A pirate who occasionally forgets how to use a keyboard, apparently.  After at least a week, finally, a new post!

I’ve made little progress in the wedding dress field.  I have the crinoline pieces cut, sitting, mocking in the corner of my living room.  I’ve come up with my share of excuses, too:  I don’t have the right needles.  I don’t know what to do next.  I’m worried about ruining the fabric.  Oops, I seem to have cut my right hand off.

But no more!  Tomorrow I dive head first into the world of satin and poof!

In other news, I have a few new items available in my Etsy shop.  Like a pirate vest!

I love this thing!  As usual, it is made with upcycled fabric and trims.  The buckles, even, are rescued from an old pair of pants.  Its kind of adjustable, as the straps have three hole choices, and its fitted besides.  I could totally storm the seven seas in this.

And another pair of bloomers:

These are a bit simpler, as well as a bit shorter, than my others.  Nice though, and pretty easy to wear.

I haven’t been as productive lately.  Aah!  The Olympics!!!  Oh my god!  Michael Phelps is my freaking hero, and I don’t even like swimming.   Oh, and I made thirty tiny bags to send to a lovely woman in Idaho, who will be putting them in her shwag bags for an upcoming craft show.  If you’re in Bellevue, Idaho on Labor Day weekend, check out the Bellevue Labor Day celebrations in City park.  Great fun to be had by all.

Until next time!  Which will be sooner than last time, I promise.

Today’s theme colors are red, white and brown. You know, like vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and a cherry on top? I find this combination to be just as comforting as a big bowl of sweet, with a little dash of weird thrown on top. Even my bedroom is decorated in these colors. But I don’t see it around nearly as often as I’d like- so I decided to remedy that!

These are my pride and joy, and are on their way to a cyclist in Australia. So cute! They were a lot of fun to make, and will be a lot of fun to wear.

My favorite part- this big red ribbon isn’t just for show. The bottoms here are drawstringed, instead of being elasticized. That means that you could wear them with or without all that poofy.

And this guy is a superstrong, reusable grocery bag. The pics aren’t the greatest, which I ought to address, but the bag is great. It is fully lined, and doublestitched, and topstitched.

Plus it has the inner pocket to stick your grocery list, cash, cards, chapstick, cell phone, etc. And a little button closer so nobody steals your green beans!

Everything shown today has been crafted out of either recycled or remnant fabrics. Let me know what you think!
