More pottery!

This was another piece I made in pottery. I know it isn't that great because I rushed and tried to make this for my grandma as a christmas present. The cup is dark blue even though it looks black in pictures. I think it was a great practice piece and I enjoyed making it in class.

Things I made in pottery class

Last year I took a pottery class and made this dog treat bowl. We were supposed to make something that reminds us of the past, future or present. I had picked the past and the present. The dog bone represents the past for my first pet. The M represent my dog's name which is Miller. The inside of the dog bone represents the present because I am very artistic. This project took me eight weeks to finish because everything was hand built. I love it so much.

Pattern Organizing

 I just started back sew this year. Since then it seams like I can not stop buying patterns.I finally found a way to organize my pattern collection so I can find them easily.

First I separated the patterns from the envelopes. Then I put the pattern envelopes in a three ring binder and divided it by style: pants,skirts,dresses.

 Then I put the patterns and instructions in a 6x9 envelopes.
Last I put the envelopes in a pattern box in numerical order.

-Simplicity 2603
-E6000 glue
-stick pins

Yay! I Love My body

 I am so excited about my duct tape dummy I made. I have wanted to make one of these babies for the longest. My sister and I worked up a sweat making this dummy. she was exausted from wrapping multipe layered around me and I was tired of being in that HOT duct tape suit. overall we did finish the dummy working together and  I think it turned out nicely.

The Must have Book For A Beginner.

This book is great for beginners. I would recommend this book to a person who has never sewn a pattern a day in thier life. This book is filled with a variety of beginner patterns. This book is a great book but a little to basic for my liking. I love the pictures in the book, it really makes the tutorials easy to follow. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to sew.

The greatest book of tips!

This book is a must have. The book is filled with so many hidden treasures on every subject about sewing. I have learned quick tips and tricks when reading this book that I never even heard before.The book has also saved me money and time when it comes to sewing. If you don't have this book you should definitely go out and get it.

A Glimpse Of My Life

I have been sewing since I was in fifth grade and took my first Joann's sewing class with my mom. I have had the passion to become an fashion designer for the longest. This year I am planning on pursuing my passion and going to school for fashion design. This fall I will be attending Harper college in IL. I am determined to make it to the top. This blog will show my journey to become an fashion designer.
