Sewing My Guts Out

I got up bright and early this morning to bring my daughter to school, and after dropping her off I got right to work. I spent basically all day sewing! Here's what I made:

Skirt for Teagan, no pattern, just freestyled it!

Beta testing my personalized tags. Rachel "B"

Another freestyle skirt for Teags. The light purple actually IS even, it was just a quick and sloppy photo job.

I had leftover Lady Gaga test prints from making my silk screens, so I decided to use them and and make a "distressed" Bad Romance themed bag (yep, the patchwork is done inside out on purpose). This is the bag sewn up, it's now going through several cycles in the wash to fray the exposed hems. The interior is silky red satin!

Back of the handbag.

I swear, one day, I will use non-blurry images from my digital camera. Lately, my husband has been using it to take pictures for his police academy so it's been hard to get ahold of! (And also I'm lazy and camera phone is so much quicker!)
