Lucia and Pablo love smelling the sweet spring rain.
As many of you out there, I am a truely last minute kind of woman…..meaning….I will work and work until the last minute. I will procrastinate anything of remote importance to the last minute…..SO of couse I am going to craft to the last minute before my week long visit to Newport Beach, California.
I initially planned on making some mens cargo patchy shorts for the ol’ etsy shop, but you know me….ever distractable and always multitasking……I almost finished them, but I decieded to stop and pack for my trip.
In between working on these pants I became insprired to update a hoodie I no longer wore.
I went to this phine university for two years before moving to Alabama…..This is where I met the love of my life….actually we met at a music festival four hours from the university….the rest is history. 😉
One of my dogs kindly chewed a hole near the wrist cuff, which was remedied by shortening both sleeves….no hem necessary because jersey knits rock!!
I added a nice chunky applique to the fron to cover the boring silk screen….I never played any sports at SIUC anways….. I used a jersey tank top for the floral print and scraps from previous applique projects (I don’t throw anything aways, just ask Miguel….)
I like the way it turned out, very organic ya know? It was also a good way for my to further hone my applique skills…..I’m still pretty green in this area.
As requested by a few stitchn’ bitches here is a pic of the swim suit I made for my trip. I did some elastic stitchin on the bodice for support and shape. I can wear it with the rouching in the front or back.
…..I’m too shy for a full out modeling session of this…..I’ll take a pic on the beach once I have a lil liquid courage. tee hee ;P
Hugs and Love,
