The Forgotten Stitch

For a long time I've been wondering how to make my measly blog more interesting. See I always forget about talents I have because they seem commonplace in my house. (i.e. My little brother in a metal bender; my older brothers are technical nerds; my littlest brother knits...)

So I'd come up with my two talents (...worth discussing...) ::

And I TOTALLY forgot about the one that always makes people have dinner-plate eyes and extend-a-jaw's.

I sew.

And so (no pun intended), my dear friend Mickey reminded me and helped me to decide to post a segment on things I've made. So I'll start relatively recent.

(Sorry, you don't get to see my masterpiece until after I get through my other projects)

So it begins


The Fabric I Chose

I couldn't find a hair piece that I liked. So I wove this necklace through my hair.

These sandals are my favorite shoes in the whole wide world. I found them at DSW marked down from $50.00 to $12.00. Needless to say, I flipped out. And they were perfect!!

And Finally

THE DRESS!!!!!!!!

I'll try to hunt down some pictures of the actual night!


  1. How cute! You remind me of how Molly Ringwald repurposed her clothes in "Pretty In Pink"! Only youre a lot cuter! I look forward to reading your blog! Oh, and Mick says, "Tell her I sent ya!" Zootsuitmama

  2. Too bad we can't see the necklace through your hair. Mickey sent me...;)

    If I may say so your outfit is pretty risqué...You go girl!

    Be creative and express yourself because there is no time like the present!
