Is it the new sewing room?

Oooh Wee!...I have been creating some super cute clothes!....Some of my sewing friends know that a little while ago I found a cool sewing blog written by a pretty little lady who goes by the name of Mimi G....she creates some of thee nicest things...and she isnt new to this game at all and it shows baby!...anyways, she posted on her blog that she had been checking out some jean from True Religion and the other one from Diesel....they are both almost $300.00!!!!!...ummmm, no I would rather have that in fabric and plants....LOL...but the skirt is sooo cute so she decided to create a tutorial so we all could have our own original....(did I mention that this is a FREE tutorial)....boy oh boy did mine come out cute....Here is a link to her blog and believe me you might be on the hunt for a new sewing machine if you dont have one already ....her middle name should be INSPIRATION....I also made a super cute halter top that is a "shirr" thing baby! (in my Austin Powers voice)...I usually take photos and display them but these clothes are sooo cute I have to show them on me....Photos dont do them justice like at all....Well, maybe just a sneaky peek before I debut them....hehehehehehe!

Hi Y'all

Hi folks, I have been trying to space my posts out but I thought I had better write something before too long....I have been doing okay, and the classes are going all right although I have to write a paper EVERY friend says its just to rule out the weak but sheesh!...I finally copped the new Sew It All (volume 4) and I must say I am impressed....there a lot of good stuff to sew up and enjoy, information-stocked, and packed with sewing goodness once again...I have them all now and I literally cant sleep because of it....on a pie chart, sewing would be thee biggest piece of my world...well, besides my life! LOL!....I also picked up the new Sew Stylish (a magazine Threads puts out, soooooo cool and thats my second one of I hear collection?)....I recently organized a virtual sew-along with a couple of family members, just waiting on them to say they copped the pattern and fabric....we are sewing up #1808 from Simplicity's SewStylish line......I have also been doing a buncha other stuff like refashioning and dyeing fabric...did some tie-dye and revived an old halter top to a beatiful purple hue.....Bliss indeed....Well of course I have photos to share because they speak louder than me sometimes...and thats LOUD!....hehehehe talk to you soon!

Me and my daughter's t-shirts..I refashioned mine...

This is a skirt I whipped up along with my refashioned t-shirt....I love colors, especially bright ones!

My reason for insomnia, no seriously....

Sewing is a gateway

Good morning everyone I guess I should say since its 12 am right now where I am...I have been in my sewing room literally all day creating things and doing other little business...I have some good news to share!...One of my friends is opening a boutique in Indiana and she wants to display some of my bags!  How cool is that?...I mean seriously, how cool is that?...and I am due to meet with someone else for her boutique here locally later on today!....I am feeling the sewing love I tell you what!...I love to sew and thats all there is to it....I whipped up a maxi skirt earlier but I didnt take any photos...I plan on wearing it on my birthday so I will take a couple shots of it then....I sewed up another bag from my Tashae line I created...One of my cousins said it reminded her of Hello Kitty!...I thought that was thee coolest thing especially since I have loved Hello Kitty since I was a little the present I am sprucing up a halter top that was Lavender in color...I used Tulip's Permanent Fabric Dye and now its a pretty violet color....Im putting it in the wash is going well, I only have 5 more courses left!...(the home stretch is killing me though).....I believe I have another purse to share from my Tashae line too but I will have to check the last post to see if I did already...well I dont want to go on and on so I will get to the photos now hehehehe!.....P.S. I really love my new sewing room...I really do....and I have some super cute new business cards!  Yep, sewing has completely taken over my life....and I love it!

The latest bag by me, MsKRS...its called the "Toot" which is a nickname my Mom gave to my daughter when she was a little girl...:)

Do you see Hello Kitty? :)

Pretty violet purple color....I cant wait to wear it! :)

Yes, Yes!  These are cool!...Tulip products are the best!

The halter that is getting a makeover tonight...the before photo...

Super cool, new business get this, they are Pink, AND have pinked fabric around the edges on the front AND the back!...I got the idea for my name because I love pinking shears and look at this card....Sewing is definitely for me....;)  (new business cards courtesy of Vista Print although they were NOT free like they advertise)
