Motivation? Not on Monday.
I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to. I haven’t felt like writing lately. Seems like every day, I’ve woken up thinking, “I need to write a blog post.” Then I talked myself out if it, because not writing a blog post sounded better at the time.
These basic twisted boutique hair bows are for my daughter & nieces Easter baskets.
Honestly, I enjoy sewing and chatting with all of you much more than I like taking pictures and editing. So I just took pics with the iPad today. I’m feeling a little lazy lately. I haven’t had the urge to make anything that requires thinking.
My baby broke her right arm on the monkey bars. Above, you see Bella this time last year; with her left arm broken. (Skating rink, that time.) I’m so bummed about it; but she’s a champ. On the bright side, we got to ditch school a couple days and snuggle last week.
American Girl Doll Shorts & Jeans
I have no idea what I’m doing with my Etsy shop. I think I’ll do better listing complete outfits for 18″ dolls. So I’ll probably wait to list these until I make some tops to match.
I did get good photos of this Faraway Downs dress. It’s made with vintage fabric. I used the same fabric once before to make Bella a top & jeans for my Sewvivor entry.
Random thought: Bella was so small in the Sewvivor post! I’m missing her today. As I’m writing, it’s her first day back in school since the playground smack down. The couch feels empty without her:(
Here’s a birthday bow for a friend at school. This friend happens to be the girliest little foo foo thang you’ve ever met!
We made the hair bow to match this extra pink and lacy chevron skirt. For this particular little girl, I wish it was also covered in glitter and shooting out pink, cupcake scented fireworks. That’s the level of foo foo I’m talking about.
I made a matching little bow and skirt for her doll, too.
This is the Go To Signature dress I made for my friends daughter. I made a size 6, but found out she’s closer to a 7. I added a few inches length with the band. I’m hoping it fits well. I used the maxi length with flutter sleeves and inset pockets. It’s the Birds of Paradise knit again from Girl Charlee.
Notice how I’m being good and sewing through my stash? Notice.
Here’s my final dress for next months Hollywood Sewalong challenge. Did you catch my Sewalong muslin? This one didn’t go as well.
See how it’s just tossed up there on the mannequin, unfinished? That’s because I had a series of mishaps while sewing it. I’ll wait til next month to tell you more. Just know this: I’m cursed for sewing women’s wear. My ego is bruised, & I kind of want to punch this dress in the face. In fact, this may be the reason for my lack of motivation. I hate it when a project doesn’t go as planned. I usually pout for a few days.
I plan to sew along with the Simple Dress Challenge at Vintage Zest though. Simple sounds nice.
One last share. This post has taken me hours to write. That’s because I’m laying around catching up on Vampire Diaries as I write it. After that I’m gonna watch Dance Moms, and any other trash I feel like. I’m confessing because I don’t have anything to show on my blog for a bit; and I wanted you to know why.
Pretty much cuz I’m being a bum. I wish I could download some motivation. What do you guys do when you have zero urge to be productive?
