A dear friend of mine and fellow artist (Huggie, from http://www.huggieshodgepodge.com/) has completely made my summer by letting me borrow her sewing machine. I’ve been holding out forever to buy one simply because i’m terrified i’ll use it for a week then never touch it again. But I’d really like to expand my shop to more than just knit items (like backing some winter cowls with fleece), I’ve already listed some of my new paintings that i’d been holding off on forever but I brought them to the craft show and got a ton of positive feedback so I listed some of the smaller paintings. I’m terrified to ship the larger prints, i’ve gotten some pretty mangled parcels from USPS in the past and I’d be really upset if that’s how one of my paintings arrived to a customer.
So the sewing machine. I want to make my own clothes, simple stuff, wrap skirts and dresses, peasant tops and tank tops, nothing flashy or fancy just the basics. and I just can’t find that stuff online that’s reasonably priced. I also want a cape, more specifically a travelers cloak. I’ve got my dream closet on pinterest that I’ve been pulling inspiration from. http://pinterest.com/ireth/fashion-inspiration/ . I love fashion and style and beauty and I think i’m finally finding my own unique style. I’ve graduated from graphic tshirts and jeans! Yay! Etsy has been a wonderful place to find some of these pieces and fingers crossed some might just be making their way into my closet soon!
