The crazy lady from the fabric store

I met a new friend this week.  I went to Joanns to hit up the 99 cent pattern sale.  I and the woman across from me were both looking at the same vintage apron patterns. We began to talk and ended up chatting at the pattern table for 30 min.  We exchanged emails and have been chatting all weekend.  I sent my first e-mail under the header of "the crazy lady from the fabric store" and as we exchanged e-mails I realized how fun it is to be the crazy lady from the fabric store.  I remember wanting to grow up and be just like my mom's best friend, Neva.  She did all kinds of crafty projects and was about the coolest grown up I knew and now that I'm grown, I can honestly say I've grown up to be pretty similar.  My interests lie in different areas and a small child probably wouldn't be interested in weaving or sewing period accurate clothing but I'm still a crafty person.  It's nice to know I've achieved at least one of my childhood goals.

I couldn't get a camera to work so I scanned these flower pins with my printer. They are folded fabric in an almost origami-ish technique.

This is now my dream sewing room.  Pretty sure my sewing room will never look this good but at least I have a goal.

Finally got a picture of the aprons I made for my sister and nephew. I had a lot of fun making these aprons. Hers is just a basic apron but I used fun gingerbread fabrics and lined it with green cotton twill since the cottons of the outer shell wouldn't be thick enough for a good apron. I made the gingrebread man apron with brown twill, some rick-rack, and really big buttons. Overall this was one of those fun and light hearted projects that gives you a warm fuzzy feel when done.

I just watched another human being die.  Words Fail. Watch.




Cry, Pray, Yell to the Heavens, Whatever you need to do but please God pay attention.  An innocent girl, most likely one of many, died this week.

Just practicing my costume illustration by drawing a costume I've already made. Except the real thing has a natural linen underdress but I couldn't figure out how to draw that with the few colored pencils I had so I just made it yellow/gold. I think it looks OK.


(this is a different dress than the one in my userpic)

Fun Outfits
Originally uploaded by Lyneya
Some fun outfits I illustrated because I couldn't get to sleep and I wanted to try something a little more contemporary.

The one on the left is an evening dress with a gunmetal/grey top and a flowing black skirt. I think I'm going to have to make this dress.

The one on the left is a red, over the shoulder, bubble dress worn with black fishnets and blue hairfalls. cutesy and subversive at the same time
