No Rain

I love Halloween! I love costumes! And I love love love tutus! So – when my friend Colleen asked me to “make all her Halloween dreams come true”, how could I say no?!

 

While I have made tutus many times before, I have never made one as ridiculously fluffy as Colleen requested! How hard can it be? Just like my other tutus- just more……

40 yards of tulle, 80 yards of ribbon

Dearest Singer, Thank you for my ruffling foot!

Colleen put the rest together. A little black trim on a yellow leotard, arms socks, yellow dye and a thrift store black and white knit shirt( for her hat), pipe cleaners, and a pair of my moms crazy 80’s sunglasses with the lenses busted out.  The combination is AMAZING!!

LOVE-LOVE-LOVE-LOVE!

She’s So Pretty is moving!

November 6, 2011

 

I know! I have been a very bad blogger girl. So many exciting things have happened this year, and I have been such a slacker about documenting it! Hopefully in the next few months I will be able to take a breath, and get everyone caught up on what is going on.
On top of everything else, I am moving my studio! I am leaving the one bedroom apartment I am currently working in and heading to an empty retail space in downtown Lonaconing.
The shop needs work. When I say work, I mean more than just a coat of paint and display demo. The building needs heat and water service installed, a crazy amount of cleaning and a bit of heavy lifting. BUT…. I think by the time my husband and I are done with it, we will have crafted an awesome creative space. A space that people will be able to stop in and see what I am up to. A space that a spool of thread, elastic and needles can be purchased. A space that you can possible take sewing lessons, or teach someone else your craftiness. I am pretty excited about our new endeavor. I will be sure to keep everyone updated with our progress!
