Sneak Peak!

Here's a quick sneak peak at the new bag I'm making! It's for Melissa's friend Tammy, who likes blues and greens. I'm in love with the patterned fabric. Doesn't it look like a 50s clock?

Crafty Summer Solstice!

Today I made some little flower hairclips and finished another huggle! I haven't decided yet whether I should wear two hairclips at once, or just one. What do you think? The next ones I make will be with little clippies instead of bobby pins...I think it'll work better.
Looking at these pictures...I must be having a blue day!

Happy Father's Day

ROT Rally

In honor of the Republic of Texas biker rally that's in Austin this weekend, I made this illustration:

It's modeled on one of my dream bikes, the Harley Sportster 883 Low. *swoon*

I actually really like this illustration...I may have to screen print it :) I've been in a screen printing mood recently, so maybe I'll break out my stuff some time this week. I'll post pics if I succeed!

Steampunk Costumes!!!!

Oh, I absolutely loved dressing steampunk, and meeting tons of steampunk people at A-kon! We had over three dozen photos taken of us. Our group was even asked by Babbage Patch Kids to be in a publication. We'll see how that turns out, but either way I'm excited! This is my favorite costume I've made so far. And I already have ideas on what I'll do next for it...I'm thinking some sort of corset dress, and it will be beautiful. I just need to work for a little longer so I can buy nicer fabric this time...
Enjoy the photos!!

I sewed my collar, sleeves, bloomers, bustle (my first finished - with lace and ribbon - piece!), and arm piece (reversible with cufflinks! swoon). I also sewed Alex's cowl, which we both looove. I embroidered our little pirate flags on the way to the con in the car (haha). We each painted our own guns. Alex made our leather holsters and all the metalwork (paintbrush/dart gun, arm pieces, monocle) you see! He is truly amazing.

[Oh, and to explain: We're an airship pirate crew, the Rogue Alchemists. In the middle is Captain "Chopstick" James. I'm Frigg - First Mate, mechanic, and artist. Tane (Alex) is on the right; he's our sniper, musician, and secondary mechanic. (Web comic coming eventually!)]
