Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Over my christmas break, I had a couple weeks to rest and relax [AKA babysit and take a family roadtrip.] Fortunately, I had a couple days to sew and crochet so here’s what I made!

For my mom and a friend, I made a linen grocery tote.

Then I fashioned myself a shirt after getting inspiration from I used the same concept as when I made a version of the ruffle J. Crew shirt by buying a larger-than-my-size long sleeved shirt and then using the sleeves as extra fabric to make the ruffle.

Since this is the first week back to classes, I’m taking advantage of the little time I have free to sew as much as I can-especially since the projects I am working on are supposed to be Christmas presents. >.< So far on this wonderful Friday evening, I have made my friend a ruffle vest and will soon start on her le sac dress.

It feels good to be back at my sewing machine. It’s been gathering dust for too long! Maybe a resolution for this year [aside from the obligatory "start exercising!"] should be to make something at least once a month. So far, so good :D

Happy 2012!

Comfort Cat

My friend has been having a rough few days, so I wanted to make something to cheer her up. I really didn’t know what to do, but I came across a crochet cat bookmark that I thought was cute and chose it. I ended up shortening the tail because I felt it was too long and I added a small heart.

Cats are <3. Cheer up!

Slouch Hat

I crocheted a slouch hat for my friend’s birthday back in March and then decided to make one for myself [and yarn was on sale when I went to buy a skein for her hat :D ]

The weather has been crazy this week in the Tampa Bay area, but after the crazy rains yesterday, today was beautiful! The night was semi-cool so I figured it’d be a perfect time to wear my hat. My parents said I looked ridiculous, but I like to think I looked pretty good ;)

My nom nom nom-ing isn’t very photogenic, but the sushi was DELICIOUS!

And, just for kicks, my little sister’s doodle of me.

Happy Friday [&April Fool's Day]!
