what i've been up to ...

I haven't been posting as often lately. Apologies to anyone who has noticed my absence.

I'm going to do a giveaway within the next week or so. The item(s) will be something handmade by me, like a clutch or jewelry maybe? Any ideas of kinds of things you'd want? Comment and tell me!

I have been craving shopping reeeally bad lately but I've been trying to avoid spending money. I decided to try sewing some new clothes to ease my feelings of withdrawal. Here are some creations I came up with:

P1010011
This is a romper I made and a little vest/shrug/bolero thing with pleats.

Below is a flowy maxi dress I made of jersey with some cool sheer appliques I cut out.
P1010024

P1010027

P1010031

P1010016
A skirt I made and me being a dork doing an action pose!

P1010038
This is a purse I sewed out of a windbreaker. This is what I did with the hood and one of my friends bought it awhile ago! Awesome!

And here's a picture of my dog because I think he's cute and he always looks so guilty when I pull the camera out.

Soooo ... let me know in the comments if you have any specific things you like that you'd be interested in seeing me do a giveaway for. And let me know what you think of my sewing lately. And how has everyone been? I need to catch up on my google reader.

A clutch is quite a great idea ;]
What you did to the windbreaker is pretty cool, but I loved that dress the best, it's pretty money. The appliques look fabulous.
Your dog is really cute and indeed very guilty-looking haha.
Hope you have a great week :D

I adore your creativity. I wish I had the talent to make something when funds were low, alas, I work next to a Nordstroms. Self control. Welcome back.

the action shot with the skirt was a seller for me. Too bad for me your a skinny mini and something like that would never even pretend to fit me.

You've got style girl.
