Crafty Tuesday

If Tim Gunn* were here and took a wee peek at my Halloween costumes he would place his chin in his hand, purse his lips and shake his head while saying, “This worries me…”

Quite frankly, the costumes – or rather the pieces of costumes spread from my dining room to my living room and back again – “worrries” me as well. And I have two days…TWO DAYS! How in the world did that happen?

Gah…so no photos this week. I’m off to find me a seamripper and to “make it work.”

*Tim Gunn is the mentor on Project Runway – the television delight that Wendy and Jeff turned me on to – for those of you not “in the know.”

    LOL…well, good thing Tim Gunn isn’t there! 🙂 If I lived close to you, Carrie, I would hop on over and help you out. As it is, I have to make a Mei Tai and a pirate vest for Brian by the weekend. *sigh* Why does it always have to be last minute??

    I actually did a lot of sewing this weekend, but what I have to show today is stuff I made for Anya a few weeks ago. I need to get some action shots yet of the outfits I made for Kai and Anya. Kai was very happy to have some mama made clothes – he wore one outfit yesterday and one today. 🙂 It’s nice to be appreciated.

    Oh dear! I have confidence you will get it figured out in time! We are all rooting for you.

    And if it comes to it….Ariel costume, Party City, on sale for $12 last week. 😉

    Yah. I bought mine.

    (Wow Stacy’s making a Mei Tai AND a pirate vest for Brian? I want to see that one!) Just kidding. But a Mei Tai is still a big [long] undertaking.

    Someday I’ll find the power cord to my sewing machine [that is my friend will find it] and then we’ll finally see what I’m made of!
