Fall Projects

Fall Projects

Here’s my visual list of inspiration garments to sew this fall/winter. Pretty ambitious I know. Well I find this format allows me to remember and reference my goals, hopefully increasing the possiblity of actually finishing them! Some of these are already in progress, like the scarf and bag. Most all I have fabric for.

Just a little polyvore to help me orgaize the  projects I want to work on.  Lots of jewelry and  few sewn items.   Bodice and midriff band completed on the yellow eyelet dress.  Its looking good, fit seems spot on.  I did do some alterations- I will detail those on my final post with pictures.

Bedtime Beading

So I didn’t get any sewing done this week.  I was too tired after work to get everything out and sit at my machine.  Instead I made some new summer earrings! I find it very relaxing to lay in bead and make jewelry, much better than watching t.v.  I got inspired by these earrings from Miguel Ases. First I made these, to go with a shirt I am going to make. The beads are faceted CZ’s, seed beads, and blue gold-stone beads.  Then I made two more pairsThese are gold fill beads, wire and opalite stones.
These are lapis and wood beads, with sterling components. I’ve got a bit of a beading bug right now, there are more earrings in the works.  I need to get back to sewing though, I’ve got several projects I want to wear!
