Ode to the road trips

I finished up another fantastic hoodie yesterday. The base is this wonderful stretch corduroy, so it isn't lined. I guess that way you can also get more use out of it since it wont' be TOO hot. Here's the back applique. I'll post more pics after I get my inventory together for my upcoming show--in just 3 weeks!!!

It has patchwork involved with it, along with another applique on the front--not nearly as elaborate but just as cool. :) The inspiration came from a memory from one of my previous road trips. Those highways that straddle the mountaintops and the desert life I find so beautiful.

Check out this beautiful little girls wrap skirt I made last week. I goofed (A-gain!) on the waist size and it isn't nearly big enough for ladies. I had originally intended on it being a short ladies skirt, but, alas, this IS what it is.

It is made from hemp/organic cotton muslin with a beautiful purple quilt shop print for the bias border & waistband. That is a hanging pouch pocket with a butterfly applique. Awww!!!!

If you didn't see this past week's website update, you really should!!! I listed another hoodie:

You might recognize it from what I talked about a while back regarding stretch fabrics. I did it! And I think it looks great!

Well, that's it! Maybe another post this week since this one is a bit rushed.

Ooo that skirt came out super cute! Haha, even if it was a mistake (ever here of the old carpenter motto, measure twice cut once, hehe) :) I'm working on two more dresses today.... yep, my work day is starting at 4:30pm, better late than never i guess :) Can't wait to see the rest of the hoodie!

everything looks so lovely!! I especially love that skirt. I would so rock that!
I wish i had the patience for appliques but these days, with sewing time so minimal, i'm all about the instant gratification (i made a very plain but super awesome straight hemp silk cargo skirt) and we all know that appliques are anything but that!

And in response to your comment on my blog, i really do hope you come out this way for a visit one of these days!! you'd love it out here, especially in the summer!
