creating lovely things. I've received a few of the garments back, and can't wait to show you!! I will definitely be wearing them this spring!

I have a photo shoot planned with friends of mine next month, so stay tuned! I will be adding those pic's to my soon-to-be-updated website. I hope my pictures will inspire you to start a new project or finish an old one, and to be able to get a little glimpse of my creative vision. So, during the weekend I decided to create fabric flowers. Here's a fun pic of them for you! I love mixing patterns and textures together, and those buttons turned out fun! I for sure plan on having project patterns for these flowers that you can once again...stay tuned!
